Ok so we are like every other American family and LOVE anything pizza. Now we are adding these pizza egg rolls to our list of favorite meals too! Here is how you make them, so easy! (originally posted 2/16, affiliate links present)

Pepperoni Pizza Egg Rolls

We started this experiment with muffin tin pizzas, pizza in the crockpot, and air fryer frozen pizza rolls. Those were amazing. It was on to this one now. You can fry them in a pan with some oil or just spray with a bit and “fry” them in your air fryer or Ninja Foodi too.

I love anything with lots of cheese! Anything easy that my kids can pick up and dunk into a sauce is a real winner in our house. Making pizza into egg rolls gets 5 thumbs up here. 😉 Get out all your favorite toppings and a jar of your favorite sauce and I’ll show you how to make them y’all.

Pizza egg rolls!!

You can really stuff just about anything into egg roll or wonton wrappers you just have to think outside of the box a bit.

Literally you could make a batch of ground beef with a can of Manwich to make a fun filling. Then use that with a little cheese if you want that and wrap it up to create a few yummy sloppy joe egg rolls. Let me tell you that kids just love these. Still drippy and messy but without all the thick carbs wrapped around the meat.

I explain both methods below but if you’re using a Cosori you’ll want to follow a few steps to get the wrapper to cook and crisp up while melting the ingredients inside.

  1. Preheat to 380 for 5 minutes
  2. Prepare rolls and spray inside with oil
  3. Lay inside and generously spray the top of your rolls with olive oil
  4. Air fry for a total of about 5 minutes, flip over halfway thru and spray tops again at that time until golden brown

How to make pizza egg rolls.

Cheese Pizza Egg Rolls

Start with a package of egg roll wrappers, spaghetti sauce, string cheese and any toppings you like on (or in) your pizza egg rolls. We used olives and pepperoni, sometimes just cheese for my little one. If you have picky eaters you don’t have to add a lot of things.

Just the sauce and cheese works just fine as well. You’ll want to have some sauce left over so you can use that as a dip at the end. Kinda’ like serving mozzarella sticks in a sense. Some might like some Ranch dressing like you would with pizza crust instead.

Unique Egg Rolls Fillings

You can use mini pepperonis too but I couldn’t find those at the store this time. Spread a bit of sauce, pepperonis on top of that and cheese.

Now leave a bit of room at the bottom of your wrapper and fold the sides in like a burrito as in picture 2. Then roll your wrapper over your cheese and keep rolling until you near the end.

Now use a cup of water. Dip your finger in and on the edge of your egg roll wrapper, then roll the rest over to make it stick together.

Then get your oil ready. Before putting your pizza egg rolls in tear off a piece of egg roll wrapper and put it in the oil to see if it is ready to fry or if it cooks too quickly and burns then turn the oil down and then test again. You want it to be cooked to a golden brown but not burned.

Some are fatter than others, just depends on what toppings you include, but just pair them with spaghetti sauce and you’re done. Really easy to put together and surely your whole family will love these pizza egg rolls?

You can find everything at the grocery store.

  1. Won ton wrappers – in fridge section near cheese at the store
  2. String cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese
  3. 1/2 cup to 1 full cup of Pepperoni – but I don’t really measure
  4. Spaghetti sauce
  5. Olives are good too
  6. 1/4 cup water is used to secure open end of papers so it doesn’t come apart

You could sprinkle in some Italian seasoning too if you wanted.

Pizza Egg Roll Recipe

If you do not want to submerge in vegetable oil and make these in a healthier way, prepare and then follow our air fryer egg rolls recipes. You just need a bit of olive oil cooking spray for this method.

  1. On a cutting board lay an egg roll wrapper down. Spoon in a tbsp of sauce in the middle leaving 1″ on each side empty.
  2. Add cheese on top of sauce and any toppings.
  3. Fold sides of egg roll wrapper in, then roll up. Wet finger and wipe water on edge of wrapper and seal closed.
  4. Once they are all ready to be fried add oil to pan on med. high heat.
    When the oil is hot, test with a pinch of wrapper into oil. If it immediately fries then it is ready.
  5. Put filled rolls into oil and leave for 1-2 minutes on each side so they are browned nicely.
  6. Lay on paper towels when done so it can absorb oil.

Just one of our favorite quick and easy recipes using egg roll wrappers. You can make them savory like this one or sweet as well. There isn’t anything you can’t add inside to make these yummy.

Where'd the video go? It says pizza rolls but no recipe shown. :-(

Can I cook these in a Ninja Foodi on air crisp, with similar timing to your regular egg rolls?

Later edit: Yes, you can do these like a regular egg roll. They brown up nicely and taste just fine. My wife doesn't eat a lot of her crust, so this is a much easier way for her to enjoy pizza.
