About Dan Richer

Chef Dan began to cook and was inspired to learn everything he could about Italian cooking techniques and ingredients. He started a catering company at first and then began working in professional kitchens. In 2007, Dan purchased Arturo’s in Maplewood, New Jersey, and turned a struggling pizzeria into a fun, lively neighborhood restaurant lauded for its fresh ingredients and artisanal pizza. In recognition of his cooking, Dan was a James Beard Foundation Rising Star Chef semi-finalist in 2011.

"One of these slices is from a #naturallyleavened pizza. The other has a very small amount of commercial yeast plus the levain. The difference in flavor is astounding #razzapizza #realpizza #pizzascience"
