Please pardon my love for good puns. But what I like even more is a deep-fried snack that you can prepare quickly by taking it out of the freezer.
These pizza rolls taste a lot better than the typical store-bought snack! If you have a family member who adores delicious pizza rolls, you may can up the ante with this easy hack. Check out the TikTok Pizza Rolls video that inspired me to create this!
Pizza Rolls as Easy Afternoon Snack
Pizza rolls seem to be the best afternoon snack for some reason. When feeding children and teenagers, the majority of us have likely consumed more pizza rolls than we are willing to admit. They are simple to make, easy to heat up, and delicious!
Pizza Rolls are the best thing, I often associate with an after-school treat, but let’s face it, kids and teenagers ALWAYS eat. Almost all seasons are wonderful times to keep this dish on hand. They cook more quickly in the Air Fryer than in the oven, and they taste much better than if they were cooked in the microwave. This recipe calls for frozen, premade pizza rolls. Although there are other brands, I use Totino’s Pizza Rolls in this quick and easy recipe since I often buy them. Imagine how adding garlic butter, pizza sauce, or parmesan cheese might enhance the taste.
Pizza Rolls from the freezer aisle taste bland to me. They’re fine sometimes. However, a few simple ingredients may enhance this store-bought cuisine. If you serve this at a party, people may question whose Pizza Rolls you purchased!
- Parmesan Cheese
- 12-15 Pizza Rolls (I use Totino’s)
- 1 tbsp. minced garlic (or Garlic Powder)
- 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
- Olive oil
- Pepperoni (personal preference)
- Melt butter before you add garlic and Italian seasoning. Mix.
- Preheat your oven to 380 F or use an air fryer at 380 F for 7-8 minutes.
- Toss pizza rolls with melted butter and seasoning mixture.
- Place pizza rolls on another dish before you sprinkle parmesan cheese over pizza rolls and toss again.
- Serve piping hot!
Best Way to Make Pizza Rolls?
In the first step, combine your butter, Italian seasoning, and minced garlic in a dish that can be used in a microwave (add red pepper flakes if you like yours spicy).
Heat the air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit. With a set of kitchen tongs, carefully toss the uncooked pizza rolls into the melted butter mixture.
Take your frozen pizza rolls out of the freezer and air fried them for 6 minutes in a single layer. Work in smaller batches—not all heaped up—that will fit in your air fryer tray with space between them. They may get mushy if you soak them in the fluid for too long.
Once the frying long time is over, you may flip them or throw them in the air fryer basket if you want them a bit golden brown, air-fried them for an additional one to two minutes.
Once finished and still too hot to handle, place the crispy garlic parmesan pizza rolls in a clean mixing basin and sprinkle with Parmesan. Gently stir in the Parmesan.
I use the powdered Parmesan that comes in a can since it coats beautifully and doesn’t add a lot of cheese; make sure to shake the container thoroughly to break up any big chunks. Serve them when they have cooled.
If you don’t have an air fryer, you could toast them in the oven or toaster oven, but you’d want to add the melted butter after they’ve finished cooking time so they can become crispy first.
Tips for Serving
These could surprise you with how well they work for a party! Even the grownups will be munching on this appetizer since they look so good on a serving plate. Of course, these snacks will be a hit if you have many children in your company.
I like this easy appetizer on days when there is a football game. We like to offer easy foods for guests to graze on and don’t need to be worried about or put back in the fridge immediately.
You may also serve them with an optional dip. These air fryer pizza rolls work well with marinara sauce or a fantastic ranch dressing.
