Best Pizza In St. Louis According To Me

St. Louis Pizza Comparisons

Because I'm only one dad and can't eat every sandwich in the city, I visit as many highly-rated pizza places as possible while sticking to recommendations from friends, family, and long-time St. Louis residents.

These rankings are based on a combination of taste and price, with a lesser emphasis on service and atmosphere. I use Costco Pizza as the baseline comparison as a 5/10 pizza. You can read more details on my restaurant review philosophy.

But remember, I don't make the rules; I just think ‘em up and write ‘em down."

Best Pizzas In St. Louis

  1. #1 Best Pizza In St. Louis

    Union Loafers

    Union Loafers Takeaway. The Crown Jewel Of St. Louis. My favorite St. Louis restaurant. 8/10 Salad. 8.9/10 Sandwiches. 9.5/10 Pizza. 10/10 Sourdough Bread.

    The Simone Biles of STL food.

    Always order a loaf. Get anything with bread. ~$8 bread. $8 salad. $15 sandwiches. It's expensive. Ask your parents to take you when they come to town. Twenty minutes to an hour for pick up. Ordering pizza can be a pain. Parking is easy on side streets with a three-minute walk. Tip: Try a pizza rosa with chili oil at lunch. Note: Pizza review coming in the future.

    Pie Guy Pizza

    Pie Guy Pizza Takeaway. Pie Guy are my guys for pizza. 8.1 / 10 pizza is great for a Friday night with friends. Standard plain pizza with above-average sauce, cheese, crust, and crunch. $20 for an 18" pie that weighs 34.4 oz is very reasonably priced for St. Louis. Give them thirty minutes to an hour on Friday or Saturday night. Friendly service and great vibes with pizza murals. Parking can be hard on Manchester, so you might need to drive around. Not a great place to hop out to pick up the pizza.

    Katie's Pizza and Pasta

    Katie's Pizza And Pasta Takeaway. Family-friendly pizza and pasta. 7.1/10 pizza with good flavor, but could use a crispier crust. $18+ for a personal pizza is expensive. Gave kids pizza dough to play with. Movies on in the background. Fun, festive feel. Parking is easy in a dedicated lot. Service was slow to start but picked up.

  4. #4 Best Pizza In St. Louis

    Peel Wood Fired Pizza

    Peel Wood Fired Pizza Takeaway. Pizza that will always have a place for you. 7 / 10 Margherita pizza. Very good, crunchy crust with excellent mozzarella balls. Sauce is a bit liquidity and sweet. Expensive and small, I could eat a whole pizza myself. My friends liked the crazy garlic chicken and mushroom pizza more than I ever would. Those didn't have sauce, and the chicken was dry, but the crust was still strong. $16-19 for a pizza, depending on specialty.

    Everyone but me had a beer, mocktail, or cocktail. The salads are huge. We had four pizzas, two salads, and two apps for eight adults. ~$40/person after tax and tip.

    I called ten places on Thursday, and Peel was the only one with space for a table of eight at 7 pm. It's a huge restaurant. Service was slow, but we were not in a rush. Parking is a pain in the butt.

    Nicky Slices Pizza Club

    Nicky Slices Pizza Club Takeaway. St. Louis's Secret Detroit Style Pizza. Big disclaimer: It was the first time I ever had Detroit-style pizza. I'm a NJ pizza purist. 6.9 / 10 pizza score. We got the OG cheese for $20 base, up to $27 after mandatory tax, tip, and fee.

    Light and fluffy crust with a delicious crunch around the edge. It had an uneven cheese and sauce distribution. Good focaccia, ok pizza. Doesn't cross the Flood Line.

    The only way to find out about Nicky Slice, besides this article, is on Instagram. My buddy told me about it. They open up ordering on Monday night at 6 pm. They usually sell out by Tuesday or Wednesday night. Then they deliver on Thursday or Friday.

    It comes pre-baked. You have to bake it yourself in three days.

    Worth doing once, but probably not again for me.

  6. #6 Best Pizza In St. Louis

    La Pizza

    La Pizza Takeaway. I'd give it a 6.8/10 on the cheese pizza. New York-style pizza in St. Louis. Seems like the quality has gone down recently. $25 for a large pie with tax and tip is ~2x Costco. Call ahead 30+ minutes on a Tuesday and 1hr on a Friday. Parking is easy in the front and side. Not really a sit-down restaurant, though they have two tables. Good stromboli and calzones.

    Urban Chestnut Grove Brewery and Bierhall

    Urban Chestnut Takeaway. Pizza, beer, and a modern dining palace. Pretzel bites with butter steal the show. 6.3 / 10 wood-fired pizza doesn't break The Flood Line. Fries are a 6.1 / 10.

    Super welcoming with wide open doors. A huge banquet hall dining area with large, beautiful fermenters in the background. Large open terrace in the back when it's warm enough. Smaller pub-style bar in the front. Janky little arcade and billiards cost a couple of doors each to play, but keep kids busy for a bit.

    Order at the front and they text you when ready. Took ~35 minutes to get pizza on a Friday night at 5:30 pm, better than the expected 45 minutes.

The Comparison Pizza

Costco Pizza

Costco Pizza Takeaway. Tastes like a Tuesday. The "everyman pizza". 5/10 pizza. A baseline pizza we can all compare against. Insane value at $10/pizza. Limited options with only cheese and pepperoni. Need to be a member. Parking is easy and convenient with the new UCity location off of I-170. Tip: Call ahead and order via the food court saves waiting there for 20+ minutes.
