pepperoni bread
« on: July 17, 2013, 02:33:33 PM »
Hey!
I was rasied in WVa for most of my life. as a chuild my dad would take me to Logan WV prior to 85' and i remember stopping at a gas station and he always bought rolls that had chunks of pepperoni in it. Nothing but greasy goodness. If anyone remembers this then please reply also if anyone might have this recipe please share. Ive tried to recreate this with no luck.

Thanks

Millard

Mmm, pepperoni rolls!

No recipe handy, but they are a great memory of mine, as well.

I'm not familiar with the product that you mention, but a good many pizzerias do produce what they like to call pepperoni rolls or pepperoni sticks. These are really nothing more than regular pizza dough to which they add chopped or ground pepperoni at the rate of about 25% of the dough weight, so for 1-pound of dough they would add about 4-ounces of pepperoni.

Millard,

I also purchased some pepperoni rolls at Sarcone's Bakery at Reply 12 (second photo down) http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,19792.msg194185.html#msg194185  The pepperoni rolls were small, but they were greasy and tasty like you poste. 

I also posted at Reply 65 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,19792.msg209349.html#msg209349  I went to the 9th St. Italian Market again and hoped to purchase some of the pepperoni rolls and also some of the dough balls Sarcone's sells, but they were out of the pepperoni rolls and the dough balls.  They told me I would have to order the dough balls in advance.  I am also interested in recreating those pepperoni rolls and when I get to Sarcone's again I want to purchase more of those pepperoni rolls and maybe some dough balls if I can get them.

There was no pepperoni in the dough that I recall.

millard,

What do the pepperoni rolls look like with the above recipe you posted and how big is each pepperoni roll?

Thats the problem I cant master the pepperoni bread. I fear it might be the bread recipe causing my problems. The rolls where approx. 6in long and about 2-3in round. And sometimes had chunks then other times had sliced pepperoni in it.

Millard,

I don't know what is causing your pepperoni rolls not to be right.  When I get down to the 9th St. Italian Market again I will try to find out how they make their pepperoni rolls and purchase some dough balls.  There are tests that can be done on dough balls to determine what protein flour they might be using. 

I am from Lancaster County, Pa. and there are a lot of Amish people here.  Lol, about the no good pizza here though.  I do have a market stand (Root's Market) where I make two kinds of pizzas that I learned how to make here on the forum.  I hope they are what is described as good.  :-D

Maybe Tom Lehmann can help us more.

millard,

I forgot to reply to this part of your post.  Yes, I really dislike this time of year because it can be so hot and humid.  Today is another one of those days.

I have a recipe which I think you might be looking for, it's called "Chop chop" bread, the recipe is floating around the internet, I discovered it in the recipe booklet that came with a friends Gold Star bread machine many years ago. I am pressed for time right now, but I will find it and post later tonight or tomorrow. Maybe you will find it if you "google" chop chop bread.

Tom,

I posted the same post over at my 9th St. Italian Market Philly thread, but thought if you looked at the pepperoni bread you might have some idea of how that pepperoni bread is made. 

This is what I posted on my other thread.

I went to Sarcone's Bakery website at http://www.sarconesbakery.com/  because the last time I went to Sarcone's Bakery to try and purchase what I thought were the pepperoni rolls and pizza dough balls they were sold out of both of them.  When looking at what products Sacrone's Bakery sells at http://sarconesbakery.com/?page_id=22 I didn't see what I thought were the pepperoni rolls and only saw pepperoni bread.  I called Sarcone's to see if what I really purchased were pepperoni rolls, or if they were pepperoni bread.  The lady I spoke to said they don't sell any pepperoni rolls and only sell the pepperoni bread in large pieces uncut or single. http://www.sarconesbakery.com/images/pepperoni_bread.jpg  I then asked if the pepperoni bread is made out of pizza dough they sell.  The lady told me no, the pepperoni bread is not make out of the pizza dough balls.  It is now starting to make sense to me why the pepperoni bread I had at Sarcone's was so good and so different.  I have no idea how I would start to make that pepperoni bread, but that is something I am interested in trying to do for market. 

I ordered a pepperoni bread and two pizza dough balls for tomorrow morning.

I made something similar in my *gasp* home oven before  I built my WFO at this house.

Norma, these were made with the same dough that we used for pizza.  I usually make these (Stromboli) once the pizza feeding frenzy dies down...with whatever is left of the toppings.

Millard and anyone else that might be interested,

If anyone is interested in looking, the photos of the pepperoni bread I purchased today are at Reply 80 (second photo down) http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,19792.msg273720.html#msg273720  and at 82 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,19792.msg273724.html#msg273724  and the next posts down. 

Millard is that the kind of pepperoni bread you are interested in making?
