Ingredients

1 package of refrigerated pizza dough OR

    Homemade Pizza Dough

    • cups white bread flour
    • ¾ cup warmed soy milk or oat milk
    • ½ tbsp instant yeast
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 tbsp sea salt

    Filling

    • 1 cup pizza sauce
    • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese grated
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • basil for garnish

    Optional Toppings

    • zucchini
    • bell peppers
    • red onions
    • olives
    • fresh mushrooms

    Instructions

    Making the Dough:

    • In a large mixing bowl whisk together white bread flour and salt. Set aside. 
    • In a small bowl, combine water, yeast and olive oil. Whisk to dissolve and pour it into the flour mixture.
    • Stir well to combine. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and knead with your hands until the dough is smooth, about 3-5 minutes.
    • Spray a big bowl with cooking spray and place the dough into the bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel. Allow the dough to rest for 1- 1 ½ hour in a warm place, until doubled in size.

    Making the Pizza Rolls

    • Preheat the air fryer to 400F.
    • Transfer pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface and flatten into a rectangle shape. 
    • Spread pizza sauce on top and add mozzarella and parmesan evenly on top. 
    • Roll up the dough tightly lengthwise into a log carefully. Cut the rolled pizza dough into 12 even pieces using a sharp knife. 
    • Place in the Air Fryer Basket and brush with olive oil for a crispier crust (optional). Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Serve with fresh basil and extra cheese on top!

    Notes

    • Make sure to give the homemade pizza dough enough time to rest and rise.
    • Use bread flour for a chewy dough texture.
    • Brush the dough with olive oil for a crispy brown crust.
    • Different brands of air fryers will have slightly varied cook times and bake temperatures, so be sure to adjust according to your air fryer model.
    • Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Freeze in a ziplock bag for 2 months.
    • When ready to  reheat, transfer to the refrigerator to thaw. Then reheat in the air fryer or the oven at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.
