  • 1 ½ cups small broccoli florets

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup pizza sauce

  • 1 tablespoon no-salt-added tomato paste

  • 4 whole-wheat naan or whole-grain pitas

  • 8 small cherry tomatoes, quartered, divided

  • ¾ cup shredded whole-milk mozzarella cheese, divided

  • Fresh basil leaves, grated Parmesan cheese & ground pepper for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat a 6- to 8-quart air fryer to 360°F. Toss together broccoli and oil in a medium bowl; spread in an even layer in the air-fryer basket. Cook until crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  2. Combine pizza sauce and tomato paste in a small bowl.

  3. Place 2 naan (or pitas) in a single layer in the air-fryer basket. Cook until lightly browned on top, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip; spread half the sauce mixture over the tops. Top with half the broccoli, half the tomatoes and half the mozzarella.

  4. Cook until the cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining breads and toppings.

  5. Garnish the pizzas with basil, Parmesan and pepper, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
