I do not know about pizza in St. Louis.  But, when I came across your thread, I found this one adjacent to it:

Jeff,
I have not been. And this obviously nothing you prolly have not done already - but I looked and this was in Slice:
http://slice.seriouseats.com/archives/2009/12/the-good-pie-mixture-of-st-louis-and-naples-style-pizzas-mo.html
They said it's a guy from Sullivan Street Bakery and it was the only actual Neapolitan in the "city" at that time (2009 was a long time ago, clearly.)  Perhaps others here will recognize the name: "The Good Pie" and be inclined to comment on it for your reference.
Cheers,
Don
I have done wrong.. but what I did, I thought needed to be done.

Wow, thanks for the leg work Mitch and Don!  I feel lazy all I've had to do is book mark both places  :-D 
They both look tasty!  Don't know where I'm staying yet - probably hit the one that's closest to my hotel.

Thanks Tom!  I've been meaning to try a good flat cracker style like that.   In fact I want to try and make one at home soon. 

Appreciate your input!

Working here in St Louis.  Gonna try and hit up Imo or Pizzeoli if I get some free time.  Just had Bogart's BBQ with coworkers today.  Pretty darn good stuff.

If you are going to try St. Louis style pizza, then Imo's would be the place I would start with.  Let us know what you think.

Stopped bt Pizzeoli today in St. Louis and had a nice chat with the owner Scott.  He used to post a bit on the forum here.  I liked his pizza making philosophy very much - keep it simple and don't get too technical. 
The pie was a great tasting NP Margarita.  Nice flavor and good char.  Cooked in about a minute and a half.

(Hoping to get to try Imo's before I leave as it's the classic local pie with Provel.)

Here are a couple of pics I snapped at Pizzeoli:

Thanks for the hospitality Scott (and the iPhone charge :-D!)
