Pizza Review St Louis


Riverfront Times 2012 Best of
St. Louis (Thin Crust) Pizza Winner

Peel Wood Fired Named Editorials Choice for Best (Thin Crust) Pizza for 2012

Brandon Case and Patrick Thirion, Chef-Owners of Peel Wood Fired Pizza in Edwardsville, Illinois are thrilled to announce that Peel has been named Best (Thin Crust) pizza by The Riverfront Times. You don't have to look very hard to find the secret to Peel Wood Fired Pizza's success. Really, you don't have to look at all. It's right there in the center of the kitchen, visible throughout the restaurant: the oven, which reaches temperatures of about 800 degrees, fueled by hardwood logs. This intense heat gives Peel's pies a gorgeous, gently blistered crust, its flavor lightly imbued with smoke, and it reduces the slabs of fresh mozzarella on the margherita pizza to beautifully molten puddles.

Peel Wood Fired Pizza was the 2012 Special Editors choice in St. Louis Magazine

Peel was chosen by St. Louis Magazines Main Editor, George Mahe, for the $$ category in the 2012 Best Restaurant Issue.

 

"Everything that Peel does—wood fired pizza, salads, sandwiches, wings, a ton of craft beers—it does so well that it doesn’t matter that the place is 45 minutes away. Still not convinced? Get in the car, I’ll drive."

-- George Mahe

Specialty Beers Reviews Metro East St LouisOktoberfest at Peel!


Tallgrass Zombie Monkie
Manhattan, Kansas
Zombie Monkie is a dark, rich porter, carefully brewed for the post-apocalyptic world to come. Crafted with lots of roasty dark chocolate and specialty malts, then inoculated with enough hops to add a floral/citrus character in the finish. It's hardy, complex, and interesting, because you might be drinking it for a long time.
$6.00

Paulaner Oktoberfest – Marzen
Munich, Germany
Amber in color with a rich creamy head, and a smooth, lightly hopped flavor.
$6.00

Urban Chestnut Oachkatzlschwoaf
St. Louis, Missouri
This “export” style lager, brewed their annual Oktoberfest celebration, is malty yet well balanced like the bier traditionally served at Oktoberfest in Munich. However, UCBC’s Festbier has a tale/tail of its own–Oachkatzlschwoaf (pronounced “o-cat-zel-schwof”) translated is “tail of a squirrel”…just a little Bavarian humor.
$7.00

Southern Tier Pumpking
Lakewood, New York
Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent. Pour Pumking into a goblet and allow it’s alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let it’s deep copper color entrance you as your journey into this mystical brew has just begun. As the first drops touch your tongue a magical spell will bewitch your taste buds making it difficult to escape the Pumking.
$7.00

Dogfish Head Punkin'
Milton, Delaware
A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with.
$7.00
