Remove the crusts from the bread and flatten the center of the bread with your thumb.

Place a small amount of tomato sauce and cheese, about 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of each per slice.

Brush the edges of the bread with egg yolk and press them to seal the pizza pockets. Using a fork to mark them can be helpful.

Preheat the air fryer to about 180°C (about 360°F) for a few minutes.

Place the mini pizza pockets in the basket of the air fryer, making sure not to overcrowd them. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are golden and crispy.

Once cooked, remove the mini pizza pockets from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.


Possibility to add additional toppings of your choice such as pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, etc.
