Air Fryer Pizza Egg Rolls Ingredients

All you need are a few simple ingredients to make Air Fryer Pizza Egg Rolls:

EGG ROLL WRAPPERS: Instead of pizza dough, this recipe uses egg roll wrappers to create a crispy outside crust. You can typically find egg roll wrappers in the fruits and vegetable section of the grocery store where they are kept cold.

MOZZARELLA CHEESE: Use a fresh mozzarella log shredded in a food process for the best flavor or you can use your favorite brand of shredded mozzarella.

PEPPERONI: Use precooked slices of pepperoni. These are usually found in the pre-packaged cheese and deli meat area in the grocery store. If you’re using mini pepperoni slices, you’ll need approximately 3-4 per air fryer pizza egg roll.

OLIVE OIL COOKING SPRAY: A little bit of non-stick oil sprayed on the crust of these air fryer pepperoni pizza egg rolls makes them crisp up in the air fryer.

PIZZA SAUCE: Serve with a bowl of pizza sauce or marinara sauce for dipping. I use store bought pizza sauce, but if you are looking for a homemade version, this homemade pizza sauce is amazing.

WATER: You’ll need a small bowl of water to dip your finger in to wet the edges and top of the wrapper. This will seal the wrapper closed before air frying these homemade pizza rolls.

Variations / Substitutions

Here are a few items you can swap out in this air fryer pizza egg rolls recipe.

Turkey Pepperoni: you can easily substitute regular pepperoni with turkey pepperoni. It’s healthier and tastes amazing. I’ve actually come to prefer it because it’s less greasy.

Oil: if you don’t have olive oil spray, you can brush on a small amount of oil on top of the pepperoni pizza rolls. It’s such a small amount, used just to create a the crispiness, you can also use other oils such as vegetable oil.

Mozzarella Cheese: If you’re in a pinch, you can use mozzarella cheese sticks. If you have mozzarella string cheese in the fridge, simply cut it in half and substitute it for freshly grated mozzarella.

Directions

STEP 1: If you are using a fresh mozzarella log,  crumble it in  you food processor.

STEP 2: Place an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface. A cutting board works perfectly. Place it so it’s in the shape of a diamond (not a square) when you’re looking at it.

STEP 3: Add 1 tablespoon of mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce.

STEP 4: Place a slice of large pepperoni on top. Or two, if two want more! If you’re using mini pepperoni, place 3-4 slices on top of the cheese. You want to taste the pepperoni in these Air Fryer Pizza Egg Rolls! So if you add a little more, that’s fine.

STEP 5: Dab all four edges of the egg roll wrapper with water. This will help seal the wrapper closed as you fold edges.

STEP 6: To fold the wrapper, start by folding in the right side and and then the left side. The corners should overlap.

STEP 7: Fold up the bottom corner and roll the wrapper closed. Dab water to on that last top corner of the fold to seal the wrapper closed.

STEP 8: Place pizza egg rolls in the bottom of the air fryer basket in a single layer.

The size of your air fryer basket will determine how many pepperoni pizza egg rolls you can cook at one time. You may need to cook two batches.

STEP 9: Spray pepperoni pizza egg rolls with olive oil. If you don’t have spray, you can use a pastry brush to lightly coat with olive oil.

STEP 10: Preheat the air fry to 350 degrees F. Preheating takes approximately 2 minutes for most air fryers (see your instruction manual for your specific model). Then air fry the pizza egg rolls for 4 minutes.

STEP 11: Flip each pizza egg roll and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown.

STEP 12: Let slightly cool and serve immediately with the extra pizza sauce (warmed) or marinara sauce for dipping.

Can I use Wonton Wrappers Instead of Egg Roll Wrappers?

Not for this recipe. Wonton wrappers are a little too small for air fryer pizza egg rolls. They aren’t able to hold enough ingredients to make it worth the time and effort!

Plus, a wonton wrapper is difficult to fold into an egg roll shape because of their small size.

How to Store Air Fryer Pepperoni Pizza Egg Rolls

Storing air fryer pizza egg rolls is simple. Place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They’ll be good for 3-4 days.

To crisp them back up, make sure to follow the directions above for reheating them in the air fryer.

How to Reheat Air Fryer Pizza Egg Rolls

It takes just a handful of minutes to re-heat these air fryer pizza egg rolls. Place egg rolls in the air fryer in a single layer and heat for 2-4 minutes on 320 degrees F.

If you are re-heating batches, the second batch of pizza egg rolls will take less time because the air fryer is already heated.

Every air fryer cooks a little differently, so go ahead and check them after a few minutes. If they are not heated all the way through, flip them over and continue cooking for another minute.
