I’ve made a lot of frozen pizza rolls in my day, friends. With 3 kids, I feel like it’s inevitable. Not the healthiest of snacks but surely one of the most tasty, EASY frozen snacks out there to feed a crowd! For years, I turned on the oven (which I hated in the summer!) just to make a few pizza rolls. Or the kids would microwave them and they’d always be soft and not crispy.

Enter my Cosori 12 in 1 Air Fryer! Game changer! Not only is it FASTER, I don’t have to turn on the entire oven for 10 pizza rolls! Plus, the air fryer makes the pizza rolls perfectly crispy, every single time! Air fried pizza rolls are the only way to go, peeps!

  • Be sure to spread pizza rolls in an even layer for maximum crispiness and quicker cooking.
