There's a lot of buzz about specialty pizzas — from Neapolitan to Margherita to Buffalo chicken with spinach and artichokes. But let's hear it for ole school. Put your hands together for good old Pepperoni.
Foznews.com reports few dishes are more American than a pepperoni pizza. Both pepperoni and pizza are versions of Italian specialties that we as a nation have made our own. (In fact, there's no such thing as "pepperoni" in Italy, and American visitors who order it there are often surprised and disappointed when what they end up with is peperone — bell pepper.) Few other cuisines are as widely popular as pizza, and pepperoni is one of the most widely popular toppings, no matter the regional style of pie they are decorating.
