Homemade Pizza Bagels in the Air Fryer

Homemade Pizza Bagels in the Air Fryer

Use the Air Fryer to prepare Pizza Bagel Bites! This easy little snack tastes better than microwave popcorn and doesn’t heat up your kitchen in a matter of minutes!

As the children are completing their online coursework from home, I’m all about simple and quick lunch and snack options! I was therefore rather proud of myself when I came up with the concept to create pizza bagel bites and cook them in the air fryer! To be honest, the kids were also rather pleased with it!


  1. ½ cup pizza sauce
  2. two tiny bagels
  3. One cup of divided mozzarella cheese
  4. Slices of pepperoni or any preferred toppings


  1. Set your air fryer’s temperature to 400˚F/204˚C.
    Split the bagels, then arrange them so that the preferred toppings—cheese, sauce, etc.—are atop each half of the bagel.
  2. After adding the cheese to the air fryer basket, cook for 5 minutes, or until it melts.
  3. Serve right away.


When the cheese is fully melted and only slightly browned, you can tell the pizza bagel bites are done. You can cook the bagel pizzas for a little while longer, until the bottom becomes extra crunchy and the cheese browns on top, if you like yours to be extra crispy. Be aware that the cheese won’t bubble as it would in an oven.
