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 LouisIt's St. Louis Craft Beer Week at Peel

 Schlafly Helles Style Summer Lager
The German word “Helles” translates as “light” and “Lager” means “to store”. This beer style emerged in Germany through the Spaten Brewery’s marriage of British, Bohemian and German brewing techniques. This style is an integral part of brewing history and a predecessor of the straw-colored, light bodied beers which are the most widely consumed beers in the world today. The lager yeast ferments the beer more slowly and at lower temperatures; it is then stored for maturation. This results in a beer which is more smooth and drinkable. Today, many American craft brewers offer this style as a maltier and hoppier alternative to American light lagers.
$5.00 / Peel Pint

Urban Chestnut BAP
The classic style (Kӧlsch) from Cologne, named after the most famous rock band to write their lyrics in Kӧlsch . This warm filtered ale is cold conditioned so that it takes on the characteristics of a lager.
$6.00 / Peel Pint

Urban Chestnut Mercator
Gerardus Mercator was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician, best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 – let’s just say he got around…so did this Flemish Red. From the brewhaus, to the fermenter, to some barrels we had sitting around – this bier was quite an adventure.
$7.00 / 12oz. Tulip

Perennial Woodside Honey Tripel
A traditional Tripel brewed with sugar to increase the alcohol content, but to also keep the body low and dry. We used traditional candy sugar as well as the honey.
$8.00 / 12oz. Tulip
