At Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar you can get pizza, minus the guilt. Crust believes that pizza should be delicious and that it can make life a little nicer. I would tend to agree.

Their menu is extensive and while you'll find some classic combinations, like the good ol' Aussie and Hawaiian, you might like to get a bit adventurous with one of the more gourmet pickings.

Crust's menu is conveniently listed by type meat pizzas, chicken, seafood. Choose from Peppercorn Wagyu, Mediterranean Lamb, Tandoori Chicken, Salmon Benedict, and so many more. If meat's not your thing, the vegetarian range consists of no less than six options including Gourmet Cheese, Wild Mushroom and Vegetarian Supreme.

Then there's what they call the 'Upper Crust' range think Five Spice Pork Belly, Peking Duck, White Prosciutto. And we're still not done. They also offer the Chicago Deep Dish, which is more like a pie, in a choice of Italian Sausage or Vegetarian Antipasto; Calzones (kind of like an inside-out pizza); and six Heart Foundation 'Tick' approved 'Healthier Choice' pizzas, all with reduced fat and sodium and increased fibre.

As if that wasn't enough, you'll find starters, salads and desserts on the menu too. Visit the website for their full menu.

Crust are nice and transparent about what's in and on their pizzas you can go online and download the Menu Ingredients List, Allergens Product Table and Heart Foundation Tick Information.

For those following a gluten free diet, Crust offers gluten free pizza bases on some of their pizzas. You can also work out exactly which toppings fit within your dietary requirements, whether it be gluten, dairy or nuts.

Ready for a pizza? You might not even have to leave the house. You can order online or over the phone, and Crust offers delivery for orders over $20.

While the pizzas aren't cheap (you won't find any $5 specials), Crust means you can enjoy gourmet pizza at home, without turning on the oven.

Since opening their first Melbourne-based store in 2002, Crust have grown to 28 locations across Victoria. Find your local here.

I don't like deep pan crust on a pizza, love it thin, but those deep dish pizzas look amazing! I've just found a crust pizza in Adelaide (I thought they were only interstate) but I think after reading this I'm definitely going to have to give them a go.
