Pop open a can of store-bought biscuit dough for a 20-minute recipe for Air Fryer Pizza Pockets loaded with marinara sauce, cheese and all your favorite toppings.
Pizza appears in many ways, shapes and forms around here, from pastas and soft pretzels to pull-apart breads and even cinnamon rolls (you need to see those to believe them!). But all it took was a recent recipe that instantly went viral to clue me in to the fact that biscuit dough + pizza toppings + an air fryer is a winning equation!
How Long to Cook Pizza Pockets In an Air Fryer
Once you’ve assembled your pizza pockets with your go-to fillings, it’s time for a quick egg wash and then a hearty sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese. This last step makes these extra, well… extra, but that crispy cheese on top is essential!
The cooking technique here comes down to not preheating the air fryer, as you want the gently rise in temperature to essentially bake the biscuits rather than fry them. So pop your pockets into the basket, crank your air fryer to 300°F and let the 10-minute countdown begin!
