Crustica Pizza, located at 9045 Santa Monica Boulevard, is finally opening in the City of West Hollywood this month. A sign first went up at the location in 2018 promising that a “New Wave of Pizza” was coming to West Hollywood. Their website later projected a 2020 opening, but now the construction is complete, and the waiting is over. On Monday, October 24, 2022, Crustica Pizza will open to the public on Route 66 (an actual time has not been set yet but will be updated).
With the slogan, “New York folds it, Los Angeles rolls it,” the fast casual pizza restaurant offers pizza that you roll. Crustica’s menu includes a wide variety of savory and dessert pizzas, salads and in-house sodas. From mushroom to meatball pizza and banana Nutella to fruit compote, this is one pizza you won’t want to miss.
What makes the pizza stand out, besides the ultrathin crust and new way of eating it, are the calories. You could order two pizzas at Crustica for the same amounts of calories as a salad at other famous restaurant chains.
“We believe in the audacity of innovation, the daring pursuit of better than, and better still,” reads a statement on their website. “Like Italians, we believe that the purest rendering of simple, fresh, ingredients is the maximum expression of cuisine. As Californians, we believe that food is only as good as it makes you feel. Pizza should be a staple, not a splurge, so we’ve never been afraid to break with tradition. We sincerely believe that pizza is the perfect food, and it’s never been done better. We’re proud to produce the best pizza you’ve never tasted, and the best you ever will.”
