Livin’ Local Podcast Episode 08:

Kristen Bell, Owner – Dough Trader Pizza, Spearfish

Kristen Bell – Owner, Dough Trader Pizza Spearfish

Find out how an idea, an Idaho mining camp, a thrift store and 3 donated ovens came together to create Dough Trader Pizza in Spearfish, SD.

In Livin’ Local Episode 07 from we get to know owner Kristen Bell. Kristen is a 4th-generation business owner in the Spearfish local restaurant business.

In this episode we learn that the unique sourdough pizza dough uses a starter that was created more than 130 years ago.

What’s the most unusual thing Kristen’s included on a pizza? We’ll learn the history of the current location which has seerved the Spearfish community as everything from a drive-in catering to Passion Play patrons to a pottery studio.

Kristen lists the challenges and rewards of running the business and her personal and professional key to success – which involves a special “ingredient” that goes into the dough (and it has nothing to do with sourdough!)
