‘Wanna Pizza Me?’ – Local pizza-making hero appears on Chopped (Episode 832)

John Carruthers of Crust Fund Pizza made it to runner-up on Chopped Season 54, Episode 14: “Wanna Pizza Me?”

John addresses the unforgiving Chopped counters early in the episode: “You have not one second longer than those clocks say”

We talk at length about his experience, from the thought process behind preparing his dishes to his reaction to hearing, “Chef John, you’ve been Chopped.”

We also talk about Crust Fund Pizza, the local charity-focused, back-alley pizza venture that got him on the show.

Crust Fund Pizza is run from John’s Instagram account:
