Why You Need This Recipe

Red Baron deep dish singles pizzas are frozen personal pizzas available in a variety of flavors, such as pepperoni, four cheese, and supreme.

Typically, you’d cook these mini pizzas in the oven. However, that takes about 23 minutes of cooking time, and that’s not even counting preheating the oven!

The air fryer is truly your friend here. You’ll get the same melted cheese, browning, crispy crust and all the goodness you love in a pizza, but in only about 10 minutes of cooking time.

Plus, the air fryer preheats much faster than the oven as well, so you’re really looking at under half the time! Now that’s convenient for a meal when you’re in a rush.

Recipe FAQs

Can You Cook Red Baron Deep Dish Pizza in an Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook Red Baron deep dish pizza in an air fryer. The air fryer delivers a similar result to conventional oven cooking in about half the time.

However, most countertop air fryers only fit the personal size frozen pizza and will not accommodate a larger, family-sized option.

How Long Do I Put Red Baron Deep Dish Pizza in an Air Fryer?

On average, you put a Red Baron deep dish pizza in an air fryer for 8-12 minutes. The time will vary a bit based on your specific air fryer.

This is assuming a single serving sized pizza, as the full sized version does not fit in most countertop air fryers.

Do I Need to Defrost a Frozen Deep Dish Pizza Before Cooking?

No, there is no need to defrost a frozen deep dish pizza before cooking. Remove from packaging and cook directly from the frozen state.

This applies regardless of your cooking method, be it oven, air fryer, or microwave.

How Do You Reheat Deep Dish Pizza in the Air Fryer?

To reheat leftover deep dish pizza in the air fryer, cook a slice at 350°F for 4-6 minutes, until warmed through. The slices are thicker than traditional pizza slices so they’ll take a little longer.

If yours are very cheesy, place the slice on a piece of foil or parchment cut to size for easier cleanup.

This method works with both leftover frozen as well as restaurant pizza that’s being reheated.

Recipe Pro Tips

  • If you don’t preheat your air fryer then just add 2-3 minutes to cooking time
  • There is no flipping required for this recipe, as that would make you lose all your toppings!
  • These Red Baron deep dish personal pizzas are just over 5” in diameter. They do fit in the baskets of my 8 qt Ninja Dual Zone air fryer! However, if you have a very small or narrow air fryer, you may want to double check that it will fit
  • My frozen deep dish pizzas were cooked perfectly after 9 minutes, verified via instant read thermometer. However, other air fryers may vary slightly

  • To reheat, place a slice of deep dish pizza in the air fryer at 350°F for 3-6 minutes, or until warmed through
