I’ve got such a simple, easy, and kid friendly recipe today with Air Fryer Mini Bagel Pizzas!
It’s a great way to mix up pizza night at home that is not only delicious, but very budget friendly.
This would also be an amazing after school snack for the kiddos or a quick weekend lunch.
I went with the mini pepperoni for toppings, but really topping ideas are endless.
And the kids could even help with this one, my friends!
How to make Air Fryer Mini Bagel Pizzas
First separate 5 mini bagels and place them cut side up.
Then brush them with melted butter.
And sprinkle with garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
Place them cut side up in the air fryer and set it to 400 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes.
Next spread some pizza sauce on each one.
And pile on lots of shredded mozzarella cheese!
Finally top each with a few pieces of mini pepperoni… It’s only fitting to use the minis to go with the mini bagel theme 🙂
You could of course mix it up and add any toppings you like.
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bagel is crisped how you like.
This recipe makes 10 mini bagel pizzas total.
But, you may need to do two smaller batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
I do recommend checking the air fryer after a minute to make sure none of the mini pepperoni flew away.
If they do simply add them back to the pizzas.
A little sprinkle of parsley makes air fryer mini bagel pizzas even prettier!
Sometimes the BEST meals are the most simple and least complex.
My family was absolutely thrilled to have a week night pizza dinner!
Hot and fresh from the air fryer to the dinner table in no time.

Air Fryer Mini Bagel Pizzas are an easy and kid-friendly dinner recipe for the air fryer, you can even mix it up with toppings of choice!
- 5 mini bagels (I used plain)
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- garlic powder, Italian seasoning
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup pizza sauce
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/3 cup mini pepperoni
- Optional: parsley for garnish
Split the mini bagels in half and brush each cut side with the melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
Place them cut side up in the air fryer basket for 2 to 3 minutes at 400 degrees.
Note: This may need to be done in two smaller batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
Top each with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and mini pepperoni slices. Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 2 to 3 more minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bagel is cooked how you prefer.
Note: Check the air fryer basket after a minute to make sure none of the mini pepperoni fell off the pizzas (due to the circulating air), if so simply place them back on.
Let cool slightly before serving and garnish with parsley if desired.
