For the Pizza Sauce:
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce (store-bought or homemade)
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- Salt and pepper to taste
For the Toppings:
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or vegan cheese for a vegan option)
- Assorted vegetables of your choice, such as bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and olives, thinly sliced

- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
- Prepare the Pizza Dough:
- Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to your desired thickness. You can make one large pizza or divide the dough to make individual pizzas.
- Brush with Olive Oil:
- Brush the pizza dough with a thin layer of olive oil. This helps prevent it from becoming too soggy when cooking.
- Prepare the Pizza Sauce:
- In a small bowl, mix the pizza sauce with dried Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Spread the sauce evenly over the prepared pizza dough, leaving a small border for the crust.
- Add Toppings:
- Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce.
- Arrange your favorite vegetable toppings on the pizza.
- Air Fry the Pizza:
- Carefully transfer the prepared pizza into the EaZy MealZ XL Air Fry Crisper Basket. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
- Air fry the pizza at 375°F (190°C) for approximately 10-12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown, and the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
- Remove the air-fried veggie pizza from the EaZy MealZ XL Air Fry Crisper Basket and let it cool for a minute before slicing.
- Garnish with fresh basil leaves if desired.
- Enjoy: Slice and enjoy your homemade air-fried veggie pizza while it's hot and fresh!
