Wikipedia: Pierogi
Pierogi (/pɪˈroʊɡi/ pih-ROH-ghee) are filled dumplings made by wrapping unleavened dough around a savoury or sweet filling and cooking in boiling water. They are often then pan-fried before serving.

Wikipedia: Jiaozi
Jiaozi (Chinese: 餃子; [tɕjàu.tsɨ]) are Chinese dumplings commonly eaten in China and other parts of East Asia.
(...)
The prevalent differences between Japanese-style gyōza and Chinese-style jiaozi are the rich garlic flavor, which is less noticeable in the Chinese version, and that gyōza wrappers tend to be thinner, due to the fact that most Japanese restaurants use machine-made wrappers.
