Ed LaDou is widely regarded as the creator of the California style pizza. He was the guy behind Wolfgang Puck's Spago, coming up with the exotic pizza toppings. From what I heard, he had a load of ideas he never got to try out at Spago, so he took the ideas with him and later used them in the founding of CPK. History Channel's American Eats episode on pizza covered this pretty well.EDIT:http://www.pizzatoday.com/features_articles.shtml?article=MTI1MXN1cGVyMTI0OHNlY3JldDEyNTU=
He was also a founder of California Pizza kitche, along with a couple of attorneys. His stance today;NEVER, EVER get in business with attorneys. Well said.
