The Rustic Crust – Pizza – Nottingham (Farnsfield)

Its been the quietest few months for Frusher on Meals since I began approach again in 2013. You’ll have thought a captive viewers was the right alternative to put in writing however with restricted eating choices and never being in radius for any of the fascinating takeaway and supply providers I’ve lay dormant. Clearly the continued occasions have impacted enormously on the hospitality trade however I’m happy to see the resilience and success of a lot of my favorite locations.  I’ve visited a handful since we had been allowed again out and ha an ideal meal and my #1 Kushi-Ya significantly and pleasing visits to Baresca, Yamas and Kayal too. With few new locations opening, understandably, there was little to essentially share with you.


A opportune second arose this week although with the reopening of The Rustic Crust. My final meal earlier than lockdown was at their newly opened restaurant within the relatively pleasant village of Farnsfield about 25 minutes north of town centre of Nottingham, it felt perverse to put in writing about it after they merciless needed to shut so quickly after opening however now the time has come. Their followers (pizza stalkers as they’re identified) had been calling for a everlasting web site for them for a long run after a really profitable profession supporting private and non-private occasions with their pizza oven at the back of a land rover! The restaurant itself is a stunning, gentle area with the pizza oven a focus in the course of an open kitchen and eating space. The menu is small however completely fashioned, a handful of starters/sides and round 10 pizzas to selected from. I stored it easy with their caprese salad (£6.50) which surpassed my expectations. Italians would possibly say the extra leaves and olives usually are not true to the basic tomato mozzarella and basil mixture, however they couldn’t fail to get pleasure from it regardless. A beneficiant portion of cheese too which is at all times welcome.

Onto the pizza itself and I should have been feeling a veggie night as I selected a mix of caramelised onions, spicy roquito peppes and sun-blushed tomato. I first tried their pizzas at Trent Bridge and momentarily questioned if the a number of beers and sunshine of these events made them such a joyous expertise. On a cool night in March and by myself because the UK was experiencing the primary waves of Covid I used to be equally as impressed and uplifted. The dough and cooking mix to a incredible flavour and texture that’s unrivalled in my expertise. The effervescent and blackening of the crust is so aesthetically satisfying, I can’t clarify why. The toppings are of fantastic high quality and their handmade san marzarno tomato sauce for the bottom offering a superb grounding of flavour all through.


Their most costly pizzas (with steak on!) are available at £11.50, my veggie affair was £9.50 with a margarita at an inexpensive £8. For the craft that goes into these, perfected over time and the standard of elements it appears a scant value to pay. They’ve been providing DIY pizza kits with dough and sauce so that you can make it dwelling, nice worth and enjoyable…particularly with youngsters. These are nonetheless obtainable on their web site and now at a fairly large supply radius. I’ll proceed to let the specialists make mine and, now I’ve secured my desk for subsequent week,  I’m right here to inform you that you just actually ought to give them a go too.
