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.

Coworker just brought me one from Tomaro's Bakery in Clarksburg WVA.  Even at a day or two old it was excellent.
 
I really like how they have strips of pepperoni instead of slices.

Holy frijoles!  I had totally forgot about Gumby's Pizza.  I lived in Iowa City 1984-1988, then again 1991-2000.  Was one of our regular go-to pizza joints. I believe they're still in I.C. on S. Gilbert Street and they still have pepperoni rolls, or a mid-west adaption of them.  More like a pepperoni/motz/bread roll up.

Glad to hear they're still there!  Their pizza was so-so, but everyone was crazy for their Pokey Stix, which is still one of the best cheesy breads I've ever had.  They also used to have a house ranch dressing which was excellent, and then at some point they switched to Ken's, though I've heard they've switched back.  
 
I alternated between their Pokey Stix and pepperoni rolls.  There were endless coupons distrubted through the Add Sheet, so you could get this stuff sooo cheaply - important for college students.

I have had pepperoni rolls a couple of times in travels through WV...  But I remember Kielbasa bread at Barkus Bakery in Pines Plaza shopping center better - - wedged shaped strips of kielbasa were baked into long crusty hard rolls that were sprinkled with kosher salt, caraway and sesame seeds and a bit of parmesan....  Strangely, these were sold only on Fridays and this is when meat was still a no-no for Catholics...  I will admit to risking hell to indulge - - more often than not - - hell won out...  They were delicious.....

It's just pepperoni in bread. I never understood everyone's enthusiasm for it when there are so many more interesting things you can do with pepperoni. Like lasagne.

You could use butter in the sauce for a sophisticated French dish, but we still enjoy butter on toast; you could use cheese in an exquisitely assembled pizza, but we still enjoy chunks of it on crackers.  There's plenty of room for simple treats.

I was pretty shocked to find out that none of my friends outside of WV have heard of pepperoni rolls. I always thought it was a nationwide thing, but I guess it's regional. Do you guys have pepperoni rolls where you live? They are delicious. I am a freak about them in that I take out all but one slice of pepperoni, or if it's the kind with a stick of pepperoni I just pull it out. I only like the taste it leaves behind on the bread and the cheese that's baked inside :D



I've only seen them in WV.

One of our local pizza places serves a "stuffed roll" which can be ordered many different ways pepperoni included. They are $7.50 and up so I guess one is a meal. I don't know how similar it is to the WV one as I've only had one from a gas station somewhere in WV years ago but IIRC it was cheap, maybe $1.50-2.00. and pretty small, about the same size as a egg roll.
