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


A special thanks to ALL of our customers for sharing meals at Peel with your family & friends. We truly appreciate your business!

Specialty Beers Reviews Metro East St LouisFeature Beers/Wines

Victory Prima Pils
Downingtown, Pennsylvania
Heaps of hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher.

UCBC Cuvee de Peche – Peach Lambic
St. Louis, Missouri
This sour treat was a blended (cuvée) of peach lambic and geuze that had aged in wood barrels for 5 months.  With a base of German pilsner malt and local raw wheat we added over 500 lbs of peaches from Hermans Farm Orchard (St. Charles) and aged hops for a secondary fermentation.

Goose Island 312 Urban Pale Ale
Chicago, Illinois
Goose Island constructed their Urban Pale Ale on a balanced malt backbone, so the citrus hop aroma and crisp flavor can stand tall.

Founder’s KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout)
Grand Rapids, Michigan
What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight.

Breckenridge NVP (Nitro Vanilla Porter)
Denver, Colorado
Deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grows the perfect ingredient for an extraordinary Porter brewed in Colorado. Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter. An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for
good measure.

UCBC De Grote Man - Belgian style Strong Ale
St. Louis, Missouri
Amber/Orange color, flavors of toffee, caramel, spice, dark fruit. In an attempt to surprise our brewmaster for his 40th birthday, we snuck in a giant during the holidays. We should have known that he’d be found out. A beer this big does not tread softly.

Breckenridge 72 Imperial – Chocolate Stout
Denver, Colorado
Brewed with chocolate from Colorado's very own Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Inc., this Imperial Chocolate Cream Stout is full of rich, toasted chocolate notes with hints of dark fruit. 72 Imperial will takeyou where you need to go. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Kona Koko Brown
Kailua Kona, Hawaii
The delicious heart of this island treasure has a nutty, toffee flavor and aroma that sends you straight to the beaches of Paradise. Kick back with a Koko Brown, brewed with real toasted coconut, and savor the mahogany color and smooth, roasty malt taste.

Victory Swing – Session Saison (Spring Seasonal)
Hopped with German and American hops. Spiced with peppercorns, orange peel and fresh lemon zest. Belgian saison yeasts.

Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale – American Brown with Hops
A cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale and an American Brown, Indian Brown Ale is well-hopped and malty at the same time.  This beer has characteristics of each style that inspired it: the color of an American Brown, the caramel notes of a Scotch Ale, and the hopping regimen of an India Pale Ale.
$6.00 / 16 oz Dogfish Pint Glass
