Pizza Talk: Sourdough Pizza with Dan Richer and Razza

Written By Peter Reinhart
Tuesday, 23 June 2020 Pizza Talk

Razza Pizza Artigianale has become known as one of the finest, most inventive and in demand pizzerias in the world. It’s founder, Dan Richer, is on a never-ending journey of self-discovery — in both pizza and in life — which makes him the ideal candidate for a Pizza Talk interview. Dan is among a growing cohort of influencers (think Anthony Mangieri, Will Lawrence-Grant, Derek Sanchez, among them) in the movement toward naturally leavened, sourdough pizza. But Razza is also a leader in thoughtful local sourcing of grain and ingredients — two other fast growing trends — which makes Dan a sought after role model and guide by other pizza operators. In this two-part episode we’ll hear all about the Razza story and then, in our next episode, Dan will join our Pizza Yodi’s, John Arena and Brian Spangler, to take the discussion (and demo’s) even further.

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.
