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 LouisFeature Beers/Wines

Founders Rubaeus-
Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandy—Rübæus is Founders’ way to celebrate the season’s warmest months. Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. No question about it, with a hefty malt bill and 5.7% ABV, this beer is 100% Founders.
$8.00

Bell's Hopsolution Ale – ABV: 8%
Falls roughly into the Double India Pale Ale category, incorporating
several modern hop varietals from the Pacific Northwest with classic noble hops from Germany to present a blend of fruity, citrus, and resinous pine aromas. A mild caramel malt character and dry finish provide the counterpoint to these hop notes.
$8.00

Kona Castaway IPA
NEW TO THE MAINLAND IN 2014
Take a sip of this copper-colored India Pale Ale and you’ll taste bold,
citrusy hops with a touch of tropical mango and passion fruit, balanced by the rich caramel malts. Castaway IPA has a clean, crisp finish that’s as refreshing as the wind in your face when you set sale for adventure.
$5.00

Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat Ale
Eureka, California
A refreshing citrus ale, Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat combines their Harvest Wheat with natural tangerine flavors.  Brewed with a combination of wheat and crystal malts, and finished with Perle hops.
$5.00

Kona Big Wave Golden Ale
Kailua Kona, Hawaii
Light, Balanced & Easy Going. The brewers wanted to make a beer that went down easy after a day out on the water. Big Wave Golden Ale is just the ticket. Big Wave is a lighter bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor – a smooth, easy drinking refreshing ale. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and our special blend of hops provides bright quenching finish.
$5.00
