Crust, Bold Street, Liverpool

23 October


Guys, I think I've found the best pizza in Liverpool.

I know what you're thinking. How can you possibly say that out of all the pizza available in Liverpool, this is the best? Well, this is just my opinion. And yes, I also love and wholeheartedly recommend American Pizza Slice and TriBeCa, although they're more of an American vibe than Italian, so I'm not really comparing. But I eat a lot of pizza so I feel I have knowledge on what makes a good one (in case you were wondering, no soggy crusts and don't scrimp on the cheese, please) and every person I've taken to this place has absolutely loved it. It's Crust, on Bold Street.

You can't miss the bright yellow sign in the middle of Bold Street, and the interior is just as cheerful and striking, with exposed brick, a yellow and grey colour scheme and a few neon signs. I first visited in January of this year and have been back at least once a month since.

I'm going to break this down into three categories to try and convince you that you need to visit this Italian fulfiller of pizza dreams immediately.


The most important part, of course.

Crust have a huge selection of pizzas to choose from, including four different types of crust. My favourite is the Regina Margherita (pictured above). It's a white pizza, so it has no tomato sauce which leaves more room for cheese, and also comes with cherry tomatoes, basil and a splash of olive oil. It looks like a cartoon pizza, which is always a winner for Instagram photos. It's hands down the most delicious pizza I've ever eaten.

I've tried a few pizzas from the menu and they've all tasted amazing, but this is my favourite. You can order pizza with Violife vegan cheese if you don't eat dairy for whatever reason, and it tastes exactly like real cheese. Cheesy vegan pizza is finally a thing in Liverpool!

Crust also serve pasta, which I can confirm is just as tasty as the pizza, and a range of burgers. The dessert menu includes chocolate ravioli (I KNOW!) and Nutella pizza. I'm not a huge fan of Nutella and find most Nutella pizza/calzones to be a bit sickly, but this one has a light crust and some strawberries and cream on the top, which balances it out.

You can get a cocktail in a plant pot as well, which is always a novelty. I think it's called a Crustyberry. Questionable name, tasty drink.


The staff at Crust are honestly so lovely, they greet you with a smile and are always happy to have a little chat and a joke with you. They're also good at giving recommendations if you're not sure what to try, and don't mind if you're fussy like my boyfriend and I and want to change half the toppings on your pizza.

Because it's so popular, sometimes there can be a little bit of a wait for a table but you can order a drink at the bar while you wait to be seated. The amount of people doesn't seem to have much impact on the time it takes to get your food, which is impressive.


So yeah, the food is amazing, the service is impeccable, but at what cost?

Well, two pizzas and two soft drinks come in at around £17. Yep. Cheaper than a Dominos. Of course, if you order starters, dessert and a few cocktails it'll be more expensive, but still extremely cheap for the quality of the food.

To give you an idea of prices, starters and desserts are around £5. Pizza and pasta is usually between £6-8, but there's also a more premium pizza range between £10-14. Drinks are average prices and cocktails are around £7, which is pretty darn good.

So if you fancy mouthwateringly good Italian food without making your bank account scream in pain, head to Crust.

Disclaimer: I'm not being paid to write this, I just really, really love Crust and their pizza. And now I'm hungry.

Oh yeah, they also do delivery, if you really can't be bothered to get out of bed.
