Cheesy, hot, delicious pizza rolls are a good choice on any day. Perfect as an afternoon snack for the kids, as finger food at a party, or as a solo meal in front of a good movie, you really can’t go wrong with a batch of pizza rolls. Especially if you can just pop them into your air fryer.

Making air fryer pizza rolls could not be easier. And even though they have a much lower oil content than deep-fried pizza rolls, they still come out crispy and perfect. Plus, the lower oil content means that they’re a little healthier than their fried or baked counterparts. 

Also, unlike the oven or the microwave, cooking them in an air fryer ensures that they come our fully cooked and crispy, hot from the inside out.

So if you’re ready to make air fryer pizza rolls, here’s how.

How to cook pizza rolls in air fryer

One of the handiest attributes of an air fryer is that it doesn’t need much time to preheat. Five minutes is more than enough time, so you can just pop the switch while you grab what you need. Which is, very simply, just the pizza rolls.

You can also make a quick dipping sauce to elevate your pizza roll experience. Pizza sauce is great for obvious reasons, but ranch, BBQ sauce, and garlic sauce are also great options for this meal.

Once the air fryer has had a chance to heat up, place the pizza rolls in the basket and into the appliance. Do not over-fill the basket, as the air fryer won’t be able to cook everything through evenly. You want them to be in one even layer in the basket. 

If you have a big family or are cooking for a party, our 12l air fryer is ideal. If you’re making pizza rolls for yourself and one or two lucky loved ones, our 4l air fryer will work perfectly for you.

Let the rolls cook for three minutes, then remove the tray and shake them through. Replace the tray and cook for a further three minutes. Carefully remove them, and voila!

They will be very hot at this point, so it is best to let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
