They got me as a client with this one.... Starting on July 18th, the New Jersey-based Villa Italian Kitchens will be selling “Just The Crusts,” which is just that, a dish consisting of the crusts of Neapolitan pizzas. The menu item will sell for $2.75 and comes in a slice box filled with just crusts.
"We know that the crust is everyone’s favorite part of the pizza,” the chain shares, “so skipping straight to selling pizza crusts only seemed like the perfect idea."
- As you can imagine, folks had some definite thoughts about the dish, with some even suggesting it’s some kind of late April Fool’s day joke, although the chain insists it’s real. Others are comparing it to breadsticks, while some are just confused as to where these crusts are coming from. “They make a pizza just to cut out the crust? Or the did the crust ever been on someone else's pizza and is an unclaimed leftover?," one person wrote. "If it's not one of these options, then is a breadstick.”
