How to Cook Red Baron Deep Dish Singles Air Fryer
1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F:
Depending on the size of your air fryer, preheating it to 375°F takes an average of 4 minutes. For smaller-sized air fryers, it may take a shorter time. For a large air fryer, it may take 5 minutes or so.
You should preheat your air fryer to prepare the cooking environment of your red baron deep dish singles. Since you want them to cook immediately when they are placed in the air fryer, it is logical enough to prepare the air fryer for the optimal desired cooking temperatures.
2. Spray the air fryer basket:
Before placing your red baron deep dish singles on the air fryer basket, unplug your air fryer and apply a cooking spray on the surface of the air fryer basket. Spraying the air fryer basket prevents your red baron deep dish singles from sticking, hence the ease of removing them when cooked.
When spraying, you only apply a light coating as over-spraying your basket is not necessary.
Also, avoid spraying the heating elements; they are not meant to be sprayed, as this might compromise the functionality and reliability of your air fryers. Be careful and make sure your air fryer is unplugged when spraying the air fryer basket.
Spraying should be done after preheating. Applying the cooking spray after preheating helps prevent the cooking spray from evaporating.
3. Place the red baron deep dish singles in the air fryer:
Your red baron deep dish singles come frozen in a package. Carefully unpack from the packaging and put it on the sprayed air fryer basket. Plug the air fryer back, ready to start cooking.
4. Cook your pizza until the cheese melts:
The temperature at which your red baron cooks differs depending on the type.
It takes between 6 and 8 minutes to cook completely for Red Baron Mini Pizza. Bringing a Red Baron Mini Pizza into a complete cook under this time frame requires a cooking temperature of 400°F.
If you are cooking Red Baron French Bread Pizza, it averagely takes between 5 and six minutes cooking at 350°F.
