Pizza Talk: John Gutekanst, The Pizza Goon Renaissance Man!
The Pizza Goon lives! John Gutekanst, owner of Avalanche Pizza in Athens, Ohio, and whose blog, The Pizza Goon is only one of his alter ego’s, is, to my mind, one of the true Renaissance men of the pizza and culinary community. In this lively conversation and demo, John takes us deep into his creative process, shares some recipes and culinary history, as well giving us a glimpse of his generous spirit and determination to make the world a better place. Where does he get his boundless energy and desire to serve? Learn all about it here in this enlivening Pizza Talk interview.
