Air Fryer French Bread Pizza Ingredients

French bread – I used store bought bread from my local French baker.

Melted Butter – I brushed melted butter on the bread to enhance its flavor.

Pizza sauce – I am using homemade pizza sauce for this air fried French bread pizza. You may opt for a store-bought pizza sauce if you have it.

Mozarella cheese – best topping for pizza.

Ham – It is what’s available at hand so I am using it.

Green olives – leftover when I made Spanish Sardines.

Cooking Instructions

Cut the French bread into 4 equal parts then slice crosswise.  Stack the sliced bread and put a flat plate on top then push downwards to flatten it.

Brush melted butter on top of the bread then toast them in the air fryer for 2 minutes at 390F.  The goal is to slightly toast the bread so that it will not absorb the pizza sauce that we will put it.  Plus, the butter the we brush into it enhances its flavor.

It is now time to prep our pizza bread and put the toppings.  Spread pizza sauce on top of the bread then sprinkle grated mozzarella cheese on top of it.  Now is the time to put toppings of your choice.  For this recipe, we are using sliced ham and green olives because it is what is available in my kitchen at the moment.

Feel free to put your favorite and preferred pizza toppings.

Cook the pizza in the air fryer for 3 minutes at 390F or until pizza is cooked.

Cooking Tips

  • Do not over-toast the bread.  Remember that you still have to cook it afterwards.  Having brown/ish edges on the bread is enough.  It should not hard to bite just like pizza dough.
  • You may use butter spread instead of melted butter.
  • Air Fryers differ so keep an eye on your pizza bread from time to time while cooking.

  • Pepperoni
  • Basil
  • Bell Peppers
  • Italian sausage
  • Pineapple slices
  • Spinach
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Meatballs
  • Tomatoes
  • Shredded Chicken

Homemade Pizza Sauce

If  you do not have store-bought pizza sauce, you can make your  own DIY homemade version just like I did.  All you need are the following:

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Place them all in a bowl and mixed them well.  Why you need tomato paste when you already have tomato sauce? It is to thicken the sauce.  Tomato sauce alone is too runny.

Storage and Reheating

You can Store this pizza before or after cooking.  You just put them in sealed food container and put in the fridge or freezer.  They last for 3 days in the fridge or up to two weeks in the freezer.

You can reheat cooked pizza for 2 minutes at #90F.

Frozen Air Fryer French Bread Pizza

The good thing about air fryers is that you can cook frozen foods with it.  If you are cooking frozen French bread pizza, just extend cooking time to 5 minutes or until pizza is cooked through.
