Wikipedia: Pepperoni
Pepperoni is an American variety of salami, made from cured pork and beef seasoned with paprika or other chili pepper.

Wikipedia: Oni
An oni (鬼おに) is a kind of yōkai, demon, ogre, or troll in Japanese folklore. They are typically portrayed as hulking figures with one or more horns growing out of their heads. Stereotypically, they are conceived of as red, blue, or white-colored, wearing loincloths of tiger pelt, and carrying iron kanabō clubs.
