I enjoy preparing a batch of pizza rolls in my air fryer on a leisurely weekend afternoon. These delightful little treats are wrapped in a rich tomato sauce and silky cheese, with a golden, crispy exterior that gives way to a tender bite.

Air Fryer Pizza Rolls

I like to make the dough by myself and tweak the filling to my liking. Sometimes, I add freshly chopped basil or a sprinkle of garlic powder. These give it a fresh aroma and depth of flavor.

Other times, I sprinkle some red pepper flakes for a bit of heat. The peppers’ spiciness and the cheese’s smoothness create an exciting contrast. Every batch of pizza rolls is a little different, so it never gets boring.

Instructions

Making pizza rolls in an air fryer is a quick and easy way to enjoy a delicious snack or meal. Follow these simple steps to create your own homemade pizza rolls that are crispy on the outside and filled with cheesy goodness.

Time needed: 1 hour and 12 minutes

  1. Prepare the Sauce

    In a small bowl, combine the pizza sauce and minced garlic. Mix well and set aside. This will add a flavorful kick to your pizza rolls.

  2. Roll Out the Dough

    Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Roll out the pizza dough (or puff pastry) into a large square. Make sure it’s even and thin enough for rolling. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into smaller squares, about 3 inches on each side. Place each square on a lined baking sheet to keep them from sticking.

  3. Add the Fillings

    Top each dough square with a spoonful of the pizza sauce mixture. Add a few slices of pepperoni and a generous sprinkle of shredded cheese on top. Feel free to customize your fillings with other ingredients like mushrooms, bell peppers, or olives.

  4. Seal the Rolls

    To seal the pizza rolls, wet the outside edges of the dough with water by running a wet finger around all edges. Fold one corner of the dough up to the center of the filling. Then, fold the two corners on the left and right into the center. Finally, fold the top corner down, completely enclosing the filling. Press the edges lightly with your finger to seal, or use a fork to crimp the edges for a decorative touch.

  5. Prepare the Air Fryer

    Remove the tray from the Typhur Dome air fryer. Line the bottom of the basket with a layer of parchment paper. This will prevent the pizza rolls from sticking and make cleanup easier.

  6. Cook the Pizza Rolls

    Carefully place the pizza rolls on the cooking tray, making sure they are not touching each other. Return the tray to the air fryer. Set the air fryer to 375°F (190°C) and cook the pizza rolls for 12 minutes. Check halfway through cooking to ensure they are browning evenly. If needed, rotate the rolls for even cooking.

  7. Serve and Enjoy

    Once the pizza rolls are golden brown and crispy, remove them from the tray. Let them cool for a few minutes before serving, as the filling will be hot. Serve with extra pizza sauce or marinara for dipping. Enjoy your homemade pizza rolls straight from the air fryer!

These pizza rolls are perfect for a quick lunch, snack, or even a party appetizer. The Typhur Dome air fryer makes the process easy and ensures your pizza rolls come out perfectly every time.
