Feraro's in Affton is my Affton favorite. It's Jersey style... which I have never really been a fan of. I tried it once after I moved to the area, because I didn't want a chain pizza, and have been hooked ever since. They are located at 21/ Baptist Church. Not a lot of room to eat inside, so it's mainly takeout or delivery. Good stuff !!

Imo's pizza in Webster Groves........ Thin crust, and always lottsa meat !! Salads are good too, with the sweet/sour Italian dressing.

This is a no-brainer! I love Joanie's Pizza! They just moved to South County and took over the Best Pizza title. Go Joanie's!!!

Bellacino's Pizza and Grinders at 3484 Jeffco in Arnold. Very good pizza. I miss the local Fortell's though. They were second best.

I'm a fan of Bommarito's Pizza on Gravois. We did an article on them last spring! http://affton.patch.com/articles/pizzeria-owner-finds-success-through-family-attitude

For me, Pizza World in Maplewood is the absolute best!
Joe Pfister December 06, 2011 at 08:28 PM
I've always been an Imo's fan, BUT the one on Reavis Barracks is pretty bad. I've recently found St. Louis Pizza and Wings is similar (STL Style Pizza) and AMAZING! They get my vote!
Beth Johnston December 06, 2011 at 10:04 PM
Fortels, hands down!
Golf Discount of St. Louis December 06, 2011 at 10:58 PM
Come on now....It's got to be Montebello's on Weber in Lemay is by far the best. The cook isn't a day over 98 and still kicking!

Joey B's has really good pizza!
Sharon Forsythe December 07, 2011 at 03:00 AM
Fortels is the best!
Jeanbean December 07, 2011 at 03:41 AM
FORTELS gets my vote!
Nancy Lupo December 07, 2011 at 04:31 PM

Beth Musgrove December 07, 2011 at 05:46 PM
Smugalas! Best pizza - best service!
Jo Hart December 07, 2011 at 06:43 PM
So tough! There are many different styles of pizza! I can't choose between Fortels and Gianino's on Lindbergh near Watson - they are different styles and I love them both the BEST!! They BOTH get my vote!
Tina Barker Clark December 07, 2011 at 08:01 PM
St. Louis Pizza and Wings on Telegraph!! The best! And everyone that works there is so nice! We recently tried the new Joanies, and we were VERY disappointed.

Love Love That'sa Nice'a Pizza in Arnold at Richardson Road, I have been a thin crust lover forever and That'sa Nice'a Pizza is leaps and bounds above the "Square Beyond Compare." The sauce and cheese is perfect. A must have is the Veggie but when I cheat I love the Powerhouse Meat and Jalapenos! The menu is quite extensive and we have never had anything bad from the off pizza menu. The salad and dressing rock... I could go on and on but do yourself a favor and drive a few extra miles and pick one up for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

Austin Basler December 07, 2011 at 10:36 PM

That's a Nice'a in Arnold off richardson hands down so many great specialty pizzas and the best sandwich to.(fire in the hole) Owners very friendly and all employees are as well. Wish I lived closer but it is worth the extra 5 minute drive.

My wife use to only eat Imo's pizza until a little place opened up juat a couple of blocks from us. MCLAIN'S BBQ AND PIZZA is located at 1200 Teleggraph Road...a little building on the corner of Telegraph Road and Regina Road...the little building with green siding. I have tried a lot of pizza joints in my time, but this place has the best Sausage pizza I have ever eaten. My wife and I have NOT had Imo's since McLain's opened up a little over a year ago! In fact, we have not had ANY pizza other than McLain's!
Scorpion February 27, 2012 at 08:35 PM
Yes, Jim OLeary...Pizza World is great too!
