Twin Oak Pizza
Follow your nose to the drifting aroma wafting from a pizza cooking inside a brick oven. Step into a St. Louis pizzeria that adds brick-oven charm and flavor to its Italian fare. Brick ovens work in a way that evenly distributes heat, quickly cooking pizza in extremely high temperatures. This leaves the crust with crispy edges and a delectably soft and chewy center while lightly searing the toppings and trapping in the nutrients. Bite into the flavors of these top brick-oven pizzas in St. Louis.

Experience New Jersey without ever leaving St. Louis at Feraro’s Jersey Style Pizza. When Jon Feraro and his mom came to St. Louis, they brought their Jersey-style pizza with them. This pizza is served amidst an atmosphere accented with Jersey-inspired flare, from the background music to the names of the pizzas. Order The Soprano pizza for $27 which is topped with pepperoni, Italian sausage, meatballs, ham and smoked bacon. Leave the meat behind and order a Garden State veggie pizza for $26 or go without the red sauce with an Old Blue Eyes for $23 which is white pizza with ricotta, garlic, mozzarella and parmesan cheese spritzed with olive oil. The pizzas are thin crust and cooked inside a brick oven to maintain a soft center you can sink your teeth into, topped with a sweet red oregano-spiced sauce. Complete your meal with one of Feraro’s salads or a side of fries.

A’mi means “my friend,” and if you miss the friendships made back in your college days at Wash U on the corner of Skinker Boulevard, you’ll love the stained-glass window décor and some of the dining tables retained from the old Talayna’s Restaurant that now accents A’mis Italian Restaurant in Rock Hill. Choose your style with inspirations from New York, Chicago or St. Louis. A’mis Italian Restaurant fires up its pizzas in a brick oven and cooks your favorites until the cheese is melted to perfection. Meet new friends or share memories over a giant family-sized New York Manhattan Style Pizza for $16.95 before adding toppings for $2.15 each, or bite into St. Louis-style squares for $12.45 for a large pizza topped with melted mozzarella cheese.
