Everyone loves a good pizza night, but if you don’t feel like ordering out or turning on the oven, these easy air-fryer tortilla pizzas are the way to go. With its thin tortilla crust, these personal pies cook up much faster than traditional pizza with only a fraction of the prep time. I love using these 3-ingredient sweet potato tortillas as the base, but flour tortillas or your favorite storebought tortillas will work as well!

If you love these tortilla pizzas, you’ll also love these mini zucchini pizza bites, broccoli cheese bread, cheesy pizza rollups, and air fryer naan pizzas! And if you’d like to try making an easy pizza dough yourself, be sure to try out these easy mini pizzas with a simple 2-ingredient homemade dough!

What You’ll Need

Here is what you’ll need to make these air fryer tortilla pizzas:

Ingredients to make air fryer tortilla pizza.
  • Tortillas: Fajita-sized flour tortillas work great for these tortillas a storebought option, but I love using these simple-to-make homemade sweet potato tortillas as the crust. They add a subtle sweetness to the pizzas and are a fun way to incorporate some veggies!
  • Mozzarella: For that classic cheesy taste. Feel free to swap it out with your favorite shredded cheese. I love grating the cheese myself because it melts so much better when cooked for a delicious, gooey pizza pie.
  • Pizza Sauce: My favorite sauce to use is this 365 brand, but any pizza brand will work!
  • Toppings: I love to use tomatoes and chopped spinach as toppings but feel free to use any of your favorites! Pepperoni is a classic and leftover chicken, basil, riced broccoli, corn, and red onions are great options as well.

Recipe Substitutions & Additions

  • Tortillas: You can make your own sweet potato tortillas, use storebought flour tortillas, or swap the tortillas with naan dippers for these easy-to-make air fryer naan pizzas.
  • Pizza Sauce: You can substitute the pizza sauce with marinara sauce. I don’t recommend using something like pure tomato paste because it is very concentrated with little flavor.
  • Mozzarella: For a dairy-free version, replace the mozzarella cheese with dairy-free shreds.

Tips For Success

  • Do not place too many toppings on top of the pizza so that they stay in place when cooking. The tortilla pizza crust is also very thin, so be mindful of toppings so that the crust isn’t too soggy.
  • For a crispier crust, lightly brush the edges of the tortilla with olive oil.
  • Be sure. to check on the pizza at the 3-minute mark for doneness. Since tortillas are so thin and precooked, this pizza cooks fairly quickly. We don’t want that cheesy goodness to burn!

Recipe FAQs

Why is my pizza soggy?

If your pizza turns out soggy instead of crisp, this means that too much pizza sauce or toppings were used. Try to go light on the pizza sauce and toppings since the crust is so thin to ensure it comes out nice and crispy.

Why did my toppings fly all over the air fryer?

This can happen due to the circulation in the air fryer. Try sprinkling a little extra cheese on top of your toppings to keep the toppings in place when cooking.

What do these air fryer tortilla pizzas pair well with?

These tortilla pizzas can be served with a side salad, or roasted veggies like broccoli, asparagus, or corn!
