Papi's Pizza, Subs and Ice Cream.

New to the St Louis pizza scene, Papi's Pizza opened for business earlier this year in Wildwood, MO and looks to be a locally owned and operated pizza joint.  Their menu includes Appetizers, Salads, Sandwich's, Brick Oven Pizza and Desserts (including 11 flavors of Ice Cream).  Their pizza's are hand tossed and come with Mozzarella cheese.  They have a good selection of toppings including: meatballs, red onions, artichoke and shrimp to name a few.  Aside from the standard Mozzarella you can also get cheddar, feta, Ricotta, Parmesan, and Provolone cheese's.

On this visit we started with a side salad with BBQ ranch dressing.  The salad consisted of Iceberg & Romain lettuce, spinach, mozzarella, tomatoes and onions.  It was a very good start to the meal.

The first pizza was a 12" cheese.  My fellow pizza eater (6 yr old daughter) found it so good that she refused to share a slice with me.  I was able to negotiate a single bite, but was not allowed to touch the slice with my hands.

We also got a 14" with pepperoni, meatball, ham and red onion.  The hand tossed crust was very good, it had a nice texture and did a good job holding up the rest of the ingredients.  The tip was just a little soft and the edge just a little crispy.  The toppings were all very good and generously applied.  I was especially happy to see meatballs and red onions on the menu.  The only check against was that the menu says red onions and I asked for red onions, but it looked like it came with onions of the white variety, it was hard to tell, not a deal breaker by any means.  I can also report that the left over pizza did very well in the toaster oven the next morning.

Overall I was very pleased with the food and service at Papi's, so if you find your self in Wildwood and have a craving for good pizza give them a try, heck don't wait until you until find your self there, make it a road trip.  I will return and on my next visit I'm getting a scoop of ice cream.  Papi's Pizza is located at 17209 New Collage Ave in Wildwood, MO. You can reach them at (636) 458-1313 or check out their web-site by clicking the title link.

Highly Recommended.
