    I've done a fair amount of travelling around the country, and West Virginia is the only place that I've found them. They're not even in all parts of the Mountaineer State. My parents live just outside of Martinsburg, in the eastern panhandle, and they don't have them there. Whenever I travel through the Fairmont-Clarksburg-Morgantown area, I make it a point to get some. And if the only ones you've had have been in bags at convenience stores, you really haven't had any. The best ones come straight from the bakeries that produce them. The best ones I've ever had came from Colasessano's in Fairmont a few years ago (although from the Sterns' most recent review, they seem to have gone down hill since they "spiffed" the place up).

      Pepperoni rolls are available in Ohio's border towns. I just saw them in Marietta, which is a few miles from Parkersburg.

        We had something similar in college in northern NY (Scorereader can attest to these wonderful things), but they're the size of a medium pepperoni pizza (sauce, cheese, and pepperoni), rolled up and deep fried. The Sergi's pizza roll.

        My sister's bf makes excellent pepperoni rolls of the type being discussed... going to have to hit him up for some this week.

          Sergi's was my local place also. I tried a pizza roll sober one time and it was disgusting. Sort of like White Castle and Krystal...they're much better when not 100% sober.

            I found some a few years ago in a gas station in Paducah, KY of all places.

             
            Do you happen to remember which gas station? I go to college in Murray, close to paducah, though I grew up in Erie, Pa, where those are common.

              Whoa,  that was too long ago to remember but I think I was on US 60 headed east but don't remember much more than that.  I would not have guessed that there were things of the sort in Erie, PA.  All over town or at a specific location?

                After my 1st visit to WV last summer, I have searched for pepperoni rolls done right.  Agreed, this is not a purist recipe, but

                  Love em. Giles Town and Country in Beaver Falls, PA makes several kinds. The usual, hot pepper, then odd ones like sausage, Italian hoagie, buffalo chicken, and the last time I was there..kielbasa and kraut.

                    The only "pepperoni rolls" I've had came from a place called Gumby's Pizza in Iowa City.  I guess they're a chain that's usually found in college towns. 
                     
                    Structurally I guess they're the same as what you all are talking about - baked bread with pepperoni inside - though, when I last had them (2001-ish), Gumby's never used pepperoni sticks, just the same slices as what they put on their pizza.

                      For a short time I helped out at a small grocery/deli in New Brighton, PA.  They made their own pepperoni rolls.  We would bake about 5-6 dz. every morning and we were sold out by mid-afternoon.  I ate one once........it was OK, pepperoni in bread dough.  I didn't find them especially fantastic but we sure sold a lot of them.

                        There's a corner gas station/grocery/restaurant called Al's Corner on Big Beaver Boulevard in Koppel, a few miles north of Beaver Falls, that has pepperoni rolls. I've not tried them, but one of these days I'm going to have to stop there and sample some of their stuff.

                          The Mancini bread store in the Strip District (near Wholey's) has pretty good ones.
                           
                          The best I ever had was at Sarcone's Bakery in Philadelphia.

                            Living in WV, I have constant access to them. They all tend to be greasy from the pepperoni and if you dont dip them in marinara or some kind of sauce, they end up being kind of,,,,plain. I suppose they can be a decent little snack, but if some people are looking for a culinary revelation, this isnt it.
