Are Pizza Rolls Better in the Air Fryer or Microwave?

Pizza rolls in the air fryer are crispier, less likely to leak, and easier to cook in larger batches. The microwave is the faster method, particularly for a single serving. So, if pizza rolls are better in the air fryer or microwave depends on your preference for texture, quantity, and cooking time.

When it comes to large batches (24 or more rolls) then the cooking time is actually equivalent between the two, so in this instance the air fryer is better overall.

You can stack pizza rolls in an air fryer, but for best results keep it to a single layer and cook in batches.

Stacking reduces air circulation, so cooking takes longer and ends up being less even, resulting in cold spots.

Yes, you can put foil in the air fryer for pizza rolls. Just make sure to not block all of the available vent holes, which would in turn prevent air circulation and affect cooking.

Adding foil can help to make cleanup easier, as pizza rolls commonly split open during cooking, regardless of cooking method.
