Air Fryer English Muffin Pepperoni Pizzas

English muffins can be used for so much more than just spreading on some butter or your favorite jam. Don’t get me wrong that is really yummy, but what if you are craving pizza, but you don’t really feel like making any from scratch or breaking out the frozen kind. These can satisfy that craving. English muffin pizzas are great for a snack or a meal. Spread on a little pizza sauce and top it with your favorite pizza toppings and your taste buds will be happy. What’s even better is that these are cooked in the air fryer which means you can have your mini little pizzas even faster than if they were cooked in the oven.

Here’s what you need:

*English Muffins

* Pizza sauce, homemade or jared

*shredded cheese; I used a blend of mozzarella and cheddar

*Pepperoni or any other pizza topping

Preheat the air fryer at 400°

Split apart each muffin and spread some pizza sauce on each half.

Sprinkle on the cheese and top with the pepperoni.

Place inside of the air fryer basket and cook for 2 minutes. Open the basket and make sure that none of the pepperoni have blown off due to the fan. If they have, just carefully….the basket will be hot….place the pepperoni back onto the pizzas. Continue to cook another 1 to 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the English muffins are toasted.

*Note* Cooking time might vary depending on the brand and size of the air fryer.

Very carefully remove the pizzas and serve.


English Muffin Pepperoni Pizzas

These are great when you are trying to use up those last few English muffins in the pack. My hubby actually came up with this a while back. These are pepperoni, but some times I just use cheese. You can add any topping you like, the possibilities are endless.

I have to confess that I almost deleted this post because the picture didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted, not to mention these do not look all gooey with cheese. I like these pretty crispy, but it still is very cheesy. These are really quite tasty. You can add as much cheese as you desire. I thought these were just too good not to share.

Here’s what you need:

*English muffins

*pizza sauce

*shredded cheese; I used a combination of cheddar and mozzarella

*sliced pepperoni

Preheat oven to 425°.

Lay English muffins halves cut side up on a baking sheet.

Spread desired amount of pizza sauce on to each muffin.

I found this pizza sauce by Pomi.

I have used their tomato products that come in cartons, but this was the first time I had seen this. It’s so good. It’s a little chunkier than a traditional pizza sauce.

It’s mildly seasoned so it’s not over powering. It works really well with these kind of pizzas.

Next add desired amount of cheese on top of the sauce.

Then add the pepperoni.

Bake about 8 minutes or until edges are crispy and cheese is melted. I like mine really crispy so I sometimes leave mine in a few minutes more.

Remove from oven and serve.
