There are two types of pizza lovers: those who leave crusts, and those who eat crusts and crusts that other people leave.
Villa Italian Kitchen will be a haven for the crust-eaters. On July 18, the restaurant will offer “Just the Crust” of its Neapolitan pizzas for $2.50.
“We are huge pizza crust fans at Villa Italian Kitchen,” said Mimi Wunderlich, director of communications and digital market for Villa Italian Kitchen. “We know that the crust is everyone’s favorite part of the pizza, so skipping straight to selling pizza crusts only seemed like the perfect idea.”
The idea came to the restaurant after “a record number of consumer inquiries” on what makes these crusts so delicious. The pizzeria’s announcement today was a surprise on social media.
A New Jersey-based pizza chain is going to start selling pizza crusts by themselves…like this.

Some love the idea.
“What would you think if you opened this box and saw this?”
Like, after I ordered it? I think I’d probably think “oh wow they got my order right.” and then give them ten stars on getting orders right.

And some mocked it.
@NJSP Please investigate this place for abuse of preparing pizza.

Someone asked an important question.
Does this mean they’ll also be selling crustless pizza, or is this just the leftovers that other customers didn’t eat?
