Best ingredients for upgrading your pepperoni pizza

Pepperoni pizza variations

There’s no accounting for taste where pizza is concerned. Everyone has their own personal favourite toppings. Among the classics, pepperoni pizza continues to be the top choice for many.

  • These days, pizza fans are daring to add some variety to their favourite meal, so much so that pizzerias are now proposing toppings with all types of deli meats, one as delicious as the next.

Salami, prosciutto and company

The term "deli meats" describes a variety of products made of pork, beef, poultry and game.

  • Some of them are even vegetarian.
  • It's true. It’s possible to find grilling sausages on the market made from soybeans that could easily be mistaken for ham and fine herb sausages.

Salami, bacon, prosciutto, turkey, ham (Black Forest, Bayonne, etc.), sausages, and mortadella are just some of the tasty treats that grace the counters of grocery store delis. And now, the best pizzerias use these meats to reinvent pizza with amazing taste combinations.

Variations are just as delicious

Even if you’re a fan of pepperoni pizza, there’s nothing to stop you from trying another kind from time to time; it’s not as though you’d be abandoning your favourite pizza.

  • Think about it: a pizza with tomato sauce, piled with fresh Genoa salami, sliced bocconcini, and basil.
  • Or a pizza topped with thin slices of prosciutto, onions, mushrooms, green peppers, black olives, and the whole thing sprinkled with mozzarella. Doesn’t just the thought of it make your mouth water?


According to nutritionists, it’s quite possible for pizza to be part of a healthy and balanced diet as long as you don’t overdo it. So, forget the guilt trip if you feel like eating some.

A perfect solution for lunches

Here’s a tip: while you wait for your pepperoni pizza to be delivered, start your meal with a bowl of soup.

  • It’s a good bet that after one or two slices, you’ll be full. You can say goodbye to all those guilty feelings.

Going to a restaurant?

  • Do the same thing and ask for a doggy bag to bring your leftover pizza home. No lunch to prepare for the next day — awesome, right?
