Pi, St Louis, MO

On our last evening in St Louis, Anthony Rapp treated us to delicious thin crust and deep dish pizza at his friend's restaurant Pi.

Pi is well known for their deep dish cornmeal crusted pizzas. Also, with their motto being "doing good while doing well", a percentage of their profits go to different environmental, social and humanitarian groups while operating an ecologically sustainable pizza restaurant...meeting the needs of the present without compromising the future generation's needs.

Rent cast members Adam Halpin and Nicolette Hart scarf down the pizza!

East Loop - mozzarella, pesto, roasted chicken, mushrooms, onions.

North Beach Classico - mozzarella, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green bell peppers.

Anthony Rapp with friend and owner of Pi, Chris Sommers. The Pizza at Pi was so good that President Obama invited Chris to the White House to make his signature pizzas. Talk about pizza delivery! Obama met Chris in St Louis while on his campaign tour...He declared Pi the best pizza he's had! Read the story here.

Bucktown - mozzarella, roasted chicken, artichoke hearts, red bell peppers,
green olives, red onions, feta, sun-dried tomato.

Now, I LOVE pizza. Not only did I indulge multiple times at Pizano's in Chicago, but I live right off Bleecker street in the west village of NYC and have some of the countries best pizza right on my block. Pi's pizza definitely leads the competition! Why? First of all, the cornmeal crust gives such a crispness and crunch to the pizza that is unforgettable, while not feeling to heavy as a lot of deep dish pizzas can be. Also, You can tell they use quality ingredients for the toppings. Everything was fresh and perfectly arranged.....burst's of flavor at every bite. mmmmmm......what's your favorite pizza?

  2. Oh my goodness, that pizza looks soooo amazing!!!!!
    When I'm in St. Louis (whenever that is), I will definately have to check that place out!

  3. Looks delicious. I just ate lunch and I'm hungry again!!

    I love the fact that they're giving back to good causes along with running their business. And the geek in me really gets a kick out of how they've incorporated the whole Pi thing into their business -- very cool!

  4. Looks yummy!! Loove the very first pic of Anthony! Haha. Hope you guys are having a blast!
    My fave pizza is cheese with mushroom, onions, green peppers, and black olives and my fave pizza place is Baraccos in Chicago. =]

  5. Looks like you guys had a ton of fun. That pizza looks absolutely DELICIOUS!
    Hmmm, my favorite pizza is with pineapple. But I also love basil pesto and tomato pizza.

    Have fun in Seattle! I'm sure you'll have lots of great food there too.

  6. There's actually a few great pizza places in NJ (stop by sometime, I'll take u on a pizza place tour :-P). My favorite toppings though: either White (mozz. cheese, and roggotta cheese-no sauce), or sausage pizza :D
