Pizza Shops Dealing With Pepperoni Shortage

Out of the Oven Pepperoni Pizza

How could 2020 possibly get worse?

People… we’re staring down a pepperoni shortage.

With pizza sales booming during the pandemic quarantine, demand for pepperoni has nearly doubled – leading to supply issues and rising prices for pizza shops.

While pepperoni supplies haven’t been an issue so far for the larger chains, smaller ‘mom-and-pop’ pizza shops are feeling the hurt with pepperoni costs up roughly 150 percent.

I have noticed that sausage (frozen) pizza is more difficult to find lately. Now we have to deal with increased pepperoni costs??!
