Air Fryer 6 Minute Pita Bread Cheese Pizza
Looks so good, doesn’t it? It’s not reeeeallly pizza, but, hey, when you have a hankering and want it fast. It’s good, really good. You may be wondering why, if I already make a really good pizza, what is up with this recipe.
Well, while I do love my homemade, wonderful delicious Classic Margherita Pizza, there is also room for this Air Fryer 6 Minute Pita Bread Cheese Pizza.
I mean, it’s like really good man. From passing thought in the head to plate in like 10 minutes…what’s not to love? Plus, not everyone is interested in making Pizza Dough by scratch.
Thanks to Gail in my Facebook Air Fryer Group, for this lovely idea.
Since this is an Air Fryer 6 Minute Pita Bread Cheese Pizza, just grab your favorite Pizza Sauce and get it done quick.
If you want to make your own Pizza Dough, my New York Style Pizza Dough is fabulous, so check it out some time.
You might be thinking, hey, what the hell is up with you and all these New York inspired recipes. Well, I grew up in Miami, Florida and both parents were from New York.
My dad was from Brooklyn. At that time, Miami, Miami Beach and the Kendall area were pretty much ‘South’ New York.
Many snow birds and lots of people moved to Miami because of the warmer weather. Wonderful, New York type restaurants open all over the place.
My grandma used to Summer in Miami Beach, like all the other Jewish Grandmas and Grandpas. I also spent a lot of time in New York.
You will notice that I use sliced Mozzarella Cheese, rather than grated. It’s just my preference; use whatever you like.
You can even omit the Extra Virgin Olive Oil if you like.
I think it gives the Pizza a nice taste.
Onion and Fresh Garlic are my Pizza toppings of choice.
When I make my Classic Margherita Pizza, I have to be careful not to get any Onions on the hubs side. Somehow, they always migrate.
Make sure to slice the Onions very thin, so that they will cook and not be crunchy.
I put them and the Minced Garlic on under the Cheese, so that the Garlic won’t get burnt.
When making real, honest to goodness, Pizza, you need a very hot oven. Pizza only needs a few minutes to cook.
In the Air Fryer and with Pita Bread, we need a lower temperature for a longer time to give the Pita a chance to warm up and not burn, since it is already cooked.
The Toppings will have a chance to cook through and the Cheese will become bubbly. The Air Fryer 6 Minute Pita Bread Cheese Pizza, will be done in just 6 minutes.
Therefore, keep an eye on the Pizza, as yours might be done in 5 minutes, or it may be 7 minutes.
So that the Cheese and Toppings don’t fly all over the place, use a Short Legged Trivet to keep things in place.
My husband, who KNOWS New York Pizza better than most people…… actually enjoys this Air Fryer 6 Minute Pita Bread Cheese Pizza recipe.
