  • 1 no Zucchini, medium sliced into ¼ inch thick rounds
  • cup Mozzarella Cheese grated
  • ½ teaspoon Crushed Black Pepper
  • Salt to taste


  • Cut the zucchini into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place them in a dish and sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Arrange the zucchini rounds in a single layer on the cooking tray of your air fryer. If the cooking tray is not non-stick, spray oil on it before adding the zucchini.
  • Add a thin layer of grated mozzarella cheese over rounds.
  • Now sprinkle freshly crushed black pepper on them.
  • Set your air fryer to 370°F or 180°C (no preheat). Cook rounds for about 7-8 minutes, or until the cheese is dark golden brown. If you preheat air fryer it will take lesser time to cook.
  • If you let the zucchini rounds cool, the cheese will get even more crispy.
  • Once the crisps are ready serve them immediately with your favorite dip.


If you do not serve the air-fried snacks right away, the moisture in the zucchini will cause the crispy top to soften when it cools. You can, however, re-crisp them in the air fryer if you are making a big batch.
