Battistoni Meats' "Buffalo Style" Cup n Char is one of the best I've tried.

Looking to upgrade my pepperoni too! I have calls into a few places now...keeping my fingers crossed.
The stuff I use now is good, high quality but tends to be greasy.

Leigh,

The EZZO pepperoni curled well and also smelled great after the bake.  I didn't have a chance to try a slice or take any photos.  :( A forum member Grant tried a slice on a special pie I made for him.  Grant said it tasted great.  Will use some EZZO next week and see if I find time to try a slice.

Best of luck to you in finding the right pepperoni!

I've been using Ezzo pepperoni for a few years now, and am very happy with it.
Get mine from Pennmac.

How do you think it compares to the Salumeria Beliese pepperoni that Joe Beddia uses?
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

Jonas,

For my tastes I liked the Ezzo pepperoni better.  The very crisp edges tasted like nothing I ever tried before and the whole pepperoni's were very good.  Just like other thing else related to pizza, everyone has their own favorites.

I too have settled upon Ezzo pepperoni as my favorite go to.  Love the SS. 

From the Ezzo site: Ezzo Supreme Special (SS) Burns charcoal black around the edges and boasts a slightly hotter seasoning. This pepperoni, developed for Buffalo, NY, is very popular for its exceptional look and flavor . Again the base meat block is key to product consistency.

A while back I drove all over the state for it.  Even went with Aimless Ryan to his supplier in Columbus... then I found a supplier willing to sell 25 lb boxes as cash sales only 5 miles from one of my favorite stores.  We buy a box and split it now among 4 friends.  Always have a fresh batch that way.  The cup and char spice package is "da bomb!"  ... price has been going up the past year though.
All the best, Dave

I started with the 38mm, then tried the 51mm, but it doesn't cup like the 38mm, so went back to it.

FYI - I think PennMac still has their half price shipping sale going on.
They ship perishables in Styrofoam boxes with ice bags, so the half price shipping helps with that increased shipping cost.

Dave,

Glad to hear you have settled on the Ezzo Supreme Special.  I noticed both of the Ezzo Pepperonis I have tired had a bit of a hot taste, but then after they are baked the taste transforms into something wonderful.  I also believe it is the base meat block that is key to the products consistency.  I also liked that the sliced pepperoni's are so easy to apply and don't want to stick together at all, which is a blessing if someone is trying to apply pepperoni's to many pizzas.  The millimeter is also perfect. 

Glad to hear you found a supplier willing to sell you 25 lb. boxes in cash sales.  I haven't found out what cases of the Ezzo pepperoni are yet.  Am working with Ezzo now to find out if I can get a supplier in my area.

Since you are close to Columbus maybe that is why you had better luck.  Lucky you!  ;D :chef: :pizza:

Thanks for telling us that you like the 38mm better.  If PennMac still has their half price shipping sale going on that is good.

The Ezzo pepperoni is great, but itís not on the same level as the Vermont smoke and cure Razza uses. That said, itís half the price... The flavor is great. Ive used the normal cupping pepperoni. Itís a different product than salumeria bielesse. Ezzo is pizza style and salumeria is sandwich style.

My one gripe about the ezzo roni is lack of grease in the cups after baking

Lou,

Is the Vermont smoke and cure Razza uses precut when they get it?  I have tried Vermont smoke and cure different times but it came in a stick.
