I like bagels. If you like bagels too, here is another hotshot and time-saving bagels recipe for you. Today we are making air fryer pizza bagels.
Oh, yes! Bagels and pizza together. That sounds yummilicious, no?

How Are We Going to Make Pizza Bagels in the Air Fryer?
We are going to use pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni slices to turn plain bagels into homemade pizza bagels. And then we are simply going to put them in the air fryer to cook.
You can use toppings of your choice. Some topping suggestions for this recipe are:
- bell peppers
- black olives
Can I Make These Pizza Bagels Ahead of Time and Store Them?
Yes! You can save uncooked homemade pizza bagels in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Is It Possible to Make Pizza Bagels in An Air Fryer Instead of An Oven?
Yes, why not? You can conveniently make pizza bagels in an air fryer than in an oven. Simply place the pizza bagels in the preheated air fryer basket and cook for up to 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. They’ll turn out to be chewy and crispy, just like your favorite takeout pizza place, because they’re prepared in an air fryer.
Can I Air Fry Frozen Pizza Bagels?
Sure, if you have frozen pizza bagels, go ahead. However, remember to put enough room between each pizza bagel so that they heat evenly and don’t stick together.
How Long Does It Take to Cook Frozen Pizza Bagels in An Air Fryer?
Frozen pizza bagels in the air fryer will take 5-6 minutes to cook perfectly at 360 degrees F. The cooking time also depends on the air fryer you are using.
