Food Review – St. Louis 11/08/09 by Ollie

I always get confused when I see signs for pie in America. I assume 
it's for like meat or fruit pies, but most of the time it seems to be 
for pizza pie. That's not pie!

So in St. Louis we passed a place called The Good Pie, I thought it 
was for pie until I saw it sold pizza. During soundcheck a couple of 
people went there and said it was good. As there wasn't much else 
around I decided to go back with them.

The menu was relatively small with about 10 different pizzas. I prefer 
small menus; it means you don't have to spend ages deciding and it 
will probably be better than a restaurant that has about 40 different 

Americans seem to have a deep fascination with cheese, but this 
margharita pizza appeared with a few slices of mozzarella. The base 
was very thin and had the consistency of a light bread with a burnt 
flavour from the oven. The tomato sauce was rich with a nice level of 
oregano, and it had a balanced consistency. It was topped with a fresh 
sprig of basil.

It was a very good pizza. We got talking to one of the waiters who 
asked for our opinion, and was very pleased to find out we enjoyed it. 
In the end we got free beers out of it in exchange for guestlists to 
the show. They enjoyed our show as well so a good night all round.

A “traditional” margherita pizza is topped with slices of ripe mozzarella/bocconcini cheese, and basil, from what I know. It looks like you got the real deal, there. 🙂

If you want good pizza when you come back to vancouver, try Uncle Fatih’s potato pizza. Soo good. Just ask anyone and they’ll point you in the right direction.
