What Are Pizza Rolls?

Pizza rolls are exactly as the name suggests, pizza rolled up – also known as pizza pinwheels. 

What You Need

ingredients for pizza rolls laid out on a grey background: grated mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, Greek yoghurt and self raising flour

These pizza rolls use the same basic 2 ingredient recipe for the dough as this air fryer pizza recipe. At a very basic level the only ingredients you need are;

  • Yoghurt – I used 240g of plain Greek yoghurt
  • Flour – I used 350g of self-raising flour
  • Pizza sauce – you can use a jar of pizza sauce, or passata. I used a 200g jar of tomato and herb pizza sauce.
  • Cheese – I used grated mozzarella, about 150g – 200g. Enough to cover the sauce.
  • Herbs – I used 1 tsp dried mixed herbs that I sprinkled over the top of the pizza rolls before air frying.
  • Optional extras – you can add some extras to your pizza rolls such as chopped peppers, pepperoni etc.
  • Air fryer liner – I used a silicone air fryer liner, you could use baking paper instead, or lightly oil the base of the basket to prevent any potential sticking.

You could make this recipe even simpler and buy some premade pizza dough.

Making Them

If you are making your own pizza dough you need to make that first. All you need to do is mix togehter some yoghurt and self raising flour mixed. So easy!

Mix the yoghurt and flour together until a dough has formed. If the mixture is too dry add a little water, or if it is too ‘wet,’ add some more flour.

Next, on a lightly floured surface, you’ll need to roll out the dough into a rectangle.

Spread the passata or pizza sauce evenly across it. Then, sprinkle the grated cheese over the sauce and add in any toppings you like – or keep it as is.

 The next step can be pretty messy, depending on the consistency of your pizza sauce.

If it is quite runny then it may well run off the edge so be prepared for some messy fingers!

You are going to be rolling the dough length wise into a ‘roll.’ Once the pizza is rolled up you need to slice the roll up.

Make sure you use a sharp knife, or even a serrated edged knife, to get a clean cut without needing to squash the pizza roll down too much.

Once the roll has been sliced up you need to carefully transfer them to the air fryer basket. I prefer to put mine on a perforated baking liner, I used a silicone one. You can also use some baking paper.

You can place them directly on the air fryer basket but you might want to brush a little oil over it to stop it from potentially sticking.

Set the air fryer off at 180°C for 10 minutes. Check on them at 7 minutes to see how well they are cooking and adjust the time if needed. When they are ready the cheese should be melted and the dough browned.

Air Fryer Pizza Rolls

Yield: 14 pizza rolls
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes

Do you love pizza? How about trying a rolled up pizza? I love pizza, and I really love the simplicity of this air fryer pizza roll recipe.


  • 240g natural/Greek yoghurt
  • 350g self raising flour
  • 200g passata/pizza sauce (or enough to cover the dough)
  • 150g grated cheese (your favourite, I like to use Mozzarella)
  • 1tsp dried herbs (optional)


  1. In a bowl, mix together the flour and yoghurt until a dough is formed. If the mixture is too wet and sticky, add in some more flour. If it is too dry, add in a little water. You need to be able to roll out the dough without it sticking or falling about.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface roll out the dough into a rectangle.
  3. Spread the pizza sauce/passata across the dough. You can use your favourite pizza sauce, or just some regular pasta sauce. Be careful it isn't too runny though or it will just run off the dough.
  4. Sprinkle your grated cheese over the tomato sauce and add your favourite toppings.
  5. Carefully roll the pizza over lengthwise until it is in a sausage shape.
  6. Using a sharp knife, or a serrated knife, slice the pizza roll up into even slices.
  7. Carefully place the pizza rolls in the air fryer basket. You might need to use a spatula to transfer them. I used a silicone baking liner but you can use baking paper or brush a little oil on your air fryer basket and add them direct.
  8. Cook at 180°C for about 10 minutes. Check on them at 7 minutes and adjust the cooking time if needed. The pizza rolls are ready when the cheese has melted and the pizza dough has turned a golden colour.


If you don't want to make your own pizza dough you can use ready made pizza dough instead.

I have a Ninja Dual Zone, so a lot of the Recipes made in the bigger Air Fryers I can’t use due to size😕 Any recipes available from anyone would really help Many thanks, I love your Pitza recipe. Haven’t tried it yet, but going to make the big batch and then freeze half and then make up the Toppings. Really clever. Michele
