English term or phrase:pepperoni
pepperoni- how can this possibly be translated into German?
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"
