Optional Toppings Pizza Fries
If you want to make loaded fries, then we can take these fries over the top with a handful of extra ingredients. Here are some of our additional favorite toppings:
- Parmesan cheese, freshly grated. The parmesan cheese adds a bit of nuttiness, fruitiness, and saltiness to the fries.
- Garlic butter, the perfect pizza base for the fries.
- Basil, whole, or julienne over the homemade fries after they come out of the air fryer.
- Italian seasoning, for a subtle sweetness and savoriness to the fries.

Check and rotate the tray. Turn your air fryer down to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for an additional five minutes.

Place the fries back in the air fryer for five minutes and cook until the cheese has melted, about five minutes.
