Jung and Kimchi discuss where to put Kim’s former refrigerator in their apartment. Jung reasons, “When I come to the groceries, I don’t want to wander everywhere. I want to go to a dry area, a cool area, a good area.” Kimchee said, “Okay, check it out. I’m sitting here, watching the match and… oh, oh, I want a pizza pop. Come in, get one, and you don’t miss a thing.” Jung replied, “Are you going to eat it frozen?” Without missing a beat, Kimchee replied excitedly, “We’re going to need a microwave here.”

Panzorotti pizza balls are like mini panzerote or small calzones filled with pizza ingredients. Commercially made pops are cooked and frozen when purchased. They are usually heated in the microwave although the oven can also be used. Paul Faraci invented this unique Canadian snack in 1964 after he influenced a customer to try panzerotti (a savory pastry or spin that resembles a mini calzone; the singular form is panzerotto, and the plural is panzerotti).

Varassi noted that the panzarotto “wasn’t anything fancy. The crust was very thick, there was very little sauce, and very little flavor.” Inspiration, Faraci experimented with the recipe for years before successfully selling it in stores. He joined some business partners who eventually bought it in 1980 and sold the company to the Pillsbury brand of General Mills.

Pillsbury’s Pizza Pops collection includes Hawaiian Pizza Pops, Deluxe, Three Meat, Three Cheese, Pepperoni, Pepperoni, Bacon, and Bacon Mac and Cheese Special Edition, among other items (Poutine was served in the past; see No. 12). According to General Mills, pizza pops are “the best-selling snack food in Canada.”
