Can You Reheat Pizza Rolls? What To Know Before Doing It

Pizza rolls are delicious, and you can get trapped to warm up more than you can eat, so the next question is, can you reheat pizza rolls?

Pizza rolls can be homemade or frozen, but I would guess that most people searching for ways to reheat pizza rolls are interested in frozen ones. So I will talk more about those. Anyway, the reheating process should not be that different.

When you are hungry, you don’t think twice about how many pizza rolls you should warm up, so it happens that you heat up an entire pack that can be too big sometimes.

The taste and texture will be very different with each reheating method you choose so let’s get to the best way to reheat them.

Can you reheat pizza rolls?

Yes, you can reheat pizza rolls. The best way to do that is to place them on a baking sheet, heat up the oven to 400 F, and put them in for about 10 minutes, depending on how many you have to reheat.

You can use a toaster oven as well. The only difference is how many of them you can reheat at once.

Before reheating pizza rolls, it is important that you don’t let them outside of the fridge for more than 2 hours because the bad bacteria can grow inside.

Also, the way you warmed them up in the first place is very important. You should warm them up in the oven for the first time as well. This way, you make sure they keep their crispy texture. If you warm them up in the microwave, they can get a bit softer if you cover them, and if you don’t cover them, they will dry really fast.

Three more ways to reheat pizza rolls

There are other ways to reheat pizza rolls, and in some situations may be the best ones. For example, if you are at work, you have little to no chance of having an oven ready to use and a big enough break to wait for them to heat up.

So let’s see what the other methods of reheating pizza rolls are.

-Microwave. Obviously, this is the best way to reheat them or to warm them in the first place if you are at work or in a hurry.

This method takes only one or two minutes, depending on how many you want to reheat or how well the microwave works. It is better to check them after one minute anyway. 

Be careful that the inside will be way hotter than the outside since it has wet ingredients, and the microwave will heat them up much faster than the dry ingredients.

-Airfryer. This is a good way of reheating a bit faster than the oven and ensures a good enough texture and taste. Depending on your preferences, you can use the air fryer with a bit of oil or without any oil at all.

-Stovetop. You can fry them in a bit of oil using a cast-iron skillet. This method adds extra oil to them, which is not the best, but the taste and texture will be good enough. With this method, the problem is that you have to be there for the entire time and flip them from one side to another to make sure they don’t get burned too much on one side.

How long can pizza rolls last?

Pizza rolls can last for more than one year in the freezer, but the taste and texture can suffer a bit if you keep them too much. I would not recommend consuming them after more than four months if you want the best out of them.

After you warm them, you can let the ones you didn’t eat cool completely and place them in an air-tight container in the fridge. This way, they can last up to 5 days.

Make sure you don’t keep them outside for more than 4 hours because the bad bacteria can grow inside them, and while it is not visible, they are not good anymore.

How much time you can store them can be influenced by the method you used to heat them up in the first place and how much time you let them thaw or sit outside.

You should check them not to smell weird or have a mushy texture before eating them the second time.

Make sure you store the leftovers properly before thinking of reheating them because if you do this wrong, you can end up with food poisoning.
