Salami


Explanation:
peperoni (engl.) ist not = peperoni (ger.). The German word describes a green chili like fruit/plant that is very hot while the English word describes sliced sausage which is very similar to the German salami.

If you find it on a pizza, a sandwich etc. it would definitely be "Salami"

Pfefferoni


Explanation:

Sorry, but pepperoni is a vegetable, not a salami - this is a translation mistake !
The right translation into German is "Pfefferoni" = a small, especially hot green or red pepper
