Though they all begin with similar hunks of dough, the pizzas at Manhattan Express rarely wind up resembling one another. To start, chefs prepare thin crusts, whole-wheat crusts, or New York-style crusts to serve as the foundation for any of their 9-, 12-, or 16-inch pies. On top of that, they pile your choice of 25 toppings, from jalapeno peppers and shrimp to low-fat mozzarella cut in the shape of mushrooms. Pizzeria staples such as sandwiches, salads, and pastas round out Manhattan Express' savories and dessert options include eight flavors of snow cones, such as cherry and orange.

Since 1981, the pizza specialists at Elicia's Pizza have zipped through St. Louis's tangled roads delivering piping-hot pies to households in 30 minutes or less. At the shop, marinara masters stretch house-made dough into the shape of a mad professor's monocle and lavish each thin-crust disk with fresh sauce and the house's three-cheese blend. Additionally, the pizzeria's menu celebrates casual eats, such as wings, baked pastas, sandwiches, and crisp salads.

When founders J. Kim Tucci, Joseph A. Fresta, and John P. Ferrara first opened The Pasta House Co. in 1974, they wanted to elevate pasta to an art form. “Some artists sculpt, some paint, and some sketch,” they write on the restaurant’s website. “But, at The Pasta House Co., we create authentic Italian culinary delights.” A few of the locations even have giant, exhibition kitchens so you can watch as pizzas, pastas, and entrees come to life.

Naturally, The Pasta House Co.’s menu revolves around the Italian staple from which it gets its name. There are more than 25 varieties of pasta to choose from, including linguine with chicken livers and the signature lasagna, plus weekday specials such as stuffed manicotti. Meanwhile, the mangia bene menu—which translates to “eat well” in Italian—showcases the more wholesome side of Italian eating, with dishes low in fat and calories that won’t peer pressure you to break curfew.

At Pizza Express, cooks toss yeast-free dough into skinny discs, topping it with the St. Louis's signature provel cheese that melts into a delightfully molten and not-at-all-stringy thing of beauty inside the oven. Alongside their pizzas, they bread, fry, and toss wings in any one of a dozen sauces, ranging from classic buffalo to exotic habanero-mango BBQ, which is served in a grass skirt. Pizza Express also serves up salads, hot sandwiches, and a variety of desserts and hand-spun shakes.
