The only people this backwards type of pizza appeals to are the people from the cultural wasteland known as St. Louis. By the way, the words "St. Louis", "elitist", and "urban" never belong in a sentence or discussion together. True, St. Louisans like to think they are elite and urban, but this is due to their major inferiority complexes. Anyone who asks you where you went to school as a way to get a conversation started has issues (and certainly wouldn't know what good pizza is).
St. Louis Style Pizza, no matter, how it is described, is awful (unless your culinary experience is limited to a small, forgettable town in the lower Midwest).
