Wikipedia: Hot Pockets

Wikipedia: Calzone
A calzone (/kælˈzoʊni/, US: /kælˈzoʊneɪ/ UK: /kælˈtsoʊni/; Italian: [kalˈtsoːne], “stocking” or “trouser") is an Italian oven-baked folded pizza that originated in Naples. A typical calzone is made from salted bread dough, baked in an oven and is stuffed with salami, ham or vegetables, mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan or pecorino cheese, as well as an egg. Different regional variations on a calzone can often include other ingredients that are normally associated with pizza toppings.
