Wikipedia: Pizza rolls
Pizza Rolls are a frozen food product created by food industry entrepreneur Jeno Paulucci, who specialized in frozen Chinese food, in 1951. After Jeno’s sold the brand in 1985, it was acquired by Totino’s, with other producers including Amy’s also selling pizza rolls. In 1993, Totino’s rebranded Jeno’s Pizza Rolls as Totino’s Pizza Rolls.

The snacks come in a variety of flavors including Cheese, Combination, Pepperoni, Triple Pepperoni, Sausage, Supreme, Triple Cheese, and Triple Meat.

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.

Oh, the mini-calzone? I wouldn’t call it that.
It was more like a savory pastry.
Delicate little dough pocket filled with tomato sauce, cheese, and seasoned meat.
Just a stunning culinary innovation.
It was a calzone.
It was literally just a small calzone.
