Riverfront Times readers rated the Soulard pizza spot above U City's La Pizza in both thick and thin crust categories. Do you demand a recount?
RFT readers chose La Pizza as one of the St. Louis area's best pizza makers, the publication revealed in its Restaurants 2013 guide. The U City restaurant ranked in the top five for Favorite Thick Crust and Thin Crust pizzas, placing third and second, respectively. Why didn't it place any higher? Blame Joanie's Pizza, with spaces in Soulard and Oakville. While Tower Grove’s Blackthorn Pub took the prize for Favorite Thick Crust, Joanie’s was named the Favorite Thin Crust and second Favorite Thick Crust. Rankings were determined by reader votes, according to RFT. Both La Pizza and Joanie's offer several sandwich and salad options (not to mention awesome lunch specials). Do you think La Pizza should have ranked above the rest? Who makes …

University City's Pi Pizzeria is the first Missouri restaurant to start Meatless Mondays, the international campaign for veggie-only dishes once a week.
Pi Pizzeria is the first restaurant in the state of Missouri to adopt Meatless Mondays, an international campaign to cut meat consumption once a week. The concept may sound unusual, especially since pepperoni has long been America’s documented favorite pizza topping, but going meatless on Mondays has a long history in the U.S. During World War I, Herbert Hoover, then head of the U.S. Food Administration, campaigned for families to limit consumption of scarce items—including meat—so there’d be enough for the troops. A Saturday Evening Post article in 1929 reported on the movement: “Americans began to look seriously into the question of what and how much they were eating. Lots of people discovered for the first time that they could eat less …
