1. Pizza Head
Scott Sandler started Pizza Head with the idea of serving a really great vegetarian 20-inch New York style pizza. He combined this idea with a DIY service model and a jukebox that plays all punk music. All meats here are vegan and they offer a vegan cashew cheese too. They feature live punk shows each month, and are open Tuesday - Sunday.
Pizza Head - 3196 S Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63118
2. Epic Pizza and Subs
To be truly epic you have to do things a little differently. In St. Louis that means topping a pizza with buffalo milk mozzarella. Softer than our standard Provel, with a familiar rich flavor, the buffalo milk mozzarella must be tasted to understand how incredible it is.
Epic Pizza and Subs - 1711 S 9th St, St. Louis, MO 63104
3. Pi Pizzeria
Going for depth, Pi Pizzeria has perfected the deep dish pizza pie. They serve a unique cornmeal crust that is buttery, light, and designed to hold all of your favorite toppings.
