Pizza Nachos are great as a snack or even a quick dinner. Once you try them, you’ll never think of nachos the same way again!


Now that you’ve found the best ever nacho appetizer recipe, you can essentially stop looking for others. LOL. Just kidding of course, but once you try these, and see how deliciously tasty and easy they are to make, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them before?!!

HaHa! No worries, you found them now, and can live happily ever after! The end! 🙂

Ingredients for making pizza nachos:

  • Tortilla Chips
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Dried Basil
  • Dried Oregano
  • Garlic Powder
  • Baby Pepperoni 

Additional ingredient suggestions for making pizza nachos:

  • Green Pepper
  • Chopped Garlic

  • Ham
  • Ground Beef
  • Cooked Pork
  • Alfredo Sauce
  • Pineapple
  • Pesto
  • Olives
  • Onions
  • BBQ Sauce
  • What do you like on your pizza?


Please note that while this is primarily an air fryer method, I’m also giving oven and even grill options listed below.


How do I make pizza nachos in an oven?

Preheat the oven to 375-degrees.

Lay a single, even layer of tortilla chips on a baking sheet, some overlapping is fine.

Top with your favorite pizza ingredients.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and melty.

Serve immediately.

Can I make this recipe on an outdoor grill? If so, how?


Follow the same instructions for making them in an indoor oven, but place one or two bricks on top of the outdoor grill grate.

Heat the grill and place the baking sheet on top of the bricks.

Cover the grill and allow the nachos to cook until the cheese is golden brown and melty.

How long will cooked pizza appetizers keep in the refrigerator?

I doubt you’ll have any leftover, but if you do, cover them well and keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.

How do I reheat pizza nachos?

In the oven is best. That way they’ll reheat crispy. If you reheat in the microwave, they’ll still be yummy, just not crispy.

350-degrees until hot (approximately 5-7 minutes).

What if I wanted to make keto pizza appetizers? What then?

You can substitute pork rinds for the tortilla chips.

I’ve not tried it, but I’m fairly certain it would still work, and still taste pretty great!
