No disco Day of the Dead skulls this week! Instead, I visit the new Soulard joint Epic Pizza & Subs (1711 South 9th Street; 314-644-4430). A sneak preview of my review is after the jump.
"The Bradley" is unlike any other pizza in St. Louis. At first glance it seems normal enough: a thin, hand-tossed crust, fired in a brick oven and topped with cheese, red onion, herbs and crumbs of sausage. The cheese is Parmigiano-Reggiano, though, not mozzarella, and the herbs are neither oregano nor basil, the usual suspects, but rosemary.
And the sausage isn't sausage. It's not even meat. It's pistachio.
Check back here tomorrow morning for links to the complete review and a slideshow.
