2 slices of thick white bread or Texas toast
2 tbsp marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Extra virgin olive oil for brushing
1. Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (182°C).
2. Brush each bread slice lightly with olive oil on both sides.
3. Spread a tablespoon of marinara sauce on one side of each slice.
4. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella evenly over the sauce.
5. Add pepperoni slices if using, and sprinkle with Italian seasoning or torn fresh basil.
6. Place the prepared bread slices in the air fryer basket. Make sure they don’t overlap for even cooking.
7. Cook in the air fryer for about 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the bread are crisp.
8. Carefully remove the pizza toasts from the air fryer, let them cool for a minute or two, and serve warm.

Variations & Tips
This recipe is as versatile as it is delightful. For a vegetarian twist, skip the pepperoni and add some sliced olives and bell peppers. If you like a bit of a kick, a sprinkle of red pepper flakes does wonders. And for those who cherish extra flavor, try swapping the marinara for pesto sauce or adding a slice of provolone cheese beneath the mozzarella for a wonderful melt.
