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.

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, pizza topping, and meat. They may also contain vegetables, such as green peppers or mushrooms, and artificial colours and flavours, such as Yellow 5.

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.

In the animated TV series Clarence, Clarence says that he loves his mom for the Pizza Pops she makes for him.
