WHY AREN'T MY PEPPERONI CHIPS CRISPY?

There are several reasons why your pepperoni chips may have not crisped up. If your pepperoni is sliced too thick, if you did not blot enough grease from your pepperoni, or if you did not cook the pepperoni long enough are all reasons why you may not have a completely crisp chip. It's important to note that the edges of the pepperoni will be crisper than the center of the pepperoni round. The good news is that even if your pepperoni chips don't get 100% crispy, they will still taste amazing!

WHAT TO EAT WITH PEPPERONI CHIPS

Pepperoni chips are great served as a stand-alone salty snack, as a side served with sandwiches or soup, or crumbled over a salad. You can also try them with a dip like marinara sauce, pesto, or a ranch dip.
