Pizza Pockets are a calzone-type snack produced by McCain Foods Limited. Like other foods of this type, they are sold cooked but frozen. They can be reheated in a microwave oven, but they may also be cooked in a regular oven.
In Canada, Pizza Pockets are available in "Deluxe", "Pepperoni", "Three Cheese", "Pepperoni & Bacon", "Deli Lovers" and "3X Pepperoni". The most common packaging sizes consist of 4 packs and 12 packs. In Australia "Ham and Pineapple", "Cheese and Bacon", "Meatlovers" and "Supreme" varieties are available. The "3x Pepperoni" consists of mild, medium and hot varieties of Pepperoni. Besides the meat and cheese the Pockets contain a pizza sauce. For a short time in the 1990s a variation of Pizza Pockets existed called Super Pockets, these were essentially sandwich ingredients inside the pocket such as "Ham and Cheese", "Western Omelette" and others.
In an effort to differentiate from other brands, the Pockets are round and the advertising phrase "baked - not fried" was coined.
Its main competitor is Pizza Pops.
