Here comes a new pizza challenger!
St. Louis Style Pizza? What does that pizza do to define itself? Arch its back? Provide a gateway and transition point to western pizza? Judging by the Italian man on the box, the mustaches are pointier in that region which denotes two things:
- Less chance of hair in your pie. This can be good or bad depending on how much hair you love in your pizza.
- With a tamed and refined mustache, you can extrapolate that their pizza follows the same principle. Their pizza has carefully measured amounts of cheese, sauce, and crust. Along the walls of the pizza shop are maps, and charts containing the secret formula to the St. Louis formula.
St. Louis style pizza has been around since at least 1964, judging from the box. You know what else began in 1964? Beatle Mania. St. Louis pizza was probably a crude attempt to lure the Beatles away from the coast and into the heartland of America. Unfortunately, the Beatles never acquired a taste for the Italian delicacy or else we’d have songs like “I Am the Pizza."
