Are you hosting a party with pizza rolls on the menu?

This guide dishes up 3 foolproof methods for keeping your cheesy bites piping hot, from the slow cooker’s steady heat to the oven’s quick blasts of warmth. 

Whether you’re hosting a casual gathering or a fancy affair, we’ve got the perfect strategy to keep your pizza rolls party perfect all night long! Let’s know about them.

1. Slow Cooker Method (for Small Gatherings, Longer Parties)

Looking for a fuss-free way to keep pizza rolls hot and yummy for your party? The slow cooker is your friend!

Just be sure to serve them up within 2 hours, as any longer can make them soggy or overcooked.

 Here is how you can keep the pizza rolls warm using a slow cooker:

  • Line the crock with a layer of parchment paper or aluminum foil to prevent sticking and make cleanup easier.
  • Switch your slow cooker to the “Warm” or “Low” setting–skip “High” to avoid dryness.
  • Add cooked rolls in a single layer, giving them space to breathe.
  • Keep the lid on the slow cooker to trap the heat and moisture.

Now relax; your yummy bites will stay warm all night, ready for every hungry hand!

Additional Tips

  • Stir occasionally: Every 30-60 minutes, give the rolls a quick stir to keep them evenly heated.
  • Add moisture if needed: If they seem dry, a splash of water or olive oil can perk them up.
  • Smaller is better: A smaller slow cooker maintains a more consistent temperature and prevents drying.
  • Frozen rolls? Preheat! Give the slow cooker a 10-minute warm-up on “Low” with a little water before adding frozen rolls.

2. Oven Method (Medium-sized Parties, Quick Replenishment)

Keeping pizza rolls warm for a party using an oven is great for an oven is a great source of consistent heat.

Here are a couple of methods you can try, each with its own advantages:

1. The Gentle Oven:

This method is ideal for more extended periods, like keeping the rolls warm for an hour or more.

  • Preheat your oven to 200°F (93°C). This low temperature will prevent the rolls from drying out or burning while still keeping them nice and toasty.
  • Place the pizza rolls on a baking sheet or oven-safe dish in a single layer for even heat distribution.
  • Check on the rolls every 15-20 minutes and give them a gentle stir to ensure even heating. They’re good to go as long as they stay warm throughout.

2. The Aluminum Shield:

This method is great for shorter bursts of warmth, like keeping the rolls fresh for 30-45 minutes.

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (204°C). This higher temperature will quickly reheat any cooled-down rolls.
  • Wrap a baking sheet with aluminum foil. This will help trap the heat and prevent the rolls from drying out.
  • Place the pizza rolls on the aluminum foil-covered baking sheet.
  • Bake the rolls for 5-10 minutes, or until they’re heated through.
  • Keep an eye on them, as overcooking at this high temperature can make them tough.

Bonus Tips:

  • To avoid soggy bottoms, put a wire rack on the baking sheet before adding the rolls. This lets air flow and keeps them out of their own juices.
  • Place a small bowl of water in the oven while heating the rolls to add moisture and prevent drying.
  • Rotate the rolls regularly to ensure even heating and avoid overcooking.
  • Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet, as this can prevent the pizza rolls from heating evenly. 

3. Chafing Dish Method (Formal Gatherings, Large Parties)

Chafing dishes are a great way to keep pizza rolls warm and fancy at big parties! But be warned: they can be pricey, need fuel, and you’ll have to keep an eye on moisture levels.

To keep the pizza rolls warm using the chafing dish, follow the simple instructions given below:

  • Let the chafing dish preheat before the party starts, using stereo cans or electric options.
  • Line the dish’s bottom with foil to make cleanup easier. Add a splash of water to prevent dryness.
  • Transfer your cooked pizza rolls to the pan, spreading them evenly. Don’t overcrowd the dish!
  • Replace the fuel or adjust the temperature control to maintain 165°F or above.
  • Let the steam escape to avoid soggy rolls.

With these tips, your chafing dish will become a pizza roll superstar, keeping them warm and chewy all night long!

Bonus Tips:

  • If the rolls seem dry, add a sprinkle of water or a drizzle of oil to the pan.
  • Consider offering small serving spoons or tongs for guests to avoid overcrowding the pan.


Party-perfect pizza rolls all night long! No matter your guest list or vibe, you’ve got the perfect method to keep those cheesy bites warm and irresistible.

From the slow cooker’s gentle hum to the oven’s quick blasts or the chafing dish’s elegant display, embrace the warmth and let the party roll on!
