Pepperoni Rolls

The Pepperoni roll is a great snack or lunch! In 1927 Giuseppe Joseph Argiro opend a bakery, the Country Club Bakery, in Fairmont WV. Joseph had emigrated from Caabria Italy. He created the pepperoni roll expereiment with various bread doughs and pepperoni until he got it right! This was a creation that coal miners could eat with one had and drink water with another. The pepperoni roll grew in populary and various other bakiers began to develop their own versions of the snack food. Some versions have pepperoni sticks, round pices of pepperoni, grounded pepperoni or pepperoni cut into smaller pieces. Some versions have cheese and some do not. I love making pepperoni rolls! I use hand cut pepperoni and hand shredded mozzarella cheese with a sprinkle of garlic power and oregano. I have tried several versions of dough, a dense and a fluffy dough. Reviews have been mixed, many liked both. I like to roll mine into a "sandwich" and create layers of of cheese and pepperoni.
