Keto Air Fryer Classic Pizza uses the popular “Fathead” pizza dough recipe to make a delicious personal pan pizza in your Air Fryer. Although there are a number of steps in this recipe, once you make a few you will become a master pizza maker! You will have the perfect snack meal for yourself or your whole family. The Air Fryer keeps the crust firm and delicious. The cooking time is minimal. You can also use the same ingredients listed in Joanie’s recipe and make one large pizza in your oven.
However, this recipe is all about our “Air Fryer.” Joanie loves the new addition to her kitchen. I suspect we will be posting a lot of new recipes using this tool with Joanie’s Tasty Low Carb touch! Our Air Fryer has been given counter space in our kitchen, so we know it is a keeper! This has surprised me. Joanie usually loves to cook traditional stove-top recipes featuring sauces and special ingredients. But the “Air Fryer” is so handy and creates such delicious keto dishes!
We have made pizzas before using a cauliflower based crust. In fact, one our more popular posts is our Cauliflower Crust Pepperoni Pizza. We have also used a variation of the “Fathead Dough” when making our Chicken Bacon Ranch Flatbread. One of Joanie’s other variations on the “Fathead Dough” is where she substitutes Ricotta Cheese for the Cream Cheese and makes a delicious bread-like crust. Check out the recipes on our site using this crust recipe:
- Low Carb Cheesy Garlic Bread
- Keto Shrimp and Guacamole Appetizer
- Keto Crab Crostini with Avocado Tartar Sauce
Even our Chaffle Recipes contain the same basic ingredients as “Fathead Dough” except Joanie substitutes Cheddar for Mozzarella Cheese. The proportions may vary and sometimes Coconut Flour is better to absorb moisture. However, you get the idea that the “Fathead Dough” is the key ingredient.
We use the dough recipe often to make “Air Fryer Pizzas.” Once you have it down, you can make double and triple batches of the pizza crust and freeze them for other days. Simply take the completed crusts, cool on a cooling rack, separate them with parchment paper and freeze in a zip-lock bag. We usually thaw ours before using, but 2-3 minutes in a preheated 300 degree “Air Fryer” will work also.
Our Air Fryer Choice – Cosori 5.8 Quart Size
We did a lot of research before deciding on our Cosori Air Fryer. It has become a major gift item for the Holidays and we can see why. Quicker meal prep, ease of use, uniform results with measured cook times, no greasy splatters, and a lot of fun. This was a major step for Joanie, since she is so used to creating in her kitchen, blending ingredients, chef-style techniques for sauces, and using her stove top and Dutch Ovens. But, she really enjoys her Cosori Air Fryer and looks forward to preparing more Keto recipes.
We do suggest a 5.8 quart if you have a spot for the larger size. The Cosori has a more square-like basket and it just holds more than the round basket models. We like the digital pre-sets and the 1700 watts of power. The Cosori model we chose can also be controlled with a phone app over WiFi – it even responds to Alexa. You can find the model we recommend by clicking any of the Cosori Air Fryer links or pictures in this post.
Aside from the Air Fryer noted above, we find that the best way to make the perfect pan pizza is to use an Air Fryer Pizza Pan. So, our first tip is to invest $ 10 and order one today. Some people simply line the bottom of their Air Fryer with parchment paper (to cover the holes) and make an odd shaped, but delicious pizza. However, our 7 inch pizza pan of choice makes it so much easier to flip the “Fathead Dough” and to top the pizza before baking. It is a real advantage to be able to remove the pan from the bottom of your Air Fryer.
You can review and order these handy little pans by clicking the picture above or any Air Fryer Link. We have two and likely will add another as they can be used for other Air Fryer recipes.
The main tip we can offer is to wet your hands before forming the dough into the crust shape on top of your 7 inch parchment circle. The dough is a bit sticky to work with. If it is too moist you can always dust with a little almond flour. We form our crusts by hand and try to keep the dough a bit thicker on the outside of the circle. This will aid in rising and in will also keep your ingredients in the center of your pizza. Again, keep your hands moist when forming the crust.
We really recommend flipping the crust after 6 minutes. Use heat proof gloves, as the pan will be hot. You can discard the parchment paper to cook the second side. Even if you make fork holes in the crust before cooking, you may also have to press the crust down with the back of a spoon before cooking the second side. The recipe will make three crusts. We place them on a cooling rack while we cook the extra crusts. Then we top them, all at once. We top them directly in a pizza pan and then complete the final Air Fryer bake!
