4.5 from 4 reviews Save Print Crispy Air Fryer Frozen Pizza | Everyday Family Cooking Author: Stephanie Recipe type: Snack Cuisine: Italian Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 12 mins Total time: 27 mins Serves: 6 servings (1 pizza) Ingredients Pizza Dough

1¼ cups warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)

⅓ cup oil (3 tbsp) [use coconut oil for dairy-free] [I like olive oil for extra flavor and health benefits]

2½ tsp salt (kosher salt recommended, but you can use regular table salt if preferred) [My favorite brand is Maldon sea salt. You can also use any sea salt that you like. I don’t use fancy salts. Just use the regular stuff, it’s fine]

2 tbsp olive oil for brushing on dough [This is optional. You can skip this step if you want to.]

Olive Oil-packed Sun-dried Tomatoes

3 tbsp olive oil [or more to coat kale]

4 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil [I like these brand]

Kale (optional)

5 leaves (about 1 cup chopped) Instructions Thaw Pizza Dough If your dough is frozen, thaw overnight in the refrigerator or for at least 30 minutes at room temperature. Prepare the Air Fryer Next, preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F. While it’s heating up, combine warm water and oil in a large mixing bowl and stir until well-blended. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt to the dough and knead until a smooth dough forms. To make the kale, first wash and cut the stems off the leaves (they will be too tough to eat).

Then pile all 5 leaves on top of one another, roll them all up into a cigar shape, then slice thinly crosswise with a sharp knife to create thin strips. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine kale strips with 3 tbsp olive oil and massage by hand until kale softens slightly. Set aside. Add Kale to Pizza Dough In a small mixing bowl, combine olive oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes with 1 tbsp olive oil. Set aside.

You can also use 2 tbsp of prepared or canned sun-dried tomato pesto if desired. If using kale, add the strips to the pizza dough and spread out evenly. Drizzle tomato mixture generously on top of kale and put back in the oven for 10 minutes, or until crispy crust forms on top. Serve Warm Pizza Crust is best served right away but can be made up to 3 days ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator if desired. To reheat, place on a baking sheet in preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes before serving. 3.5.3226
