Frozen Pizza Rolls in Air Fryer Recipe

Frozen pizza rolls


For this recipe, all you will need are some frozen pizza rolls. You could use different sizes of pizza rolls, depending on your air fryer.


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 380°F (190°C) for 3 minutes. Your air fryer may state you don’t need to preheat it, but for short cook time foods, you would have better results with a preheated air fryer.
  2. Add the pizza rolls in a single layer. If you want them to cook evenly, it would be better to not overlap them. It is still not a problem if they are touching, just make sure to shake the basket a few times during the cooking time.
  3. It is time for cooking. Air fry your pizza rolls for about 7 minutes. Cook time is different from an air fryer to another, so check your pizza rolls frequently to ensure they don’t come up overcooked or undercooked.
  4. It is time to eat! Enjoy your air-fried pizza rolls by dunking them in pizza sauce or whatever dipping sauce you like! They will be hot when just out of the air fryer, so make sure you let them cool before eating them!

  2. If you are cooking multiple times, make sure you check your pizza rolls frequently so that they won’t burn or overcook. Try reducing the cooking time after each batch.
  3.  You could also reduce the cooking time if you don’t like when the pizza rolls burst.
  4. Make sure to let your pizza rolls cool after they’re out from the air fryer, they could be dangerously hot!
  5. If your pizza rolls start to burst before the cooking time ends, you can end the cooking process.
  6. If you want your pizza rolls to be super crispy, you can add a spritz or two of oil before cooking them.
  7. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the “Air Fry” function.
