Pizza Quest Season Three, Episode 7: Eidref Laxa Searches for “What’s Good Dough?”
Three years ago, Eidref Laxa started a podcast in San Jose, California as a way to learn everything he could about pizza so that, maybe, one day he could open his own pizzeria. Over 150 episodes later, “What’s Good Dough“ has become a goldmine of pizza knowledge, culled from the giants in the industry who have generously shared their knowledge with Eidref, who then shares it with his listeners. In this episode of Pizza Quest, Eidref describes his journey of self-discovery with us, including some of the highlight moments of his many interviews with pizza luminaries (and Pizza Quest regulars) like Tony Gemignani, John Arena, Dan Richer, Will Grant, Chris Bianco, Brian Spangler, and many others, while he continues his own never-ending quest for the perfect pizza and perfect pizzeria. Consider the golden nuggets of pizza wisdom provided by Eidref in this episode as a gateway into hundreds of hours of found on his What’s Good Dough podcast.
