Alright, as strange as this thread sounds, has anyone out side of West Virginia ever heard of a pepperoni roll???

BTW: for you foreigners it is sliced pepperoni inside a roll of bread, sometimes has cheese inside it, best damn snack ever invented.  You can't go to a gas station in West Virginia and not find them.

Just wanting to see how many poeple know what the hell i'm talking about.  I have never seen them outside of this state, so I'm thinking it's a WV thing.....

you can pretty much find them everywhere in the US.

We usually call it a calzone, and it can be filled with a lot of different meats and cheeses.

Yes, and No it is not Stromboli, there is no Sauce in a Pepperoni roll
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 4:59:04 PM EST
There's one place here that I know of that sells them (Southeast Michigan), an old bakery/pizza joint. I've been going there for 25 years. They make them fresh when you order one.



It's been a few months since I had one, I think I'll go there tomorrow!
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 4:59:45 PM EST
yeah, a catering company I used to work for had them as an appetizer option. I know the owners were from Maryland if that helps.

Theres not always sauce in a Stromboli, you may be thinking of a Sausage Roll.

<<<< Third generation Sicilian, we're known for rolling shit in bread.

Yep! Everyone I have ever had was horrible. Don't even try them anymore. They always seem to be alot of bread, little cheese and pepperoni. Nothing like stromboli or pizza.
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:00:48 PM EST
I've heard of them and think that they are great.

Hot roll mix with pepperoni inside, then baked.

NO CHEESE

Not a calzone, or stromboli... totally different.  Not like a pizza option of any kind.  Just think of a dinner roll with a few pieces of pepperoni in it.  About the size of your fist.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm.... Pepperoni Rolls!
I have relatives in Fairmont. Used to go for a week or so every summer when I was a kid. Really beautiful place...... brings back lots of memories!
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:05:51 PM EST
yup
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:05:58 PM EST
When I clicked on your thread I thought, Who hasn't heard of these?Then I read & saw where you are from.They are good to carry in your pocket when you are hunting.
Used to see them only in WV, but now they can be found lots more places. I work out of state & get around a bit.
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:06:20 PM EST
Now we're on the right track..... yes, alot of bread little peperoni/cheese.  That's why it's such a good snack, fills you up!

Invented in Fairmont WV I believe, by some Italians.

Oh
I didnt realize it was a plain old dinner roll. Around here, if a calzone is stuffed with cheese and pepperoni, a lot of people just call it a "pepperoni roll"
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:07:13 PM EST
Yep, I like them.
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:07:39 PM EST


yeah, it's usually in most italian bakeries.

we used to get it all the time when my grandpa lived in NJ.

just pepperoni rolled up in bread , good stuff.

Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:08:16 PM EST
Love them.


Every time we have relatives come down from WV they must bring pepperoni rolls and Oliverio pepper sauce before we let them in the house.

I'll go dig up Nona Maria Cassasa and tell her "your doing it wrong!"

A local sub shop around here has a pizza sub.  About 3/4" of sliced pepperoni, 1/2" of mozzarella, and some sauce all heated up.  I love em.
Link Posted: 1/19/2009 5:11:30 PM EST
No sauce in a stromboli, put sauce in it, it becomes a calzone.

Pepperoni roll is just bread with pepperoni and cheese in a smaller size. Sell them in just about every truck stop mini mart in the US.

I can't tell if you're talking about pizza bread or a calzone.  I mean...we all have calzones.  My local Italian bakery also makes a nice homemade bread with cheese and pepperoni baked into it.  Toast it and put real butter on it (fuck you margarine hippies), and you're in heaven.

Not toasted Baked, soft like a dinner roll.....

I need a pic, any WV'er out there got one handy

It's a WV original.  Introduction widely attributed to County Club Bakery in Fairmont, WV

But, in my opinion, perfected by Colassessano's Pizza, also in Fairmont, WV.

Both locations are within 10 minutes of me!!!

Pasco's pepperoni rolls in New Martinsville, WV blow away the Fairmont variety.
Though the Fairmont type carry in your pocket much easier!

Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, Italian meats or vegetables. The dough is Italian bread dough.

Stromboli are similar to but distinct from calzones, as calzones are pockets of dough filled with meat, cheese and vegetables, and stromboli can contain the same ingredients but are rolled into an oblong loaf (similar to a burrito) and sliced to serve. The common misconception is that ingredients are the primary difference between calzones and strombolis: many people mistakenly think calzones have ricotta or marinara and stromboli does not. In truth, the ingredients for both calzones and strombolis are at the discretion of the chef.


Yes I have had pepperoni rolls. My favorite pizza joint in VA Beach serves them, along with damn good pizza and Stromboli(their italian stromboli which is more like an italian sub but uses pizza dough instead of a hoggie roll kicks ass)

There's a little Italian deli not far from my house that makes fresh pepperoni rolls and strombolis every friday.  The are fucking awesome.
