Air Fryer Pizza Egg Rolls & Wontons

6 Wontons78 cals

This week we’re diving into the healthier pizza business with some high protein Air Fryer Pizza Egg Rolls & Wontons! These are super easy to make and did I mention that we’re finally using an air fryer?!

Start this one by adding into a bowl 3 ounces of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of a pizza blend cheese, and 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning. The type of cream cheese you use is completely up to you and your macros. We used reduced fat today but full or fat free work great too!

Mix those ingredients together until smooth. I like using a hand mixer to speed this up but a simple utensil and some muscle will work just as good!

You could also use ricotta or cottage cheese instead of cream cheese, I’ve used them all with success. I’ll make sure to add the nutritional information using all 3 below in the recipe card.

Next, take out some egg roll or wonton wraps and lay however many air fryer pizza egg rolls & wontons you’re making out. I can usually get 6 wontons or 3 egg rolls with the amounts listed here so if you’d like more or less don’t forget to scale the recipe.

You should also be able to find packs of egg roll or wonton wraps at most grocery stores and the best part? They only cost a couple bucks for a ton of them!

Evenly distribute your mix into each roll or wrap, top your mix with a little pizza sauce, and 1 ounce per pizza egg roll or 1/2 an ounce per pizza wonton or of your choice cooked protein. I went with chicken today but beef or turkey work great too.

Easy Pizza Wontons

It’s time to close your wontons! My preferred method for doing this goes like this (you can see it in the video):

  1. Wet your finger or a brush with a little water.
  2. Wipe whatever you’re using along the edges.
  3. Fold your corners in one side at a time and make sure to squeeze them at the tip while pressing down to remove any air.
  4. Repeat until you have your pizza wontons.

Easy Pizza Egg Rolls

It’s time to close your egg rolls! There’s a couple ways to do this but this is the easiest, in my opinion (there’s another method in the video):

  1. Wet your finger or a brush with a little water.
  2. Wipe whatever you’re using along the edges.
  3. Fold in the corners closest to your filling (they should sit on top of your filling).
  4. Pinch the bottom of those corners down on both sides to seal the ends.
  5. Take one of your untouched corners and pull that “flap” over your filling.
  6. Continue by rolling it forward to fully close it.
  7. Repeat until you have your pizza egg rolls.

Last, coat whatever you’re making with some oil. Non-stick cooking spray makes this super easy.

Put them onto an air fryer rack and let them cook on 365F/185C for around 10-12 minutes depending on what you’re making. I usually flip mine over halfway through cooking but this is optional.

Don’t have an air fryer? Bake them on 325F/162C for 10 minutes, flip them over, and bake them for an additional 10 minutes or until crispy but not burnt. Make sure to coat your baking sheet before putting them on.

Kitchen Hack

Don’t have a vacuum sealer? Keep foods fresh for longer by using a straw to suck the air out of a sealable bag.

If you’re talented enough you could also use your built in one (your mouth) to quickly suck the air out and close.

That’s it and yes, it actually works!

Continue by taking your wraps out after your timer goes off or once they look like this…

I like to dip mine in either some chili or pizza sauce.
