Wood Fired Pizza
10 Sonnys Rd, Upper Tantallon
The Rustic Crust is located in Upper Tantallon, Nova Scotia, and serves brilliantly made wood fired pizzas. Their menu is simple, yet inviting, and focuses on Italian-styled thin crust pizzas. They also have something for everyone as their options range from vegetarian pizzas to salads, meat lovers to desserts.
What started as a food truck is now a permanent fixture with indoor and outdoor seating, fire pits, live music, and local craft beer. They make every pizza to order by hand in their wood oven, and it is evident in the taste. These pizzas are as good as you’ll find anywhere throughout the Halifax region. They start with excellent dough, top them with fresh, high quality ingredients, and finish them in their wood burning oven. They are truly Italian.
The Rustic Crust has an excellent outdoor eating area that is inviting and quite spacious. Their capacity is reduced in winter months, but they can also cater to weddings and events as their indoor space is operational all year long for dine-in or take-away. They are unique in their location as they service Tantallon, which is outside of the downtown core.
The next time you're craving thin crust Italian-style pizza, The Rustic Crust is the place you want to go. It’s worth the drive.
