This Ninja Foodi air-fried cheesy flatbread makes an excellent side dish to pretty much anything. Soups, stews, chili, or hey, make it your main and have it on its own!
Ninja Foodi Air Fried Cheesy Flatbread Recipe
I love this cheesy flatbread because it comes together really quick and if you use premade, commercially prepared dough, it’s even quicker! That being said, if you wanted to make your own dough, here’s a really easy homemade bread recipe that you can make fry bread from!
Take the dough out of the tube and unroll to be sure there’s no holes or tears in the dough. Roll it back up lengthwise, like a cinnamon bun dough, and cut 1″ sections.
Roll out the dough flat into about a 6 -7″ circle
Make up the garlic herbed butter
Brush the dough with the herbed butter
Place the metal rack in the Foodi pot and then place the buttered dough on top of the rack. Air fry (air crisp) the dough at 350 for 4 – 5 minutes. Keep watch so that it doesn’t burn and flip the dough to the other side once one side gets golden brown.
Once the dough has been flipped, add the cheese to the top. Continue air frying until the cheese has melted and become all ooey-gooey!
Can I Use Other Pre-Made Doughs?
Yes, I think you can. However, I wouldn’t use any of the croissant (crescent) doughs or the biscuit doughs. They have much more leavener in them and will result in a different end product. Pizza dough is the best choice when using a premade dough.
What Other Toppings Can I Use On This Cheesy Flatbread?
Oh, the possibilities are endless!! You could use all sorts of things, just think of your favorite flavor combinations. You could go with:
- Shredded chicken and brie or cheddar
- Fresh tomatoes (peeled or unpeeled) and salami pieces
- Cooked ground beef and cheddar with other toppings like a cheeseburger
- Instead of using garlic butter, you could use a bbq sauce and put pineapple pieces and bacon (apply the bbq sauce when you place on the toppings)
- Proscuitto and pears with brie (no sauce)
Do I Have To Use Only The Ninja Foodi?
Not necessarily. I like using the Foodi because it doesn’t heat up the kitchen and takes less power to use but you could certainly use the oven or toaster oven. You could also use your BBQ grill and which would add a great flavor.
If you use your grill, you could also make a sweet flatbread, similar to these grilled cinnamon bun flatbreads I made on my grill for brunch! They were AWESOME!
Also, if you’re new to the Ninja Foodi and are a little shy about working with it, take a peek at this article I wrote All About The Ninja Foodi that has some great tips and tricks. It might make you feel more comfortable working around it!
When you make this ultimate Ninja Foodi Cheesy Flatbread, I’d LOVE to hear what toppings you used! Honestly, it’s fantastically delicious just as is, but having some extra toppings from time to time just take it to the next level!
Thanks so much for stopping by The Salty Pot today, and I hope you have a fantastic day!!
