Air Fryer Pizza Cannoli


  • 1 package (2 sheets) puff pastry
  • 8 ounces marinara sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, diced into small pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned Panko crumbs


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the puff pastry sheets into equal quarters.
  3. Spread about 1-1/2 tablespoons of marinara sauce in the middle of each puff pastry sheet.
  4. Place about 8-10 pieces of cheese (depending on size) on the marinara sauce.
  5. With the puff pastry pieces positioned like a diamond, fold the right corner over the filling, and then fold the left corner over and wrap it under, forming something that resembles a cannoli.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk the egg and water.
  7. Place the Panko crumbs on a lipped plate.
  8. Brush each pizza cannoli with the egg wash mixture, covering the sides and bottom.
  9. Place the cannolis, one at a time, into the Panko crumbs and cover all sides.
  10. Place the pizza cannolis, two at a time (don’t overcrowd) on a pieced of parchment paper inside the air fryer basket.
  11. Air fry at 400 degrees for about 4-5 minutes.
  12. Carefully turn the cannolis over and air fry an additional 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  13. Remove from the air fryer and allow to cool slightly before serving.
  14. Repeat the process with the remaining cannolis.
