air fryer pepperoni grilled cheese

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 13 minutes
Serving Size: 2 sandwiches


  • 4 slices of your favorite bread
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Marinara sauce, for dipping (optional)


  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (180°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Assemble Sandwiches:
    • On two slices of bread, evenly distribute the shredded mozzarella cheese. Top the cheese with pepperoni slices and then place the remaining two slices of bread on top, creating two sandwiches.
  3. Butter the Bread:
    • Spread a thin layer of softened butter on the outsides of each sandwich. Sprinkle a pinch of garlic powder on the buttered sides.
  4. Air Fry Grilled Cheese:
    • Place the buttered and seasoned sides of the sandwiches in the air fryer basket. Air fry at 360°F (180°C) for 4 minutes.
  5. Flip and Air Fry Again:
    • Carefully flip the sandwiches, so the other side gets golden brown. Air fry for an additional 4 minutes or until the cheese is melted, and the bread is crispy.
  6. Check for Doneness:
    • Keep an eye on the sandwiches to ensure they reach your desired level of crispiness.
  7. Serve:
    • Once done, remove the pepperoni grilled cheese from the air fryer. Let them cool for a minute before slicing.
  8. Optional Dipping Sauce:
    • Serve with marinara sauce for dipping, if desired.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy the delicious and crispy air fryer pepperoni grilled cheese!


  • Feel free to customize by adding other ingredients like sliced tomatoes, onions, or your favorite cheese blend.
