Crust has opened in Wexford offering a menu of Neapolitan Pizza, while showcasing the best of Irish artisan ingredients.
Crust, located on 93 South Main St., Wexford, and introduces regional, authentic Neapolitan pizza base to Wexford.
Inspiration behind the concept and menu has been driven by Chef/Owner Richard Whitty, who trained and worked in Ballymaloe Cookery School, where he fell in love with wood fired Pizza. Upon leaving he decided to set up a pizza pop up in Rosslare Strand “Lovin’ Pizza” for two summers. In 2017, Richard then travelled to Naples to complete the Vera Pizza training in accordance with “Associazione Vercase Pizza Napoletana “(AVPN), 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! His concept was to bring the traditional Neapolitan pizza base to Wexford, with the best of Irish ingredients.
His partner, Laura Kelly, who grew up in Rosslare and works in her family business Kelly’s Resort, has helped Richard open Crust injecting her Front Of House charm and experience ensuring that the service is cordial, efficient and welcoming. They wanted to create a restaurant that is true to Italian tradition, while showcasing what Ireland has to offer.
