Ezzo Pepperoni
« on: March 11, 2014, 06:53:28 PM »
My sample kit from Ezzo arrived today... 20 pounds of pepperoni, Italian sausage, and hard salami.

I'm doing a pizza party for friends and family this weekend, they're in for a treat!

(Any members from Richmond are welcome to stop by for pizza and beer!)

Willard had to order some parts, so I don't expect it to ship until next week. So, the pizzas this weekend will be cooked in my regular oven. I'm making my tried-and-true NY style, cracker crust, and one laminated Chicago deep dish pizza. The Neapolitan pizzas will have to wait until my new oven arrives, but I'm sure my guests won't miss them at all!

I contacted Ezzo, told them who I was, and asked about getting a sample sent to me. They shipped it free of charge via FedEx Priority Overnight. Nice company for sure!  :)

I've already eaten some of the pepperoni (not on a pizza) and it's excellent. Their hard salami is better than Boar's Head which was my favorite. I'm making up a bunch of pizzas this weekend, so I'll post pictures and tasting notes.

Ah, Ok. I just assumed they only shipped you dry meats. I very much like pork store Italian sausage, much different than store bought.

I did a test-bake of the four types of Ezzo pepperoni that I received.

From left to right:

Ezzo Classic 44mm, Ezzo Supreme 38mm, Ezzo 53mm, and Ezzo GiAntonio.

I really like the Supreme (2nd column) and how it "cups and burns"... the charred edge adds a flavor that I like.

Photos show each pepperoni style in the same order as above (in columns of three).

How long did they take to cup?

Thanks

Not sure if this is old info or not but I found some Ezzo pepperoni sticks for sale at Pennsylvania Macaroni Company, not sure which pepperoni it is but they say its spicy and in a collagen casing leading me to believe it is the Ezzo SS style. Price is $8.50 for a 22 inch stick but shipping is expensive. I ordered 1 and when I get I will update on style. Website is www.PennMac.com. On website go to shop all products then search deli meats, pepperoni is there. Good eating:)

The Supreme does look really good. How does it taste? Is it pretty spicy?

Their "classic" is more spicy than the supreme.
