Pizza by the slice is a foreign concept in STL for some reason. It is really hard to come by! I was pretty excited when Manjelou’s Pizzeria opened up by work, but the menu looked kinda meat and cheese filled. Not that I expect every place to cater to my “difficult” diet, but I did avoid the place for awhile.

We ventured as a group on a weekday between Christmas and New Years. Which is why I’m thinking the place was dead. At least I hope so! I was back and forth on if I wanted to eat cheese or not. It was a workout evening and it would kill me. Unless I skipped my workout. Back and forth. When I set out to order, I was going to order a whole pizza myself because I didn’t want cheese in the end. I’m fine with leftovers. I can take it with me. No worries. It was only a 10″.

The girl at the register looked at me like I was an alien when I tried order. She told me they could just make me a slice of veggie without cheese, but she had to go double check. Wha? Seriously? The guy in the back (who is now my BFF) made me a single slice of veggie pizza WITHOUT cheese. Okay, I get they were not busy, but this was an amazing experience. I was super excited by the whole idea (and not having to spend $14 on a whole freaking pizza, though now I kinda want leftovers). They even apologized for the wait. Uh, you made it fresh. And it was good.

The crust was chewy and nice. The sauce was a tad sweet, but it was really tasty. And $6. That’s a bargain in Clayton. 2 of the girls got the veggie with cheese and it looked darn tasty. One got pepperoni and I snapped a pic for the husband. I’m pretty sure I’ll be back, I hope people find out about this place too!
