  • Stromboli is actually the name of an active volcano in Italy. It has been erupting continuously in different amounts since 1932.
  • In Italy, bread is not an appetizer as most restaurant now use it to be. If you go to an authentic Italian restaurant, Pepperoni Stromboli will be most likely be a side or main entrée instead of an appetizer.
  • Another cultural misappropriation is that pepperoni in Italian means bell peppers. So if you order something with pepperoni in Italy, don’t be surprised if you get vegetables especially bell peppers in your dish instead of slices of sausage.
  • Italian food is quite diverse and is eaten differently in every region of the country but some common ingredients are tomatoes, olives, cheese, meat and pasta.
