Crust Gourmet Pizza by the Metre!
After making culinary history in September 2016 with their successful Guinness World Record attempt for the world’s largest dessert pizza, Crust are taking their expertise to the people this week with the launch of their Uno Grande one metre pizza.
The Guinness World Record attempt took place at Retail Food Group’s (RFG) Franchise Expo at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre’s forecourt, with hundreds of patrons there to witness the incredible 46.6 metres of delicious pizza run through the oven and into the record books.
Confirmation was received in March that Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar officially took out the renowned Guinness World Record title, prompting the new menu addition.
Crust General Manager Renee North said the team were thrilled with the title and were excited to celebrate with the launch of their new Uno Grande one metre pizza.
“The Uno Grande is a direct reflection of our commitment to innovative pizza solutions and has been inspired by our record breaking dessert pizza,” she said.
Pizza lovers can top the Uno Grande with a selection of three flavours from the traditional and gourmet Crust ranges. Adding to the theatre of it all, the one metre of pizza perfection will arrive at your door in a customised metre pizza box and delivery bag.
The Uno Grande is set to launch just in time for the 2017 State of Origin series, which means that those die- hard footy fans who can’t nab tickets to the big game, now have the perfect catering solution for at home gatherings.
“State of Origin night means a huge spike in orders for us, which is why we wanted to create an option that speaks to the food sharing experience and transforms ordinary occasions into extraordinary occasions,” Renee said.
“Pizza is best enjoyed shared with loved ones, and our Uno Grande is the perfect meal to make any event that little bit more special.”
