Air Fryer Pizza Rolls

Homemade Air Fryer Pizza rolls are a huge hit in our house. They are easy enough that my older kids can make them on their own and fun for the little kids as well to help stuff with toppings that they love.
These are perfect to enjoy at lunchtime, snack time, or dinner time. They are fast, easy, and crispy and will be a huge hit when you serve them in your house. 
We love to alternate these Air Fryer pizza rolls with our Pizza tots, our air fryer crescent pepperoni pizza pockets, and our Air Fryer Biscuit pizza for Friday night pizza nights!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • The pizza dough should be rolled out to about ⅛ inch thick. 
  • It is important to leave the 1 inch border on the dough when making pizza pinwheels. This helps prevent the ingredients from falling out as well as help seal them once they are rolled. 
  • Some cheese may leak out while these pizza rolls are cooking in the air fryer. You can line your Air fryer with parchment paper for easy cleaning if you would like.

  • Add ingredients. This pizza roll recipe is for pepperoni pizza, but feel free to add any additional ingredients that you prefer. 
  • All Air fryers are different sizes and shapes, do not cram your air fryer full of pizza rolls. Cook in batches and be sure that each batch allows for the air to circulate around all the pizza rolls.

Freezer

You can also freeze your pizza rolls as well. Just store them in an airtight freezer-safe bag after they have cooled. These will keep for up to 3 months.
