So, what is pepperoni?

Pepperoni is a type of cured sausage that is usually made of beef and pork. It has a distinctive spicy flavor and a red-orange color, thanks to the generous amounts of paprika and chili powder used in its seasoning. Pepperoni is commonly used as a pizza topping, but it can also be enjoyed on sandwiches, wraps, or as a snack. Its texture is slightly chewy with a crisp outer layer when cooked, and it's often sliced thin to evenly distribute its intense flavor. Overall, pepperoni adds a bold kick to any dish it's added to, making it a beloved ingredient for those who love spice.
