Air Fryer Pizza Rolls for an Easy Afternoon Snack!
There’s something about pizza rolls that just hit the spot for an afternoon snack. Most of us have probably gone through more pizza rolls when feeding kids and teens — than any other time. I honestly don’t make them often any more. Our kids are grown, but I like to have recipes on hand that work for when we have families from church over to the house.
I tend to think of Pizza Rolls as an after school snack, but let’s face it, kids and teens are ALWAYS eating. This recipe is a good one to have on hand pretty much any time of year. Making them in the Air Fryer is a quick alternative to heating up the oven– and they taste so much better than in the microwave. I do use the Totinos Pizza Rolls in this recipe.
To me, Pizza Rolls right out of the frozen food aisle at the store don’t offer a ton of flavor. They are fine now and then. However, this is one of those store-bought foods you can really improve on with a few simple ingredients. If you’re serving this at a gathering, you might be asked which brand of Pizza Rolls you bought! They are that much better!
How to Make Air Fryer Pizza Rolls that Actually Taste Amazing:
First, in a microwave safe bowl, add your butter, Italian Seasoning, and garlic. If you want you can also add a little extra parsley for flavor. I love parsley but for younger kids it’s something “green” that they may shy away from eating.
Take your pizza rolls straight from the freezer and air fry about 6 minutes. You can turn them over or toss in the air fryer basket after the cooking time is done. Air fry another 1-2 minutes if you like them a little on the crispy side.
Then, toss your uncooked pizza rolls in the mixture gently with a pair of kitchen tongs. Work in small batches that will fit in your air fryer. If you leave them in the mixture too long they can get soggy.
As soon as they are done and while they are still too hot to eat, drop them in a clean mixing bowl and coat with Parmesan. Toss gently to coat with parmesan all the way around.
I use the canned, powdered parmesan for this since it coats very well and doesn’t add too much cheese. Allow them to cool and serve!
You might be surprised at how well these turn out for a party! They look great on a a serving platter— even the adults will be snacking on this appetizer.
I do love this appetizer for a low effort appetizer for football game days. We like to have things everyone can come and graze on –that don’t require worrying about or having to put back in the fridge before too long! You can add a dip to serve with these but it’s honestly not necessary.
They are just fine on their own. If you do want to serve with a dipping sauce, marinara or ranch are both great choices.
View your recipe below! I hope you enjoy this great flavor change up to regular store-bought pizza rolls!
- 12-15 Pizza Rolls
- Parmesan Cheese
- 1/2 Stick of Butter
- 1 tablespoon of minced garlic (or garlic powder)
- 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
Melt butter and mix in garlic and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
Air Fry Pizza rolls at 380 for 6 minutes or if you have the Ninja Foodie bake at 375 for 6 minutes and air crisp for 3 minutes.
Add pizza rolls to a bowl and pour butter mixture over pizza rolls and toss to cover well.
In a separate bowl, Sprinkle parmesan cheese over pizza rolls and toss again to coat.
Serve while hot. Enjoy!
For smaller air fryers, work in smaller batches. Pizza Rolls should not touch each other while air frying, to ensure all are fully cooked. Air fryers may vary, so if pizza rolls are still cold in the center, continue air frying in 1-2 minute increments until fully cooked.
