Assemble the Egg Rolls: Lay an egg roll wrapper on a clean, flat surface. Place a spoonful of the pizza filling mixture in the center of the wrapper. Fold in the sides of the wrapper and then roll it up tightly, sealing the edge with a bit of water or beaten egg to keep it closed. For best results, use a pastry brush and a small water dish.

Preheat the Air Fryer: Set your air fryer to 390 degrees F (200°C). It’s important to preheat for 2-3 minutes to ensure the egg rolls cook evenly.

Prepare for Cooking: Lightly spray the air fryer basket with olive oil or nonstick cooking spray. Place the egg rolls in the basket in a single layer, ensuring they don’t touch each other for even cooking. Spray the tops of the egg rolls lightly with olive oil.

Pro Tips For Pizza Egg Roll Air Fryer Recipe

  • Don’t Overfill: Be careful not to overfill the egg rolls. Use only 2 tablespoons of filling.
  • Seal Them Well: You can use a bit of water or a beaten egg to moisten the edges of the wrappers for a secure seal.
  • Even Cooking: Cook in batches if necessary, and make sure the egg rolls aren’t touching each other.
  • Crispy Texture: Lightly spray or brush the egg rolls with olive oil before cooking. Flipping is Key: Halfway through the cooking time, flip the egg rolls to ensure they are evenly cooked and browned on all sides.
  • Customize Fillings: Feel free to get creative with the fillings. Just like pizzas, you can cater to various tastes by adjusting the ingredients.
  • Watch the Temperature: Cook at the right temperature – not too high, as it could burn the wrappers before the inside is hot.
  • Let Them Cool: Allow the egg rolls to cool for a couple of minutes after cooking. They will be very hot inside and this also helps the filling to set a bit.
  • Serve Immediately: These are best served fresh and hot from the air fryer. If you need to keep them warm, place them in an oven at 200 degrees F.
  • Dipping Sauces: Serve with dipping sauces like marinara, ranch, or garlic butter for added flavor.

Air Fryer Pizza Egg Rolls are excellent, with the same great taste as pizza, but served in an egg roll.


  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • 6 ounces Pepperoni, diced
  • 8 ounces Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
  • 2-3 tablespoons Water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tablespoon parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Pizza/Marinara sauce, for dipping, optional but highly recommended


  • Separate the egg roll wrappers and layer 4-5 pieces of pepperoni and some mozzarella cheese in the middle of each wrapper, leaving a little bit of space around all the sides (be careful not to overfill so you can still roll the wrapper without the pepperoni and cheese falling out).
  • Fill a small bowl with water and dip your finger in water and then run around the edges of the wrapper.
  • Fold the bottom corner of the egg roll up, then fold in the two sides.
  • Next, roll as tightly as you can and seal the egg roll shut with the last corner.
  • Repeat with all of the egg rolls.
  • Coat the inside of the air fryer with cooking spray and place a single layer of pizza rolls inside.
  • Spray the tops of the pizza rolls with cooking spray and then air fry for 10-12 minutes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • While they are cooking, combine the butter, parsley, salt, and ground black pepper in a large bowl.
  • Once the pizza rolls are cooked, coat the rolls with the garlic butter mixture (I just use a spatula to smear the butter across the tops and let it melt).
  • Serve with a side of pizza sauce to dip in and enjoy!
