I think it's such a bu11shit statement when I read or hear someone claim the pepperoni roll was invented in Fairmont, WV. Are you telling me that pepperoni...which was invented in southern Italy ages ago...was never slapped into a piece of freakin' bread and baked??? Give me a break! I have Italian friends that live all over the United States and abroad. Each time I mention Fairmont's claim, I'm met with a roar of laughter.

The pepperoni roll was invented by Giuseppe "Joseph" Argiro at the Country Club Bakery in Fairmont, West Virginia, in 1927. The rolls originated as a lunch option for the coal miners of north-central West Virginia in the first half of the 20th century. Pepperoni rolls do not need to be refrigerated for storage and could readily be packed for lunch by miners. Pepperoni and other Italian foods became popular in north-central West Virginia in the early 20th century, when the booming mines and railroads attracted many immigrants from Italy. The pepperoni roll bears a resemblance to the pasty and sausage roll, which originated in the mining communities of Great Britain, as well as to the Italian calzone.

Yea...Yea...Yea... I get it "Use the Google." I see where it's posted all over the net about Giuseppe "inventing" the pepperoni roll in 1927. I think it's bu11shit. I'd love to see the documentation that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it originated in Fairmont. I don't believe such documentation exists. Furthermore, salsiccia napolentana piccante (pepperoni to the italians in southern Italy) has been around LOOONG before 1927. My point is this: I believe pepperoni rolls were baked in Italy before (snickering) Fairmont, West Virginia. Honestly, do you really believe that southern Italians NEVER, EVER, slapped some salcissia napolentana piccante in bread and baked it????????? If you do, I've got some beachfront property I'd love to sell you. Finally, just because someone posted a nice fairy tale about Giuseppe Argiro on the 'net, doesn't make it truth. My guess is the STORY was invented to distinguish the Country Club Bakery from the it's competitors.

go to italy and try to order yourself a pepperoni roll.(good luck with that)

it's similar to a calzone, but not the same, and was indeed first created in fairmont.

I agree wow. My family and I lived in Naples, Italy for 3.5 years while in service, I've never once saw a pepporoni roll there. And here's a shocker for you loser. They don't even make pepperoni pizze there like we do here.

Even the word "Pepperoni" is of American origin. In Italy, this type of hot salami is called salame piccante or salamino piccante.
By the way, Mr. Laughing at Losers from Morgantown, I heard Don Knotts was actually born hundreds of years ago in Sicily. So much for your town's claim to fame.

If I grab some ground beef, squeeze it into a patty, and "invent" a name for it, and fry it up,...is it not still a hamburger?

I hate Fairmont. It's crappy when compared to Morgantown and Clarksburg. It's a dump.

Losers! Pepperoni wasn't even inverted in Italy. I haven't seen anything that confirms the first pepperoni roll was made in Fairmont. But, then again anything is possible. Even Beevis getting a brain for Christmas!

Yea,yea,yea,I get it. Pepperoni wasn't invented in Italy. I never said it was. I'm aware that the word pepperoni is of American origin. I also know that if I were to visit Italy and order a pepperoni pizza, I'd get a pizza with peppers on it. I understand what you Fairmont fools are trying to tell me. However, you're missing my point. I merely stated that it's very, very, very,very likely that...salsiccia napoletana piccante...which is a form of pepperoni, was baked in bread looong before the (I'm laughing while I type this) Country Club Bakery "invented" the idea. Now, reach up and grab that idea before it passes over your head again.

Um I believe you should revert back to your original post, "Are you telling me that pepperoni...which was invented in southern Italy.." Get your head out of your butt, pick a point, then we can debate it. I get what your saying, your just wrong!

Oh! You got me there Deb!(rolling my eyes)

You neglected to mention that at the bottom of my original post I typed:

salsiccia napoletana piccante

Now Deb....try to follow along....

Would you have understood if I originally posted?

"Are you telling me that salsiccia napoletana piccante, which was invented in southern Italy ages ago, was never slapped into a piece of freakin' bread and baked....."

I chose to use the American word pepperoni instead. Sadly, my attempt to help you along failed miserably. Additionally, you claim to "get what your saying, your just wrong..."

How are you certain that I'm wrong? Let's debate that point.

your...possessive...(example)

"That is your pepperoni roll."

you're...contraction...you...a re...(example)

Okay,shoot me. I'm not putting forth to much effort in responding to you. You giving me a lesson in grammer and not furthering your discussion does nothing but prove that you have no actual point.
