What is pepperoni?
It is a type of salami, made from cured meats like pork and beef. It is usually soft, red in color and has a smoky flavor to it. It gets it’s color and slightly spicy flavor from paprika or other chili peppers.
I don’t think there is a more iconic pizza topping than pepperoni, besides cheese of course. When baked on pizza, it gets deliciously crispy and greasy: just what you want on a pizza!
But aside from pizza, it can be used on so many other things! We like putting ours on a fresh green salad, or even tossing it into a pasta salad. It always tastes great on subs and sandwiches, too! The options are really endless.
