Walking the streets of a quaint town with strong ties to its German heritage like Hermann, you’re probably not expecting to find an authentic, New York-style pizzeria. Since Hermann is full of surprises, however, you’ll find just that at 4th Street Pizza. Opened in 2016 by the Renders, a family of East Coast transplants craving the Big Apple’s famous pizza, 4th Street Pizza specializes in fresh ingredients and an authentic pizzeria experience. How is New York-style pizza different than your average pizza? Pizza from New York is known for its hand-tossed, dense and chewy crust that’s thin in the middle and gradually gets thicker at the edges. At 4th Street Pizza, each hearty slice features a bright, traditional tomato sauce, ample toppings, and fresh, gooey mozzarella melted on top.
4th Street Pizza’s “Pizza Master” and the Renders’ son, Nathan, can be seen tossing up made-from-scratch dough while you wait for your customized pizza. Although still a young man, Nathan began delivering pizzas and working in a St. Louis pizza kitchen at the age of 16. His experience and passion for creating great pizza can be tasted in every delicious bite!
The casual, family-friendly atmosphere of 4th Street Pizza perfectly embodies the spirit of a family-owned pizzeria, from the local artwork adorning the walls to the charming, red-checked tablecloths. While kids can delight in watching their made-to-order pizza being tossed, adults can enjoy a local or domestic beer or a glass of one of the Hermann-area’s renowned wines. With both dine-in and carry-out options, 4th Street Pizza is the perfect stop after a day exploring the Hermann area.
Quality ingredients you’ll be able to taste
Unlike the pizza you can pick up at the nearest chain restaurant or grocery store, 4th Street Pizza prides itself on using made-from-scratch ingredients. The pizzeria’s mouthwatering pizza dough is made fresh daily, along with the dough for appetizers and bread. The freshest ingredients are used for toppings and salads (you won’t find a piece of iceberg lettuce here!), and every sauce and dressing is made in-house (nothing from a jar!).
Though known for their delicious and meticulously-crafted pizzas, 4th Street Pizza also offers made-to-order pastas, like fettuccine alfredo or linguini with meatballs and marinara, and sub sandwiches, like the loaded Italian (hello, meat lovers!), traditional meatball, or chicken parmigiana. Their freshly-baked bread is the star of popular appetizers like warm and tangy pesto bread or gooey cheese bread. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for something fresh—their delectable salads feature the best greens, veggies, and house made dressings. Salads can also be made into hearty meals with the addition of grilled chicken, salami, or capicola ham.
The pizza you won’t soon forget
The perfect place for all cravings and appetites, 4th Street Pizza has options for everyone. Their pastas, salads, subs, and appetizers are popular among visitors and locals alike, but the real showstopper at 4th Street is their pizza. Focusing on perfectly-crafted and consistently-great pizza, the Renders’ tried and true recipes took years in the making. With options from their meaty deluxe to vegetarian pizzas to popular specialty pizzas like BBQ chicken, 4th Street Pizza has a pizza for anyone and everyone—they even offer gluten-free and vegan pizzas! Though they strongly recommend you take advantage of the chance to get an authentic, New York-style pizza in the middle of Missouri, they even make St. Louis-style pies for those wanting that crisp, crunchy crust.
4th Street Pizza takes their pizza-making seriously. Voted Best Pizza in Hermann by local residents and as the recipient of Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence 3 years in a row, this place is the real deal when it comes to pizza. You’ll be able to taste the care put into each of their well-thought-out recipes. Constantly fine-tuning their menu, the 4th Street Pizza crew often invites friends, family, and customers to taste-test new recipes!
