Air Fryer Pepperoni Pizza Fries
You know you can’t go wrong when pizza and fries are in the same sentence, right?
I’ve always been a pretty adventurous pizza eater, things like pineapple, artichokes and figs are right up my alley when it comes to pizza toppings. But there is also something so good about a classic slice of pepperoni pizza! These fries are SO easy to make and will satisfy any pepperoni pizza craving in a slightly healthier manner!
If you want to read more about what an air fryer is and how it works, check out this post!
But the long and short of it is that it allows you to fry foods with little or no oil. I have this air fryer and I love it! It’s on sale right now for $20 off!
How to Make Air Fryer Pepperoni Pizza Fries
To make these Air Fryer Pepperoni Pizza Fries you will start off by slicing 2 russet potatoes into 1/4 inch match sticks. I like to leave the skin on for extra texture!
Once you have your potatoes cut, toss them in a little bit of olive oil, oregano, salt and black pepper. Now they are ready for the fryer!
You will fry them at 400°F for 20 minutes. Make sure you give the basket a quick toss about every 5 minutes so they fry evenly on all sides
After 20 minutes, remove the basket and top the fries with shredded mozzarella cheese and sliced pepperoni. Return the basket to the air fryer for 5 more minutes, this will melt the cheese and toast the pepperoni!
How to Serve Air Fryer Pepperoni Pizza Fries
The cheese helps the fries all stick together (like a pizza 🙂 ). So it is pretty easy to carefully slide the fries out of the air fryer onto a plate for serving.
Sprinkle them with some fresh parsley if you like! And serve with warm tomato sauce for dipping!
