After 3 pages of debate in this thread:

Hot from the oven!


Served up on the plate!

One of my favorite things when I visit my uncle in Beckley is visiting one of the local grocery stores or delis for some Pepperoni Rolls.  I have found them every now and then at Frys here in Arizona - they are the western US brand for Krogers so I guess institutional knowledge has begun to spread a bit.

They sell them at most of the "minit marts" around here.  I have scarffed down a few at 3  in the morning on my way home in a cab.  Not bad, but not that good either.  Too much bread and not enough pizza stuff.  Just my .02

I buy frozen bread dough and make my own also.  I put banana peppers and pepporoni in mine.  I am also from West Virginia.  When my sister comes back to the mother state,  she always goes to local pizza places to get a pizza bread.

I live in the heart of "pepperoni roll" country and yes, they are quite popular. You can buy them pretty much anywhere food is sold.
The standard "American Pepperoni Roll" is the most popular...bread around a short quartered stick of pepperoni...no cheese, no sauce.
For those that have never tried them, and wish too, my recipe is REAL easy:
Take standard roll dough (in the refridge section of the grocery store with the cookie dough, screw that making your own dough crap) wrap it around a quarterd short stick of pepperoni. Bake like regular rolls. EASY!
Follow up in an hour or so with antacid.

I at least need cheese in my pepperoni rolls but prefer sauce and cheese.  Pepper Jack or Mozzarella.

Teeth or no teeth, it's an underground miner thing.  WV got a lot of Italian immigrants who worked in the mines in the late 1800s, early 1900s.  The US .mil started using a p-roll MRE just a few years ago.

So is this like pizza bread?

Kinda.  More like a small, Stomboli-shaped Calzone.

Evidently the West Virginia mountain folk are laying claim to creating what folks in Italy have been eating for centuries.

Sorry guys, but a Calzone by any other name is still a Calzone.  Hell, even the Stromboli and Panzarotti know where they came from...

...and it aint West Virginia.

And the debate still rages on... I get it now, I'm clear as to the content and construction of these WV creations.  Everyone is trying to label these as something they are not, NOT a Calzone, NOT a Stromboli.  It's a PEPPERONI ROLL... as in a roll with pepperoni inside, just that simple.

I think my attempt turned out pretty good, although never having tried one before. I got the recipe off of the internet with credit going to Fairmont, WV.  They are at their best when hot!

And we'll need to see dental records please!

Bossman, both the Calzone and Stromboli can be made with nothing but pepperoni inside (heresey, but possible).  The difference is the shape of the bread, that's all.  IOW: a "Pepperoni Roll" is nothing more than (and I say this with love in my heart, as I miss the Appalachians) a hilbilly Calzone.

I really thought you guys were joking in the other thread when the statement was made that chunks/slices/strips of a spiced Italian sausage wrapped in dough was "invented" in WV.  While I now see that y'all are serious, you are also seriously mistaken.

There are no winners in the great Calzone/Stromboli debate. Here in my heavily colonized by Italian immigrants town, Calzone is cheese and meat. Stromboli is cheese, meat, and sauce. Pepperoni bread ( OH YEAH!) is bread dough, baked with pepperoni in the middle. I've been to places in CA where a "Stromboli" is a pizza, folded in half (WTF?).... guess it all depends on where you live. Pepperoni bread is a gift from the hillbilly gods. Stromboli/Calzone argument is almost the same as the beans/no-beans debate. Here it is Chili, or Meat Sauce for your hot dogs. Everything is regional. I think somebody should write to our dear leader, his most holyness, the messiah B. Hussien Obama, and ask for his guidance and final ruling on what is or isn't the proper label for the before mentioned foods.

Sir we're in agreement with much of what you say.  I think that the difference with these is the bread in which they are wrapped.  Most of the recipes dealing with the WV Pepperoni Rolls, call for a "whitebread" style dough. I make my own pizza dough and I would never use, milk or sugar and omit olive oil.  So as a nod to WV, I'll give them their unique style Pepperoni Roll.
