I’ve always though my whole life pepperoni was an Italian food… it’s actually not! WHAAAAAT?!
Pepperoni is in fact an American food. Mind blown. In Italian, the word “peperoni” with one “P” is the word for bell peppers and there’s no salami type item named “pepperoni” with two “P’s” that is commonly used as a pizza topping. Just here at pizza places across America.
So I guess next weekend for the 4th you can celebrate with some American Pepperoni during your cookouts.
