What You Need To Know About Pepperoni Pizza And Wine

Pepperoni is an Italian or Italian-style salami made from pork, beef, and just the right spices. It is most common pizza topping, garnishing over one third of all pizzas sold. Would you believe more than 250 million pounds of pepperoni decorate American pizzas annually? There's a fast-food joint not far from me that sells relatively inexpensive slices. I don't like their pepperoni (bologna style) and I never went back.

In addition to the wines mentioned in our food pairing table you might consider a Zinfandel or a red wine from Southern Italy, not surprising since it's the home of both pizza and pepperoni.
