We’re drooling!

Crust has opened in Wexford offering a menu packed full of genuine Neapolitan Pizza… the best kind of pizza tbh.

Crust, which is located on 93 South Main St., Wexford, and introduces an authentic Neapolitan pizza base to Wexford.

The delicious pizzas are cooked with the very best of fresh artisanal Irish produce, packed with big, punchy flavours that will satisfy all pizza lovers.

Neapolitan style pizza is impossible to beat – it is where pizza all began! In fact, UNESCO now protects the Neapolitan Margherita pizza, which is madness (but also excellent)!

The inspiration behind the concept and menu has been driven by Chef and owner Richard Whitty, who trained and worked in Ballymaloe Cookery School, where he fell in love with wood fired pizza.

In 2017, Richard travelled to Naples to complete the Vera Pizza training in accordance with “Associazione Vercase Pizza Napoletana” where he wanted to learn the traditional Neapolitan method of pizza making.

After months of research, the time had finally come to open his own place! And so, Crust was born.

They wanted to create a restaurant that is true to Italian tradition, while showcasing what Ireland has to offer.

And they did just that.

“At Crust, you step into a pizzeria that values Italian tradition, but I want the ingredients and flavour combinations to showcase the best of Irish Artisan produce – in essence marrying the food heritage of our two countries.” said Richard.

Crust also has a wine licence and a delicious selection of bits, dips and desserts.

BRB… heading straight to Wexford.
