Peel Wood Fired Pizza

921 S. Arbor Vitae Edwardsville, IL 62025 | Collinsville/ Edwardsville | 618-659-8561

Location Description:

A wood-burning oven is the centerpiece of this restaurant, quite popular in Edwardsville and worth the trip across the river from St. Louis. From that oven come thin-crust pizzas both simple and sophisticated. The "Prosciutto" is an elegant pie with fingerling potatoes, roasted garlic and rosemary joining the cured pork. The "Jerk Chicken" is more playful, a tasty variation on barbecue-chicken pizza. The wings, roasted in the oven, are excellent, whether as an appetizer or an entrée.
