burger boy and I are bringing Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar to Mount Lawley


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.


About Author

I have foodie cravings all the time and sometimes at very odd hours, hence the name of this food blog, where I share my love for food and appliances that save me time in the kitchen. I also own Crust Mount Lawley with my burger eating half burger boy and am a mum to two girls - junior burger and baby cravings.


  1. Im not even joking, I wanna come and work in your pizza bar... I would love to see how the business starts up, what kinda teething probs come up, how to fix them, as well as make delicious pizzas (we also have pizzas pretty often, homemade of course!). Congrats of course, are also in order! Must be so exciting!
    • Sure thing Jacqui, send us your resume & availability to mountlawley@crust.com.au :) Love your approach - no better way to learn than through practical experience. Thanks so much :) we are very very excited!!

    That's freaking exciting Mich had no idea you were opening it up in Mt Lawley! I love Crust in Subi :D how exciting, congrats babe! Xxx
  3. Congratulations on starting your own business! I will have to tell my husband - he loves pizza and will drive anywhere for it. Which part of the Beaufort/Walcott intersection will you be on?
    • Thanks Lauren! burger boy & I are the same. We'll drive anywhere for a quality feed :) and especially in search for the best burgers in Perth! Our Crust will be next to Swish & Chips & Dome. It used to be the home and heart boutique homewares store.
    • Thanks Kanni! Will def let everyone know when we have a firm opening date...burger boy & the other crust guys are managing the fitout so I'm pushing for it to be ready before the beaufort st festival :)
  4. Oh, wow!!! How exciting - we have one down the rd from us (canning vale) but haven't tried it yet. The menu has been stuck to the fridge since we got it in the post a couple of months ago as the pizza sounds so tasty! (there are no other fast food type menus on our fridge, must say something!) best of luck :)
      • We will definitely be trying it - the only reason we haven't already is that we've been busy preparing for a body building competition and pizza doesn't really fit into the diet :P I'm sure we can make the trip to mt lawley to support your shop....educational comparison reason of course :P
  5. Thx Mona & Wen :) yup Mount Lawley is just perfect, we're stoked with the location & so good that it's close to home. Means I could go to work, go home, perhaps do a hour or two at Crust and still be able to go home and sleep at a decent time.
  6. exciting news! and to have it open in time for the Beaufort St Festival will be great exposure for you guys :D good luck and we look forward to becoming your frequent customers :)
  7. Congratulations! I'm very impressed that you both put your passion for food into a business venture! Very inspiring actually. I would love to do something similar in the future. Hope all the planning is going well! I'm sure it will be really successful & a welcome addition to the Mt. Lawley area.
  8. That is a great idea for a business. It is so exciting to be doing something you love. The menu sounds delicious. I can't wait to visit your shop.
    • Thanks Brian, we are stoked to have found our perfect fit. We love pizzas and the Crust culture is awesome - very friendly & family oriented :) burger boy and I look forward to seeing you when we open!
