Epic Pizza and Subs, St. Louis, MO – Vampires Beware!

“We’ve got a wood-burning pizza oven in the garden – a luxury, I know, but it’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made.” ~ Gwyneth Paltrow

Maybe not all of us have that luxury, but knowing where to get a good pizza cooked in a wood burning oven is a necessity.  This weekend, I went back to a favorite pizza place of mine in the Soulard area, Epic Pizza and Subs.

I love to walk around Soulard Market and find fresh ingredients for cooking.  One of my tricks for not over-buying is to shop Soulard while snacking on Epic Pizza’s garlic knots.  Pair them with a nice cold beer and you have a great way to spend part of your Saturday.

You can get them served with marinara or butter. They have a nice crisp outside and a soft doughy center.  You definitely enjoy the garlic but it isn’t overpowering.

During my last visit, I also ordered a white pizza:

Their white pizza is extra virgin olive oil, diced garlic, grande Mozzarella, and ricotta cheese.  They do not skimp on the cheese, check this out:

The hand tossed crust is thin but has a little crunch to it from the wood burning oven.  As you can see it’s no match for the toppings that cause it to collapse.  It’s a cheese lovers dream!  Between the garlic in the knots and the garlic on this pizza, I’m pretty sure that I won’t have any issues with vampires in my near future.  This is not a first date place if you are hoping for that first kiss :)

Typically I do not eat pizza bones.  If you are unfamiliar with the term. pizza bones are the extreme outer crust that is usually rock hard.  When I have pizza delivered, my dogs get to enjoy this leftover “treat”.  However when it comes to Epic’s pizza, my dogs would end up very sad.  I eat the whole slice.  Although crispy, the crust still has great flavor and a nice chew.

Epic Pizza and Subs continues to crank out great pizzas and appetizers.  I have not tried a burger or sandwich yet, but may have to on a future visit.  I have a hard time straying from my two favorites, the garlic knots and the white pizza.

Dive 2 Five Scale: Another 3.  Great interior and family friendly.  The staff was very helpful and attentive.  There were 3 different people coming by to check on the table.  It’s in a great location right next to iTap.  It is Soulard, so street parking can be challenging.
