What ingredients are needed to make TikTok Pizza Roses in the Air Fryer?
- crescent roll dough, uncut – Find the rolls of uncut crescent roll dough. If you can only find the cut roll version, just pinch the triangles back together.
- pizza sauce – My personal preference is crushed tomatoes with some minced garlic and olive oil added. But, I have often used spaghetti sauce when it’s all I have.
- mozzarella cheese slices – try to find the square size and not the round ones. Provolone works well, too.
- pepperoni slices
- parmesan cheese as the final topper
How do you make TikTok Pizza Roses in the Air Fryer?
Preheat your air fryer to 375 F degrees. If you don’t have a preheat function, just turn it on for 3-5 minutes.
Cut each slice of mozzarella cheese into three rectangles.
Lightly flour a flat surface such as a cutting board, baking sheet, or even the counter top.
If you’re using the uncut crescent roll dough, just use a pizza cutter to slice it into 8 rectangles.
However, if you only have the precut crescent roll dough, take 2 crescent roll triangles and pinch together the perforated edges to form a rectangle.
Then, take the pizza cutter and cut the rectangle in half, length wise.
Next, add a thin layer of sauce to the crescent dough.
Top the sauce with 2 of the cut slices of cheese.
Take the pepperoni and place it on top of the cheese, overlapping the pepperonis, on just the top half off the crescent.
Fold up the bottom of the crescent roll dough to meet the top half of the crescent dough.
Roll your crescent from left to right to form a rose.
Place each pizza roll in a cupcake pan or silicone mold, depending on the size of your air fryer. If you have a huge air fryer, you could probably use an entire cupcake pan, but with a smaller one, you’ll need to use individual silicone cupcake molds to hold the pizza roses as they cook.
With your air fryer preheated, cook for 8 minutes, until the tops of the crescent roll dough is golden brown.
Remove the pizza roses from the air fryer and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Serve the TikTok Pizza Roses warm with dipping sauces such as garlic butter, pizza sauce, marinara or crushed tomatoes mixed with garlic and olive oil.
