While cooking homemade meals is desirable and healthy, sometimes time and energy are not available. In these cases, frozen snacks can be helpful. The directions on a box of Totino's Pizza Rolls are useful but other methods of cooking pizza rolls are also available. Depending on the chosen cooking method, the rolls will have different tastes and textures. Since cooking times vary depending on the appliance used, a few attempts may be needed to find your perfect cooking method for Totino’s Pizza Rolls

Set oven temperature to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place pizza rolls on a cookie sheet. Space the rolls one inch apart. Put the cookie sheet in the oven on the middle rack.

Cool for two minutes and serve.

Toaster Oven

Set toaster oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place your pizza rolls on the toaster oven sheet. Space the rolls one inch apart. Put the cookie sheet in the toaster oven on the middle rack.

Deep Fryer

Heat peanut oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
