How to Deep-Fry Totino’s Pizza Rolls
Resident fry-king, Stacey Little, tests out a new way to cook the classic party-time snack.
As the self-professed king of the fryer, there was no hesitation when the folks from Betty Crocker asked me about deep-frying something. I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical when I heard my mission was to fry up Totino’s new Bold pizza rolls, but of course, I jumped at the chance. What I found was that this quick and easy snack is absolutely ideal for deep-frying. It even left me wondering why I hadn’t come up with this idea myself! The pizza rolls cook up with a crispy crunch that you just don’t get with the traditional methods of heating them in the oven and microwave.
To start, pour two to three inches of vegetable oil in the bottom of a two-quart heavy saucepan or Dutch oven. (You can also do this in a deep fryer, if you have one.) Heat the oil until it reaches 375° F.
