Pizza Rolls are a frozen food product created by food industry entrepreneur Jeno Paulucci, who specialized in frozen Chinese food, in 1951.[1] After Jeno's sold the brand in 1985, it was acquired by Pillsbury which owned Totino's pizza.[2] In 1993, Jeno's Pizza Rolls were rebranded as Totino's Pizza Rolls.[3]

The snacks come in a variety of flavors including Cheese, Combination, Pepperoni, Triple Pepperoni, Sausage, Supreme, Triple Cheese, and Triple Meat.[4]

Thanks to a series of commercial spoofs on Saturday Night Live, Totino's have seen a boost in popularity and sales with their pizza rolls.[5]
