I am always on the hunt for pizza perfection. For me, this recipe might be it. This was the first time that I tried St. Louis Style Pizza, and it was fabulous!  We both love thin crust pizza and this pizza is cracker thin.  What makes St. Louis style pizza unique is the cheese.  It uses Provel cheese instead of mozzarella.  Provel isn’t common in Alabama, so I used a facsimile of white cheddar, swiss, provolone and liquid smoke.  I was hesitant to try it, but I am so glad I did.  It was SO, SO good!!  It really makes the pizza.  I’ve made this pizza numerous times in the last few weeks.  We just can’t get enough of it!  It is our favorite pizza – anywhere.

  1. Yay for St. Louis pizza love! I admit that being in St. Louis I'm totally spoiled, but it really is an amazing pizza, isn't it?! And, serve it with Toasted Ravioli and follow up with some Gooey Butter cake and you'll have St. Louis ready meal!!

  2. What brand of pizza sauce do you prefer? I find that is the one thing that I have the most trouble reproducing when I make pizza at home.

  3. we live in St. Louis and STL style pizza is always a great debate…people either love it or hate it! I don't mind it, esp the cracker thin crust! Yours looks spot on!

  4. I have never used the liquid smoke for anything but BBQ. Interesting twist….what if you dont have a pizza stone? same temp on pan?

  5. I'm curious, where in St. Louis did you try your pizza? I live in St. Louis and there are some good and not so good versions of this pizza.

  6. As a St. Louisan I'm very happy to see St. Louis style pizza being enjoyed in other places! I work for a local grocery store chain and we often have people buying Provel in 5lb blocks to ship back home. Let me know if you would like some!

  7. This looks so good! What kind of pizza sauce do you like? I can never find any that tastes like a restaurant sauce.

  8. This looks so good! We make pizza every Friday…maybe this will be the one for this week! I'll let you know how it comes out 🙂
