Pies come in many forms — sweet or savory, fruity or creamy, topped with a flaky crust or finished with a spiced crumble — that there is bound to be a perfect slice for every person looking for a delicious treat.

Using reviews, awards and accolades as well as first-hand experience, LoveFood chose to satisfy all foodies with a sweet tooth by compiling a list of the "best pie" served in each state, "from old-school classics to new creations and fruity regional favorites."

According to the site, the best pie in all of Missouri can be found at The Blue Owl Bakery outside of St. Louis, with the caramel apple pecan levee high pie being named the best of the best. This delicious pie is filled with apples, caramel and pecans piled high in a unique mountain-like design unlike any other. The Blue Owl Bakery is located at 6116 2nd Street in Kimmswick.

Here's what LoveFood had to say about the best pie in Missouri:

"Created in 1993 by The Blue Owl Bakery, the levee pie was made to resemble the levee mountains of gravel and sand that the town of Kimmswick used to save itself from a devastating flood. The pie is made with 18 hand-sliced apples stacked methodically and layered with cinnamon sugar. After baking, it's covered with buttery caramel and chopped pecan pieces, made to represent the sand and gravel of the levees."
