'St. Louis Square Off' Vows to Determine the Best St. Louis-Style Pizza


If your dream pizza comes with a cracker-thin crust, a mound of gooey Provel and, yes, squares instead of slices, you'll want to get to the Hill this fall.

St. Louis' old-school Italian neighborhood will be hosting a festival to determine the very best St. Louis-style pizza around: the St. Louis Square Off.

For $25, attendees will get to sample eight different pies, and then help determine who goes home with bragging rights. Each ticket also includes a glass of wine or a beer.

And that's not all. Per the founders,
There will be music, activities for kids, art, local retailers and plenty of samples of other staples of St. Louis' amazing food history (looking at you t-ravs and gooey butter cake!).
The event goes down in Berra Park on Sunday, October 8. So hey! If you've been spending all your free time in the RFT's comment section, praising (or blasting) Imo's, whatever the case may be, here's a chance to let your voice really be heard. Remember, you can only complain about the outcome if you bother to vote.

Tickets benefit Hill 2000, the neighborhood's association.
