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.

      "#Repost @slowrisepizza with @get_repost ・・・ So much has already been said about this rising pizza star, I’m not sure I could add anything to it except to say that he is my best new #pizzafriend on the East Coast. If you don’t already know him, please meet @danricher from @razzanj in Jersey City. Dan has been making pizza for many years but he recently skyrocketed to pizza stardom due to a teeny-tiny little @nytimes review where @pete_wells proclaimed that, “the best pizza in New York is in New Jersey.” Need I say more? MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Tuesday, March 20 at 2:30pm -AND- Wednesday, March 21 at 3:00pm at the @kingarthurflour booth #2729 at the #pizzaexpo2018 in Las Vegas.
