This varies depending on the recipe and your air fryer, but it typically takes 7 minutes at 385°F.

How do you crisp up the tortilla pizza crust?

The secret hack to a crispy tortilla like a traditional thin-crust pizza is to precook the tortilla in the air fryer for a few minutes until it is toasted before adding toppings. Other recipes have you add your toppings to a cold tortilla. When air-fried, it gets toasty on the edges but is soft in the middle under the sauce and ingredients. My easy recipe is a much better method for a crispy tortilla that is strong enough to hold your delicious ingredients but still soft and chewy.

Ingredients & Substitutions

Here is everything you need to make the best-tasting personal pepperoni pizza on a tortilla in the air fryer:

Tortilla: You have lots of options for the tortilla. I recommend using flour tortillas because they crisp really well. Depending on your dietary preference, you can use low-carb tortillas, whole wheat tortillas, gluten-free tortillas, or spinach tortillas. I do not recommend using corn tortillas because they become more of a tostada once they bake. You can also use pita bread or naan bread for a thicker crust.

Pizza Sauce: You can use your favorite sauce including pizza sauce, marinara sauce, tomato sauce or tomato paste.

Pepperoni: Use turkey pepperoni for a leaner option or any other cooked meat.

Mozzarella Cheese: This is my favorite cheese to use because it melts and gives the classic cheese-pull. But, you can use cheddar cheese, provolone cheese, or a blend of cheeses for variety.

How to Make My Thin, Crispy Oat Flour Pizza Crust Recipe

Here are easy, detailed, step-by-step instructions for the best way to make oat flour pizza dough. They’re also repeated in the recipe card at the bottom of this blog post.

Step 1: Prepare Your Tortilla Pizza Crust

Preheat your air fryer to 385°F (195°C).

Carefully place your tortilla in the bottom of the air fryer basket.

Place a small heatproof glass or ceramic bowl on top of the tortilla to keep it from blowing around in the air fryer.

Air fry for 4 minutes at 385°F. Flip the tortilla over half way and move the small bowl to a different spot on the tortilla. The tortilla should be stiff enough to hold its shape but not toasted brown yet.

Once done, carefully remove the pizza from the air fryer using tongs or a spatula and place it on a cutting board or plate.
