Pepperoni Rolls

Pepperoni rolls are mighty popular in northern West Virginia and western Pennsylvania. In this region of the country, it wouldn't be a "party" without at least one large plate of pepperoni rolls. In this article, today's N.Y. Times explores the love affair that people in this region have with pepperoni rolls.

According to the article:
At BFS convenience stores, where they’re sold alongside Hot Pockets and other nationally distributed grab-and-go foods, shift workers warm pepperoni rolls in microwave ovens and dip them in packets of marinara sauce.

At the Ritzy Lunch, a venerable diner in Clarksburg (WV), grill cooks dress split rolls with chili and cheese. Country club barkeepers sell pepperoni rolls as ballast to beer-drinking golfers. They’re a breakfast food for glass-plant laborers, peddled at doughnut shops.
