Lucali's Top Rated Pepperoni
« on: October 06, 2010, 03:51:22 PM »
Just got off the phone with G Esposito And Sons @ 357 Court St, BROOKLYN, NY 11231.
They make the Pepperoni that Lucali pizza uses and most think is so great.
Long story short, $100.00 to sell and ship 6 small sticks!  If anyone from the Portland OR area is going to NYC and is thinking about buying from Espioito, count me in.  Thanks

I have used that esposito pepperoni, and while it is great, it really wasn't that much different or better than a hormel rosa, ezzo, or even boars head/margherita.    There are subtle differences, but in the end these are all top of the crop pepperonis.

For those in the Portland, OR area, that is the brand used by Brian Spangler at Apizza Scholls. Apparently he prefers some east coast brands but they are not available to him where he is in Portland.

yes, cirelli foods, a place one mile from my house sells it.    Just stick with that and save the money you would spend on shipping.   Its right in the same ballpark.   I also forgot to mention another great brand, carrando.

Back in the day, 70's I own a deli and wine shop, Molinari was our #1 brand.
I've been to the factory and love their stuff, all of it.

They're not proud of their pepperoni are they?

What the... ?

I'll stick with the stuff I get at the grocery store, thanks. Boars Head works for me.

Have you tried hot sopresetta? Pretty good as well.

Look at the picture of this guy and to think, he won the fight.................
I like meats that can stand out on pie, not get lost.
Another goodie, Hot Coppa, big yummer

That was going to be my next question... lol

I LOVE coppa. Where I grew up, we called it Capocolla. Same difference. It kicks butt... especially on an Italian sub. You gotta have the right bread, though, for the perfect northeast style Italian sub. Most of the crap that passes for "french bread" or "sub rolls" here in the Austin area is very dense crumb, flavorless white bread with a crispy crust.

I really do need to branch out into bread baking...

I can get just about any Italian meats I want or need at Mandola's here in Austin, including fresh sweet or hot sausage. Owned by the one, the only... Damian Mandola himself. I've met the guy, he's friggin hilarious and makes you feel like family.
