Air Fryer Pizza Sliders – FAQs

  1. Q: Can I use any type of bread for these sliders? A: Yes, you can use any type of small-sized bread roll. Hawaiian rolls are a popular choice, but dinner rolls or mini brioche buns also work well.
  2. Q: Can I add other toppings to the pizza sliders? A: Absolutely! Feel free to customize your sliders with your favorite pizza toppings like mushrooms, olives, bell peppers, or even pineapple.
  3. Q: How long do these sliders keep? A: These sliders are best enjoyed immediately after cooking. If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the air fryer or oven until warmed through.

Recipe Substitutions

  • If you don’t have pizza sauce, you can substitute it with marinara sauce or even a bit of tomato paste mixed with some water and Italian seasoning.
  • Feel free to swap out mozzarella for other types of cheese. Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or even a blend of Italian cheeses would be delicious.
  • Vegetarian? Substitute pepperoni with veggies like bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms or use vegetarian pepperoni.

Recipe Tips

  1. Use Precooked Toppings: If you’re adding additional toppings like sausage or bacon, make sure they’re precooked as the air frying time might not be enough to fully cook these ingredients.
  2. Don’t Overfill: Be careful not to overfill the sliders, as the fillings may spill out during cooking.
  3. Check for Doneness: All air fryers are slightly different, so start checking for doneness around the 10-minute mark to avoid burning the sliders. The cheese should be melted and bubbly, and the tops of the rolls should be golden brown.

These air fryer pizza sliders are perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or even as a party appetizer. They’re delicious, easy to make, and sure to become a new favorite in your household!
