Not sure on which foods to avoid??

I'm 11weeks and I've read several online and pregnancy books on food on which to avoid eating. It still doesn't give me a good list. Like ex...is eating pepperoni ok to eat. I know my dr told me about deli meats that they may contain listeria but isn't pepperoni already a cooked meat or do I need to heat it up before I eat it? And other food I've been eating canned soups...is that harmful too? With all the preservatives it has I'm not sure if I should eat it. I do eat a lot of fresh foods but sometimes I do like eating quick meals every now and then. If anyone can direct me to a good website that has a detailed list on foods to avoid,  I greatly appreciate it.

The big things are anything unpasteurized, oceanic fish, and any raw meat :)

My Dr said no pepperoni unless cooked on a pizza or something else.
