takeaway pizzas that I love aren't near enough to order home delivery. So I was excited when Crust Pizza opened up in our vicinity with a range of vegetarian options.
kitchen renovations. We weren't able to cook much so we had more takeaway than usual. Actually we might have even had one of their pizzas before that because I have a note and vague memories of an eggplant pizza but no photos and it is no longer on the Crust menu. However I can tell you about a few other veg pizzas that I have recorded.
Perhaps our different attitudes also come from our attitude to tomatoes. I hated them as a child but gradually have come to appreciate them as an adult. Sylvia loves tomatoes and will even sometimes eat them as a snack if I leave a bowl of cherry tomatoes about. When we watched the Sound of Music last night, she kept talking about the scene where Maria throws a tomato to Gretel who drops it. Does anyone else ever remember this scene! But I digress.
On the positive side, the toppings are generous and the crusts are nicely cooked. My favourite part was the little white table that kept the top of the box from pressing on the pizza. Isn't it cute? It looks like a little table in a doll's house and makes me want to make doll's house furniture.
There are a few other options I would like to try - the Florentine Ricotta, the healthy Baby Spinach pizza and the vegie calzone. However their menu does seem to change occasionally. The pizzas are not cheap ($16 for a large pizza) and they do not come in a small size, unless you buy the kiddie pizzas. So Crust is a good choice for a treat but will not become a regular meal in our house.
