I have some very exciting news to share with you – burger boy and I are bringing Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar to Mount Lawley!
We thought it was time to take the plunge and start our very own business especially now that we are over our honeymoon phase of marriage 🙂
burger boy being the burger and pizza lover he is (we have pizza most Friday nights and burgers every fortnight or so) was the first to know when Crust opened in Subiaco so off we went to see what it had to offer. And it didn’t disappoint – the crust was thin, there were just the right amount of toppings and best of all we could eat two pizzas between us and not feel that sickly oily feeling I get from eating traditional pizzas. The other thing which won us over was that the range of gourmet pizzas was different to anything we’ve had before. I’ve tried the Peking Duck, Wagyu Beef and Five Spice Pork Belly which all have amazing flavours and I recently discovered the Sausage Duo which is a tastier meat lover and now my favourite pizza. My family and burger boy on the other hand love the Szechuan Chilli Prawn which is nice but a bit too chilli for me – which my family finds completely odd as Asians love and can handle their chilli 🙂 even burger boy is more Asian than me!
So when deciding what we wanted to do, it was obvious that it would be something to do with food as we always seem to be eating and when we’re not eating we’re talking about food or writing about it here! And pizza or burgers were the key considerations…as we eat so much of it and as the plan was always for burger boy to manage our business full-time while I continued in my full-time role, it had to be something burger boy was madly passionate about.
After much research (mainly via eating), we decided Crust was the perfect fit and we couldn’t think of any better location than 5 minutes from home in the bustling heart of Mount Lawley 🙂
I can’t wait to share more as the empty shop on the corner of Walcott/Beaufort Street transforms into our new Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar – fingers crossed that it’ll be ready in time for the Beaufort Street Festival on the 12 November!
In the meantime, we’re looking for foodies to make and deliver delicious pizzas so if you know of anyone let me know! And if you’re on facebook, please like our new Crust Mount Lawley fan page 🙂 I’ll be posting some specials for Crust fans leading up to our launch.
