Crust kicks gourmet pizza goals at MCG

Mar 26, 2012

Crust Pizza will be served at the MCG during the 2012 AFL season.It’s shaping up to be a great season for AFL fans as Crust Gourmet Pizza opens five new pizza bars at the MCG, just in time for the Round 1 match between Richmond and Carlton on Thursday March 29.

While a meat pie and sauce at the footy has been a long-term favourite, there are plenty of sports fans looking for a fresh, gourmet and delicious alternative.

With four favourite toppings on offer, Crust’s pizza by the slice will be hand-made on site at the MCG using only the freshest ingredients.

Around three-and-a-half tonnes of fresh ingredients will be used to create Crust’s gourmet pizza slices at the MCG over the first weekend.

Crust Co-Founder and Managing Director, Costa Anastasiadis, said the decision to partner with the MCG was an easy one.

“Crust is already enjoyed by sports lovers at home, so it is a natural evolution for us to open these stores in the MCG," Anastasiadis said. "

At Crust, we’re all about making takeaway food fresh and delicious so we’re excited to deliver slices by the box to fans at the MCG – you can buy one just for yourself or shout the whole row if your team is winning."

Four of Crust’s most popular pizzas will be served at five Crust slice concept sites around the MCG, including Peri Peri Chicken, Meat Deluxe, Vege Supreme and Italian Sausage (available exclusively at the MCG).
