Did you know that today is National Cheese Pizza Day? We didn't, but only because pizza is our default food, so every day has the potential to be Cheese Pizza Day.

View a slideshow of delicious cheese pizzas from across the country.

The occasion seems right to ask the question that has been looming over Gut Check ever since we began this Underrated/Overrated business: What is St. Louis' most underrated pizza?

You know the procedure by now: Nominate your choice for St. Louis' most underrated pizza in the comments. Be sure to include an explanation of why this pizza is underrated and deserving of wider praise. Any kind of pizza qualifies: thin-crust or deep-dish, even, yes, St. Louis-style.

We'll look over the nominations this time next week and assemble a list of semifinalists.
