West Virginia: Pepperoni Roll

The origins of the pepperoni roll can be traced back to 1927, when Giuseppe Argiro baked pepperoni inside soft yeast rolls at the Country Club Bakery in Fairmont, WV. The rolls became a popular lunch item among coal miners (many were Italian immigrants) because the rolls didn't need to be refrigerated.
