Pizza Talk: Meatball Parm Sandwich with Dan Richer

Written By Peter Reinhart
Tuesday, 11 August 2020 Pizza Talk

One of our producers, Brad English, saw a photo on Instagram of this Meatball Parmesan Sandwich from Razza, Dan Richer’s amazing pizzeria in Jersey City, NJ.  Brad was so inspired by the photo that he immediately contacted Dan and asked him if he’d show us how to make it here on Pizza Talk. And, now, here it is (thank you Dan and Brad)!  One of the things that really differentiates this sandwich from your average meatball sub is the roll, made from Razza’s own  naturally leavened pizza dough. As you will see during this demo, the roll alone will get your juices flowing, but watch how the sandwich just keeps building and building until it simply explodes with flavor!   Enough talk — watch this episode, its time for the eating…..

Vision Statement

Pizza Quest is a site dedicated to the exploration of artisanship in all forms, wherever we find it, but especially through the literal and metaphorical image of pizza. As we share our own quest for the perfect pizza we invite all of you to join us and share your journeys too. We have discovered that you never know what engaging roads and side paths will reveal themselves on this quest, but we do know that there are many kindred spirits out there, passionate artisans, doing all sorts of amazing things. These are the stories we want to discover, and we invite you to jump on the proverbial bus and join us on this, our never ending pizza quest.
