Well come on up and we’ll take the tour! Now for the pepperoni roll….
The pepperoni roll was "founded" in Fairmont, West Virginia mid 20th century. It’s bare bones basic composition is comprised of pepperoni, either in slices, stick form or even ground up, lots of cheese.(mozzarella, provolone, cheddar, pepper jack or even American being the most prevalent)These are surrounded by a fluffy hot roll dough that bakes up to crusty outside and soft and slightly chewy on the inside. In this form, they are delicious hot or cold. They also keep extremely well, so are often coveted by those who hunt or participate in outdoor activities such as rock climbing, white water rafting etc.
We’ve made many additions since the traditional pepperoni roll was created. Additions include roasted peppers in marinara sauce, hot peppers, banana peppers, and a sort of hotdog chili. Large bakeries have been built here, exclusively distributing these rolls of glory, and are availiable in every grocery or convienence store around here.
They range in size from small dinner size rolls to italian bread size extravaganzas. And every self respecting home cook has a few pepperoni roll recipes under their belt.
