Air Fryer Pizza Toast. How to use an air fryer to make delicious mini toast pizzas. Using air fryer toast as the pizza base and then loaded with tomato sauce, cheese, fresh sliced tomato and oregano.
Air Fryer Pizza Toast
Today as part of our theme for easy brunch recipes we are sharing with you how to make a delicious air fryer pizza toast.
I used to have a thing for pizza toast, long before an air fryer had even been invented.
Instead like most people that wanted a variation of air fryer grilled cheese, it would be cooked in the oven on the grill.
I used to remember just how amazing my mum’s pizza toasts tasted. Though back then in the late 80’s they were just called cheese on toast.
My mum always made them the same way loaded with cheddar cheese and with sliced tomato on top.
That is what originally started my obsession with cheese and tomato on top. Especially if there was a sprinkle of oregano just to make them taste even better.
I remember when my aunt looked after me, she would forget the tomato and it just never tasted the same and felt rather boring in comparison.
She soon got used to my addiction and would bring tomatoes from the allotment just to spoil me with my cheese and tomato toast obsession.
Even now, with the invention of the air fryer and cooking pizza toast the modern air fryer way, it is so nice to have some pizza toasts for brunch.
Air Fryer Pizza Toasts is also one of those wonderful brunches that every age love.
If you want to get your kids involved in making brunch, then let them help you make pizza toasts in the air fryer.
Air Fryer Garlic Toast
As a HUGE garlic addict, I had to mention how easy it is to make air fryer garlic toast too.
I remember an old friend of mine introducing me to garlic toast when I was in my teens and before I met Dominic.
He was training to be a chef and for supper would make us amazing garlic toast. Garlic would be minced and then mashed up with a little butter.
The garlic butter would then be loaded onto the bread before it cooks, and the end result would be delicious garlic toast.
Now this method works just as well today, as it did in the late 90’s and you can use it to make some delicious last-minute air fryer garlic toast.
Air Fry Cheese Toast
To make air fryer pizza toast, is very similar to if you air fry cheese toast. The only difference is that you’re been selective with the toppings that you are placing on top of your bread before you air fry it.
Instead of starting with butter like you would when you air fry cheese toast, instead you start with a pizza sauce.
Then you load it up with cheese, maybe some tomato like we have done and then finish it off with a sprinkle of oregano.
You could also mix and match too.
Imagine your favourite pizza toppings and load them up onto your air fryer toast and OMG you have a delicious air fryer pizza!
My first thoughts for favourite air fryer pizza toast toppings include:
- Cheese & Ham
- Meat Feast
- Chicken & Pineapple
- Cheese & Pepperoni
- Garlic Cheese
Though if you are following our recipe and adding meat remember to make sure the meat is cooked before you add it as a topping, or your air fryer pizza toast timings will be way out!
Pizza Toast In The Air Fryer
Pizza toast in the air fryer is fun and easy to put together. I like to have my ingredients laid out in front of me ready, just like you would in a restaurant kitchen.
I will have homemade tomato sauce ready to go in one bowl, grated cheese in another, sliced tomato sat on my chopping board and seasonings to hand.
- I start first by adding homemade tomato sauce
- I load it up with grated cheese
- I add sliced tomatoes
- I add seasoning
Then the air fryer pizza toast goes on and gets cooked at a high enough temperature so that the pizza toast will not get soggy and will cook perfectly.
Air Fryer Pizza Toast
- Get your workstation ready with your various pizza toast toppings.
- Season your sliced tomato with salt.
- Place your slices of bread onto the air fryer shelf and add to it your tomato sauce, grated cheese and sliced tomato. Add a sprinkle of oregano on each slice.
- Cook for 5 minutes on the top shelf of the air fryer oven, or the air fryer grill pan at 200c/400f.
