Crust Pizza in Canberra?

By jenny123 - 22 July 2010 67

On the way home from work I noticed a new pizza place opened at erindale, crust pizza.

I had a look online and it seemed pretty expensive for takeaway pizza averaging around $20 a pizza, I know there are a few north side are they any good??

What’s Your opinion?

They’ve been around since late last year. And yes, their pizzas (especially the gourmet ones) are very, very, very nice.

Cheap delivery too – around $2 (if I remember correctly) if you live it inner north.

They certainly are. They aren’t top shelf, but they are the best pizza I’ve had in Canberra, and I’ve been looking for years =/

Maybe I’m just a skinflint but I can make a nicer pizza at home for $5. I guess Crust is ok if you have money to burn but in all honesty they aren’t that much better than Zeff’s IMHO.

Since returning to Canberra from Brisbane, I’ve noticed that there’s two categories of food where Canberra loses out to Brisbane – pizza, and fish & chips. Canberra blitzes every other category, especially the Asian styles of restaurants.
Crust rectifies one of Canberra’s weaknesses, coz their pizza is pretty awesome.
Their peri peri chicken pizza is especially nice.

Hrm. I thought this was just the Italian Grill under a different name. Will check it out tomorrow. Best pizza in Canberra is quite a claim!

They’re very, very nice. I’ve had a few from the Belconnen shop and the only one that didn’t work for me was one with ‘baked’ potato on it (it wasn’t cooked long enough, though it might have been a one-off). If you’re cashed up and going to get takeaway pizza anyway (as a treat, rather than a 2-minute noodle alternative), it’s very good. The larger size was too much for me and my hubby to get through.

Also, their chocolate mouse is made with mostly cream and is highly fatal!

$20 for a gourmet pizza is cheaper than $700 for a pizza oven you only use four times a year :)

The best pizza I ever tasted was at Earth and Sea Pizza in Byron Bay, January 1985. I haven’t been to Byron since. No doubt Earth and Sea is now long gone as the town transformed into a millionaire’s playground over the following years (thanks for nothing Hoges and Strop).

I wasn’t impressed at all. I ordered a Hawiian last night. Waaay too much pizza sauce on the base. Chipped a tooth on an olive pip (go figure that one out!) SFA ham. Cheese was bland and bordering on insipid … most gourmet pizza outlets use a blend of cheeses rather than just boring old Mozarella. I’ll be sticking to APK and La Porcetta.

Perhaps my expectations from a gourmet pizza outlet are unreasonable … or I just got a dud???

Godot – completely offtopic, but I believe the Earth & Sea pizza people shifted north to Noosa. Never tried it, but that was the story I heard when I was up that way.
OzChick – Capers is the one I was thinking when I mentioned Brisbane having better pizza than Canberra. If it’s as good as the ones up north, I’ll be glad to see it spread through Canberra too. Their reef & beef pizza with hollandaise sauce is a weird combination of ingredients, but is the best pizza I’ve ever had.

Crust is the best in canberra for pizzas (other than homemade of course). Especially the healthy tick pizzas!
