Template:Primary source Template:Nutritional value Pizza Pops are a calzone-type snack produced by Pillsbury brand of General Mills. Pizza Pops are sold pre-cooked and frozen. Typically they are reheated in a microwave oven but they may also be cooked in a regular oven. Contrary to the shape of the round Pizza Pocket, Pizza Pops are shaped more like a traditional calzone, that of a half-moon with crimped edges. Pizza Pops come in a variety of packaging options, ranging from 4,8,12, and the family size 24 pack.

They come in several varieties such as "Hawaiian," "Three Meat," "Pepperoni," "Pepperoni & Bacon," "Deluxe," "Cheese Burger," "Canadian," and "Three Cheese." All varieties of Pops, except for the three cheese, contain pizza sauce, cheese, and meat. They may also contain vegetables such as green peppers or mushrooms.

Pizza Pops are available only in Canada. Chili Pops and Veggie Pops were introduced at the same time in the 1980s, but were discontinued within a few years. Chili Pops were reintroduced along with the introduction of Fajita Pops in the 1990s, but both were discontinued as well within a few years.

Pizza Pops contain 0.3 grams of trans-fat per serving.

Pizza Pops come fully cooked and need to be reheated using a conventional microwave oven. The item is sealed in a packet, and needs to be removed from its plastic wrapping and placed on a microwave safe dish lined with paper towel. For best results, cook on medium-high level for 2 minutes.
