Low-Carb Air Fryer Margherita Pizza

Low-Carb Air Fryer Margherita Pizza Recipe

You can use the biggest portobello mushroom you can find to fit your air fryer (as I did), or use smaller portobello mushrooms to fill the space.

Food cooks quickly in the air fryer, so every minute makes a difference. Pull out the air fryer tray and check on the status – overcooked pizza will release a lot of liquid, or become burnt.

Enjoy your pizza on its own or compliment it with a salad, a smoothie, a healthy complex carb or a faux carb.

  • one large portobello mushroom cap (stalk and gills removed) as big as your air fryer can accommodate
  • olive oil to grease the mushroom cap
  • a small sprinkle of dried oregano, pizza seasoning or Italian seasoning

Toppings Per Pizza (Estimate by Eye):

  • 1 tbsp pizza sauce (or pasta sauce such as marinara sauce)
  • 20g fresh Mozzarella cheese drained, patted dry & torn by hand to small pieces
  • 1 pitted olive sliced thinly
  • 1 tbsp diced green pepper

Suggested Garnishes

  • fresh and/or dried parsley (basil)
  • freshly cracked (pink) salt
  • sprinkle of red chilli pepper flakes
  • a small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil


  1. Prepare the portobello mushroom cap. Remove the mushroom stem (save them for cooking). Remove black gills (optional but highly recommended) by scooping them out with a spoon. Brush the mushroom cap including the edges with some olive oil. Sprinkle a bit of dried oregano or pizza/Italian seasoning on the mushroom cap.
  2. Bake the mushroom cap. Place portobello mushroom stem side down and bake in an air fryer (no need to preheat) at 200°C (392°F) for three minutes.
  3. Make the ‘pizza’. Carefully take out the baked mushroom cap with tongs and flip it stem side up. Spread pizza sauce evenly on the mushroom using the back of a spoon. Top the pizza with cheese, sliced olive & diced pepper. Return the portobello mushroom back to the air fryer to bake it at the same temperature for about 5 minutes, or when the cheese is melted. Take it out immediately from the air fryer once it is done.
  4. Garnish with fresh parsley, salt, red pepper flakes and a light drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
