Sure — pizza is simple in its basic form; pizza dough, tomato sauce and cheese comprise most pies out there. However, with a little finesse and a lot of creativity, this simple dish can be transformed into an extravagant array of flavors. When you’re looking for a pizza in St. Louis that will knock your socks off, give these places a try. - Stephanie Shepard 

Pi

6144 Delmar Boulevard
St. Louis, MO 63122
(314) 727-6633 (for Delmar location only)
www.restaurantpi.com

This home of Chicago-style pizza is turning heads left and right; President Obama even declared it his favorite pizza. But don’t take his word for it — try it out for yourself. With four locations in St. Louis, Pi is quickly expanding in the local area; however, its original location on the Delmar Loop is our favorite. Try the Lincoln Park thin crust pizza; this pie is named after a Chicago suburb and contains mozzarella, garlic olive oil, zucchini, fresh tomatoes, feta and basil.

Pointer’s Pizza

Saint Louis, Mo. 63117

With fresh ingredients like pine nuts, fontina and even prosciutto, it’s easy to see why Katie’s Pizzeria Café has garnered so much local attention.
