Isn’t the air fryer amazing? It makes everyone just taste better. The story is the same for these calzones or homemade hot pockets. I’ve been making the oven-baked variety for many years. So, of course, the recipe had to be converted to an air fryer recipe!
If you love you air fryer as much as me, make sure to pick up a copy of my new book. The “I Love My Air Fryer” Affordable Meals Recipe Book. It’s a cookbook filled with 175 recipes for the air fryer. You can find it at Amazon, Walmart, Barnes & Noble, and your favorite local bookstore.
What is in an air fryer calzone?
This recipe calls for puff pastry, which you can find in your grocer’s freezer section. If you prefer, you can also make your own pizza dough and use that instead.
Either way, you’re going to fill each calzone with your sauce, cheese, and your favorite toppings. We kept it simple with pepperoni, but you could do bell peppers, Italian sausage, or even Canadian bacon with pineapple.
How long does a calzone go in the air fryer?
10-12 minutes. If you are cooking them from frozen, increase the time to 15 minutes.
