16.3ouncesGrands flaky buttermilk biscuits (or a generic version)
2tablespoonsall-purpose flour,for rolling out the biscuit halves
4ouncespepperoni slices(48 slices)
8ouncesmild Italian sausage,cooked and crumbled
2cupsfreshly shredded mozzarella cheese
2tablespoonsItalian seasoning,⅛ teaspoon per pizza (optional garnish)
Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Set it aside.
Carefully separate the grands biscuits in half.
Lightly sprinkle the flour on your rolling surface, on the biscuit and on your rolling pin and roll the biscuit out to a 4 to 4½-inch round.
Spread 1 tablespoon of the pizza sauce per biscuit round.
Lay 3 slices of pepperoni on top of the pizza sauce.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the crumbled sausage on top of the pepperoni.
Top the sausage with 2 tablespoons of the shredded mozzarella.
Sprinkle with ⅛ teaspoon of the Italian seasoning.
Carefully transfer 2 to 3 (depending on how big your air fryer basket is) to the prepared basket. Try to keep the edges from overlapping. Cook for 5 minutes at 400°F. Repeat for the remaining mini pizzas. Serve while hot.
Some air fryer instructions prefer olive oil spray, grapeseed oil spray, or similar types of natural sprays and not sprays like Pam. Check your air fryer manual for which nonstick sprays are acceptable.
If you want a bit larger pizza, you can skip separating the biscuits and roll out a 5 to 6-inch circle. Double the sauce and toppings. Cook for 5 minutes at 400°F.
Keep the biscuit dough chilled between cooking the little pizzas in the air fryer. If you leave the biscuit dough out in between cooking sessions, the dough warms up and is more flimsy, harder to roll out, and harder to transfer to the air fryer basket even with a spatula.
I found transferring the little prepared pizza to the air fryer basket was made easier by using a spatula.
