Schlafly Bottleworks February 2012, Birthday Pizza.
It is that time of year when the Chief Pizza Eater gets to be another year older, rounder and shorter. That means birthday pizza.
I had a couple of places in mind, but one was surrounded by the Mardi Gras celebration and the other I found out was no longer in business. So after a bit of back and fourth I decided on Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, MO.
I have reported on Schlafly Bottleworks a couple of times in the past so I won't bore you with all the details. As in the past the food and service was excellent.
I ordered a Bison, pepperoni and red onion pizza with the house blend cheese and on their hand tossed Pilsner dough crust and it was delicious. (WARNING, non-pizza content!) Just to mix things up Mrs. Chief Pizza Eater ordered the Meatloaf. I have tried unsuccessfully several times to order the Meatloaf only to be told, sorry we only serve it during supper, or sorry we have already sold out of the Meatloaf, etc. So of course the day I want to order pizza they have plenty of meatloaf, it was also excellent. For dessert the table of 11 mostly non-pizza eaters shared a Sticky Toffee Pudding. There just isn't much better way to end a birthday meal that the Sticky Toffee Pudding.
