Pizza Rolls

This is my husband's version of store-bought pizza rolls, and our family loves them. Although they take some time to make, they freeze well. So when we're through, we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor for a long time! —Julie Gaines, Normal, Illinois

    This is not a review, can anyone help me with the time and temperature using an air fryer? Thank you so very much.

    These were great. The first batch I made in the air fryer and they turned out hard and unappetizing so the rest I fried. Love that I have some stashed in the freezer.

    Fantastic and I use my air fryer to make them a little healthier.

    Tried for the first time, I liked the combo and crispness of the wrapper when fried, they were a substantial roll so I will try to make smaller versions the next time.i will make them again!

    These were very good and I will be using the recipe frequently. Divided the recipe in half and I couldn't be more pleased!

    These are way better than the store bought (but what isn't?). I tried freezing them after they were fried and they came out soggy. Freezing them before frying works best.

    My kids loved this! They prefer this over the store bought pizza rolls.

    These are great Egg Rolls and a nice change from the traditional Chinese style. The only change I made was cooking minced garlic with the peppers and adding red pepper flakes with the seasoning. I also used I my Air Fryer once rolled instead of deep frying in oil. They turned out fabulous.

    Can't wait to try these. I'll make and freeze then heat in my air fryer

    I have made these hundreds of thousands of times. Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but that's how good they are. Labor intensive at first, but I made these in 2006 for my daughter's 16th birthday party, and they were easy to just pop into my Fry Daddy and have ready to eat for all the guests (many adults attended, and were like little kids all over again). Excellent recipe, and it makes a lot. They freeze very well.
