La Pizza

8137 Delmar University City, MO 63130 | University City | 314-725-1230

Location Description:

Simply put: La Pizza offers some of the best pizza you'll ever sink your teeth into. Everything in this small restaurant is house-made, from the meatballs to the lasagna noodles. The pizza dough is fluffy, crisp and hand-tossed. The mozzarella is 100 percent whole-milk cheese -- which means no oil dripping down your arm here. The owners are alums of Bob's Seafood, so you can top your pie with lobster, crab, shrimp and even salmon -- call ahead, though. Or try stromboli, calzone, a sausage roll or a hero sandwich made with fresh bread. The place has only four tables, but it's worth hanging around to watch the kitchen in action.
