April 9, 2010: Crust Pizza II

After three weeks eating all manner of delicious Japanese, Malay, Indian and Chinese food, the food delivery option that Cindy and I could agree on for our first night back in Australia was pizza. After our last visit, we settled on Crust as our local purveyor of home-delivered goodness, so they were the first people we called when we arrived back in the country (sorry friends and family!).

Last time we posted, both Ruth and pfctdayelise highly recommended the vegie supreme (see above), so it our first choice for the evening. There was much to like about it, not least the pesto aioli, which was the star of the show, but not to the detriment of the sun-dried tomatoes, eggplant and artichoke. Perfect welcome-home food.

Cindy was also keen to try the samosa calzone, a pizza parcel filled with a chickpea curry, nuts and shallots.

This was adequate without being particularly amazing - let's just say that Cindy throws together much tastier pastry parcels out of our leftover curries. Crust wasn't a particularly classy return to Melbourne food, but when you get home late and your fridge is empty, it's well worth giving them a ring.

  1. Hey the link in the last paragraph to you previous Crust delivery entry is broken!

  2. Thanks - it should be fixed now. :-)

  3. Actually, I would recommend going a few blocks away to Pizza Capers. I've given Crust several chances since they came to Collingwood, but I'm always left underwhelmed -- especially given the price. Pizza Capers is also a bit pricier than standard fare, but well worth it.

  4. Welcome back. I've loved reading all the posts from both of you during your trip.

  5. Ruth - unfortunately it doesn't look like Pizza Capers delivers to our area! Otherwise I'd definitely give them a go.

    Thanks, Nudbot. :-)
