The Good Pie

6665 Delmar Boulevard University City, MO 63130 | Delmar/ The Loop | 314-899-9221

Location Description:

If a trip to Naples isn’t in the cards, one can sate a craving for classic Neapolitan-style pizza at the Good Pie. The Delmar Loop pizzeria churns out traditional pies, creative specialties and a small selection of housemade pastas. On any given night, patrons can peer into the open kitchen to see the chefs stoking the fire of its authentic wood-burning oven, kept so hot that the pizzas cook in mere minutes. Purists will be satisfied with the margherita pizza, D.O.P., simply prepared in the classic fashion with just-crushed San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and a few sprigs of fresh basil. Also noteworthy is the prosciutto arugula pizza — an unsauced pie covered with fresh mozzarella, arugula and a generous portion of the Italian ham. Diners shouldn't pass on the housemade pastas. The selection is small, but what it lacks in breadth it makes up for in quality. The delicate gnocchi, made with blue cheese, cherries, toasted pecans and brown butter, is exceptional.
