Air fryer frozen pizza rolls are on my list of easy kid-friendly lunches. Use a frozen bag from the supermarket and lunch is served in under 10 minutes!
Pizza rolls are a true delight. Depending on how much effort I’d like to put into dinner or if I even have the time I like to vary it between frozen pizza rolls and my own recipe for air fryer pizza roll-ups that are pretty darn good, too.
I make a double batch and store them in the freezer for whenever I need easy ten-minute lunches. I pop them in the air fryer and have pockets of soft savory cheesy goodness in no time.
How Long to Cook Pizza Rolls in Air Fryer
With most frozen foods, the cooking time won’t differ too much depending on the frozen foods brand or homemade recipe. Pizza rolls might be the exception, though. The filling and the thickness of the roll can call for different cooking times.
Consider this a Totino’s Pizza Rolls air fryer recipe because that is what I based the cooking time on. 5 minutes on both sides at 400 degrees Fahrenheit is what works best with my air fryer model. However, for the homemade version, I mentioned earlier the air fryer time is shorter.

That being said, you can take it to the next level with a delicious dipping sauce for pizza rolls. Homemade sauces are great make-ahead recipes that you can have ready in the fridge to complement so many dishes.
