Wonton/Egg Roll Wrappers: The Secret Ingredient
Okay, before you go calling me crazy for basically making pizza egg rolls, hear me out. Wonton wrappers are the PERFECT crust for this pizza rolls recipe! It's really hard to get pizza dough thin enough and, honestly, look pretty enough to make a good pizza roll. Trust me, I tried! They give you the perfect crispy outside and keep the inside just the gooey pizza goodness. So, no. You won't feel like you're eating a pizza egg roll... unless you think about it hard enough!
Are These Pizza Rolls healthy?
Oh, my favorite question! If you guys know me at all you know about my no food rules approach to nutrition and I'm a huge supporter of intuitive eating. No food is "good" or "bad" and no food is "healthy" or "unhealthy". Any times you put a certain food on a pedestal and kick others to the curb you're probably going to wind up binge eating the "bad" stuff. It's biology. Not a lack of will power.
BUT. I do believe that some foods are more nourishing for the body than other. Some are more nourishing for the mind and soul. These air fryer pizza rolls? They're on the more nourishing for the body said than the typical frozen kind, meaning: your body might feel a little better after these. But if you're craaaaaaving the frozen kind? Throw those frozen pizza rolls in the air fryer! You do you.
How To Make Air Fryer Pizza Rolls
- Lay out a wonton wrapper and on one side (split the longest length in half) place a pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni. (Or swap for whatever fillings you want!!)
- Fold the naked side of the wonton wrapper over the pizza roll fillings and fold the sides over to create a pocket. Be sure to press the sides nice and tight so nothing falls out!
How Long To Cook Pizza Rolls In An Air Fryer
Cook your pizza rolls in the air fryer at 370 degrees for about 10 minutes. Be sure to stop them at the 5 minute mark and flip them over. It'll be roughly the same if you're using frozen pizza rolls in the air fryer!
