Pepperoni

Usually I get the little cheap packets of sliced pepperoni from the grocery store... but I figured I'm a big boy now, I've got this jumbo sized Kitchen Aid Food processor to play with, Let me buy some fresh pepperonie or whole pepperoni or how ever it comes slice it up and see if I can tell/ taste the difference.
Well the first thing I am seeing is that it's so hard I could play baseball with it.
Is it supposed to be hard.
Taste test comes later...I am waiting for dough to rise.

Sadly I don't :(

My aunt makes the BEST pizza in the whole world.... but she never shares recipes :(

I hope there's some top secret file somewhere that contains all of her recipes, she can't possibly ever leave this world without passing them along.

vilasman, get yourself to a good italian deli, or better yet a salumeria, and try different types of dried or cured sausages, called salume. pepperoni is only 1 kind of salume. there are dozens of different kinds, like salami, cappicola, sopressata, coppa, mortadella, and so on. you could make a meal out of a few pieces of salume, cheese, roasted peppers and olives, a hunk of bread, and a glass of wine. i do it once in a while as a treat.

I hate to ask you this, but what are you going to do to the pepperoni with the food processor?

If you're going to slice it, I'm not sure how well that would work, since pepperoni is so hard and is usually sliced thin.

I'm going to have to echo Psiguyy. There are certain things food processors can do (even really expensive ones), and slicing pepperoni is definitely not one of them. In fact, you might even do in your processor's motor just trying.

The pelican head slicing attachment or the roto type slicing attachment on your kitchenaid mixer can handle slicing pepperoni.

So can the motors on the 20 cup Cuisinart or the Robot Coupe food processors.

Actually my 11cu kitchen Aid 670 went right through it. I'll never make pizza dough in it again... that gummed it and slowed it down pretty good, maybe my pepperoni wasnt hard enough. And it sliced thin too. All of the slices were thinner than what I get from the store, most of them were consistent but a few were thin, thinner and thinnest. Thin enough to see through. To me it went through the pepperoni just as easily as it does squash and Zucchini
