The hottest-selling topping on pizza in New York City may be missing from the menu for a while as pepperoni is in short supply due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meat production plants say pepperoni production is labor-intensive, and many of them haven't had the same staff physically working.
Pizzeria owners say the shortage hasn't affected the Bronx, but some pizza lovers are saying "pepperoni, pepper-only."
Pizzerias say they will encourage their customers to bring their own pepperoni if they happen to run out.
