Whether you have children, are hosting a casual party, or just love finger food, then you’ve probably cooked frozen pizza rolls. These tasty, bite-sized mini-pizzas are a delicious party favorite no matter how they’re prepared, but you haven’t experienced them at their best unless you’ve air-fried pizza rolls with an air fryer.

Oven/Microwave Prep vs. Air Frying Frozen Pizza Rolls

Because preparing food in a deep fryer is unhealthy, most adults preparing pizza rolls typically choose to bake them in the oven or prepare them in the microwave. However, even when baked at a high temperature and turned half-way through, the pizza rolls often come out with a soggy, uneven finish. When heated in the microwave, pizza rolls will be heated through, but they’ll have a limp, rubbery finish that will give them an unappealing, gummy texture. They still taste okay, but wouldn’t it be better if they were cooked all the way through with a crisp, golden finish?

Nothing cooks pizza rolls as well as an air fryer, period.

That’s where the air fryer comes in.

Cooking Pizza Rolls in Air Fryer

Since no oil is needed for cooking pizza rolls in an air fryer, you can prepare these with no added fat or calories. An added bonus is that the air fryer will save at least 15 minutes since there is no need to preheat first. Plus, these pizza rolls are cooked to perfection in only seven minutes, which makes using an air fryer more appealing than the deep fryer, oven, or microwave.

        Just came here to say, I’ve been using this recipe for months now, it’s LIFE CHANGING. I will never use the oven for them again, it saves so much time. No preheating, and they come out so much crispier! I have the Cosori brand AF, and 7 minutes usually has the filling spilling out. 5-6 minutes seems to be the sweet spot for me! Sometimes, I also forget to shake them halfway, but they still turn out great! Not sure I notice a difference. I probably use my AF for pizza rolls more than anything else.. *TIP* dip them in ranch or blue cheese dressing, it’s AMAZING! You could also brush them with olive oil or butter and put Italian seasoning and/or parmesan.. YUM! Thank you so much for a simple, yet perfect way to cook pizza rolls! Brb, making some now

    Is there anyway to prevent them from exploding? Almost every time I make them the filling ends up blowing out of them lol. Sometimes ill poke a hole in all of them and it sometimes helps but its a pain.

    My first batch bursted cause I didn’t check on them. The next batch came out perfect when I didn’t leave the air fryer.

      Hi, MB – Yes, we highly recommend cooking in a single layer. They will cook faster and more evenly in one layer. If you need to layer them due to size of basket and/or time constraints, shake or stir them multiple times during the cooking process and expect it to take longer.

    I cooked mine following your instructions, except I preheated. They were a little too done. I’ll either not preheat or reduce time next time.

      Hi John. Each air fryer is unique, I have one that heats 20% over temp, and another(Emeril) that heats 20% under temp. So, use the directions as a baseline, while keeping a watchful eye on your Pizza rolls. Nobody wants ruined pizza rolls, those things are like gold.

      Dear Dong, I totally disagree with you. Pizza rolls are very soggy in the oven. Frozen Pizza Rolls are darn near custom made for an air fryer.
