In charming Cottleville, Missouri, just a 40-minute drive from Downtown St. Louis, Plank Road Pizza serves classic pies made with originality. Using high-quality, local ingredients, the pizzas at Plank Road combine fresh dough, sauce prepared in-house each day and toppings such as seasoned roasted chicken, smoked bacon or slow-roasted pulled pork, and sets them off with a sprinkling of raw elements including sliced avocado, celery or fresh basil. An artful drizzle of ranch, Sriracha or barbecue sauce provides the finishing touch. The pizzas feature familiar toppings like the meatballs on The Boones Lick or the buffalo chicken on The St. Charles Street, but have a one-of-a-kind feel with the purposeful and balanced mix of toppings.
If you manage to tear your eyes from the tasty pies, look up, all the way up, to the exposed beams of the original structure, which is one of the oldest in Cottleville. The booth seating inside the rustic-meets-modern space is made from the floor of the building’s former attic, and the accent woodwork throughout the dining rooms was made with wood from a local barn. St. Louis brews including Schlafly Beer and selections from 4 Hands Brewing Co. are on tap, and tea and coffee are supplied by locally owned Thomas Coffee Co.
