Episode Notes

For years now, Dan Richer's name has been synonymous with superlative pizza. At his Razza Pizza Artigianale in Jersey City, NJ, he turns out some of the most acclaimed pizza in the United States. Now, he's teamed up with collaborator Katie Parla to share his hard-earned pizza-making wisdom in The Joy of Pizza, which debuts today (November 9, 2021). Andrew was knocked out by the book's wealth of information, instructive images, and passion, and we're thrilled to celebrate this book and share a new conversation with Dan, all about the writing process.
