Air Frying Frozen Pizza Rolls
This post is VERY unlike any of the others you will find on the site.
But one of my New Year’s resolutions, and part of my divorce transformation, has been to be real.

The best part about this cooking process is it saves time and the results are crispy and delicious. In fact, this is the only way I make delicious pizza rolls now.

- Pizza rolls. That’s it! Opt for Totino’s if available, though you might choose different brands or a healthier variety. You can get pepperoni, combination, cheese, or even supreme. You’ll find these in the frozen food aisle.
How to Air Fry Pizza Rolls
The basic steps for making air fryer pizza rolls are simple to follow:
Preheat the Air Fryer
First, preheat the air fryer to 380℉. Allow it to warm up for at least 3 minutes.
This step is actually really important. Similar to the oven, you want a hot air fryer before adding the food.
Spray the grate with cooking spray if you want.
Then, get your bag of pizza rolls out of the freezer and open it.
Air Fry the Pizza Rolls
Place the pizza rolls in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Be sure none of them are touching.
Depending on the size of the basket, you can likely fit up to 25 pieces at a time.
Cook the pizza rolls for 7 to 8 minutes, being sure to give the basket a good shake halfway through.
The cook time will vary depending on the size of your air fryer, so pay attention. They are done when they’re golden brown.
Let Cool and Enjoy
If you’ve ever enjoyed these pockets before, you KNOW they will be hot when they come out.
To save your lips and tongue from burns from the gooey cheese, allow the pizza bites to sit for a few minutes before digging in.
Serve these up with some marinara sauce, ranch dressing, buffalo wing sauce, or your favorite dipping sauce.
Meal Prep and Storage
- How to store: If there are leftover pizza rolls, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days.
- How to reheat: For best results place them back in the air fryer at 325℉ for 4 to 5 minutes. Or, use the microwave. However, they will come out soggy.
Are Totino’s pizza rolls hot?
Yes! After baking these easy pizza rolls in the oven or air fryer, they will come out very hot. Even if the outsides don’t feel excessively hot, the inside will be more than warmed. Be sure to allow the pockets plenty of time to cool.
