How to roll a pizza

Once your pizza is assembled, tightly roll the pizza dough lengthwise until it is a long roll, like a cinnamon roll. Then, with a knife  (this is my absolute favorite knife), pizza cutter, or kitchen scraper, cut the log into 8 pieces.

How long should I cook pizza snails in the air fryer?

Place the rolls of pizza in an air fryer basket that is lined with parchment paper. If you are not able to place all 8 rolls in the air fryer basket, then you will need to cook in batches.

The cook time for this recipe is so quick! Cook the pizza rolls in the air fryer at 350˚F/175˚C for 6-8 minutes, or until the crust is golden and cheese is melted. No need to flip the pizza rolls!

Frequently Asked Questions about the Air Fryer

What is air fryer parchment paper?

I love these adorable parchment papers that are made for the air fryer. Air fryer parchment paper comes with holes so that the air can continue to flow in the air fryer basket. This makes it so that your food can still cook properly.

Why should I use parchment paper in the air fryer?

Air fryer parchment paper is great for when you cook foods that are generally more messy. Parchment paper makes it easier to clean up the air fryer basket because you don’t have to scrub the tray to clean it off. Thus, this means your basket or tray will last longer.

What if I don’t have air fryer parchment paper?

If you don’t have air fryer parchment paper, you can spray the air fryer basket with oil. This will hopefully help keep the food from sticking to the basket.

If you have regular parchment paper, you can cut it to be the size of your air fryer basket. Cut holes in it so air can continue to flow as well.

Where do you get air fryer parchment paper?

When you are shopping for air fryer parchment paper, my favorite place to go is Amazon. Just make sure that you select the right size for your air fryer basket.

If you have a Cosori 5.8qt air fryer, I get the 8.5 inch liners.

Can I cook this recipe in the oven?

If you can make a recipe in the air fry, then you can also bake it in the oven, grill it on the grill, or deep fry it on the stove. Unfortunately, there isn’t a hard fast rule for changing air fryer recipes for the oven or visa versa. But generally, if it is an air fryer recipe that you want to cook in the oven, increase the air fryer instructions temperature by 10-25 degrees. Then continue to add more time as needed.
