At Prima Strada, we’re passionate about pizza. And while we adhere to the traditions of Neapolitan pizza, we love pepperoni. To be clear, we mean the smoky pork style of cured sausage typically found on pizzas in North America, not the Italian word for bell peppers (although we love those too).
If you’re a regular at PPS, you know we love to make everything we can from scratch. Dough for pizza and bread, sausage and desserts are just a few of the delicious foods to come out of the PPS kitchens. We’re happy to announce we’ve added Pepperoni to the list.
For years, PPS pepperoni was made locally by Choux Choux Charcuterie. Behind the scenes, PPS Chef Alex How was noodling on how to make it in house. After testing a few recipes, Chef Alex found “the one” and now transforms Hertel‘s pork into the perfect smoky addition to any pizza.
The next time you walk in the door of PPS Bridge take a look to your left – you’ll see links of handmade pepperoni curing in preparation for smoking! Haven’t tried PPS pepperoni? On your next visit order a Pepperoni pizza or add it to your favourite PPS pie. Buon appetito!
