Pie Guy Pizza

Pie Guy Pizza is a charming name for a pizzeria, with an every-person quality befitting a restaurant open until 3:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. What are we going to eat this late? A slice from the Pie Guy, of course. The name is also sneakily audacious: When it comes to pizza, this guy here is the guy. And owner Mitch Frost is making a strong claim to being one of St. Louis' top pie guys. His New York-style crust and sauce are top-notch, the former a hand-tossed dough (imported Caputo flour and sourdough starter) that has been cold-fermented for three days. Add cheese and quality toppings (especially sausage made with pork from Such and Such Farm), and Pie Guy will be your guy at hours regular and not.

Hours: 4:30-midnight Tuesday, 11:30 a.m.-midnight Wednesday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m.-3:30 a.m. Friday-Saturday (closed Sunday-Monday)
