Recipe Notes

The picture is not mine.


While not really a recipe, I just wanted to make a post to refresh the site. But more specifically, I wanted to talk about cooking pizza in the air fryer. I would rather not reheat pizza in any other way than in the air fryer. Just set the air fryer to 350 and the put the slice or two of pizza in for a couple minutes and you have the best tasting reheating pizza. This is by far better than reheating in the microwave.
