St. Louis Style Pizza


  • 1 thin yeast-free pizza crust check our site for a recipe
  • ¼ pound of shredded Provel cheese or a combination of swiss, cheddar, and provolone
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • toppings of your choice


  • To make the sauce, whisk the tomato sauce, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and sugar together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Shred your Provel cheese, or mix together 2 parts provolone cheese, one part cheddar cheese, one part swiss cheese, and a drop or two of liquid smoke if you have it.
  • Prepare your yeast-free thin crust and pre-bake the crust in a 425° oven until the edges just start to turn brown. Mine usually takes about 15 minutes to do so. Add your sauce and generously sprinkle your cheese and toppings on top. Give the pizza a final sprinkle of some oregano or homemade pizza seasoning and bake for an additional 10 minutes or so until the cheese starts to look golden brown. Cut the pizza into squares instead of triangles (it's the St. Louis way!) and enjoy!
