Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Food Processor Pizza Dough

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • ¾ cup whole milk ricotta cheese

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz.)

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt flakes

  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

  • Honey (optional)

Food Processor Pizza Dough

  • Olive oil or nonstick cooking spray

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 package active dry yeast

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)

Directions

  1. Preheat air fryer at 375°F. Divide Food Processor Pizza Dough into four 4-oz. portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough into an 8-inch circle. Prick all over with a fork. Place in air-fryer basket and cook 3 minutes. Remove from basket and place, top side down, on work surface.

  2. Drizzle crust lightly with 1 1/2 tsp. of the oil and spread with 3 Tbsp. of the ricotta cheese. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese, 1/4 tsp. of the crushed red pepper, and 1/8 tsp. of the salt. Return pizza to air-fryer basket and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden. Repeat with remaining dough and toppings.

  3. Before serving, sprinkle pizzas with basil and, if desired, drizzle with honey.

Food Processor Pizza Dough

  1. Coat a medium bowl with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a food processor combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. With the food processor running, add olive oil and warm water. Process until a dough forms. Remove and shape into a smooth ball. Place dough in the prepared bowl; turn once to coat dough surface. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let stand in a warm place until doubled in size (45 to 60 minutes).

*Tip

For a delicious garlic-herb crust, add 1 Tbsp. dried Italian seasoning, crushed, and 2 cloves garlic, minced, to the flour mixture when preparing the dough.

*Make-Ahead Directions:

At this point, the dough portions can be placed in a storage container that has been lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray or brushed with olive oil. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Or place each dough portion in a freezer bag that has been lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray or brushed with olive oil. Seal, label, and freeze up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.
