We can’t believe it’s been a whole year!

That’s right! A whole year has passed since we first set-up Wandercrust and we can’t believe where the time has gone. It’s been great fun and we’re so proud of our achievements so far. We continue to grow and come up with new menu inspirations and cool places for us to pitch to spread the Wandercrust word and we’re really looking forward to seeing where our 2nd year will take us!

BUT, we couldn’t have done any of it without the support from our friends and customers at the Crown so we’re celebrating by offering HALF PRICE PIZZA ALL NIGHT! Oh yes, we were thinking of sending a card or having a cake and then thought let’s just stick to what we’re good at and make lots of pizza!

It’s our anniversary this week so we’re celebrating on Monday 6th March so just rock up and grab a half price pizza on us in the Crown Pub, 176 Trafalgar Road SE10 from 5.30 till 9.30!

Thanks again for all the support.

The Wandercrust Team.

If you’re Vegan or dairy intolerant, we hear you!

Well after much crawling down rabbit holes on the internet late at night, much R&D at the lab and of course a LOT of help from our vegan and dairy intolerant friends, we’ve now decided on a great dairy free cheese alternative.

It’s called Vegusto No Moo melty and I’m sure you’re familiar with it. It’s organic, no soya or palm oil is used, and above all it’s damn tasty on a pizza. We feel it’s of a high enough quality and flavourful enough that we don’t feel bad about it being atop any of our pizza. Keep this in mind next time you’re yearning for something more than a marinara (as delicious as they are!)

Disclaimer: We are very aware that vegan cheese, wherever it’s from, isn’t appealing to all vegans and those with a dairy intolerance so we’ll always be happy to offer other dairy free options or happily let you choose your own too!

Lot’s of Love,

The Wandercrust team

Bring on the Marathon!

We love the Marathon so much that we want to offer free pizza to the first 5 runners to show us their shiny medals on Sunday!

What better way to celebrate an incredible achievement and being part of one of the worlds most iconic sporting events than eating free pizza and having a drink in the lovely Crown pub in Greenwich?

You will actually pass the pub just before the 6 mile marker on Trafalgar Road so we’re hoping that the thought of free pizza later in the day will spur you on!

Just like the race itself, there’s no cheating allowed so the medals have to be from this year’s race and you have to have run it yourself but we can’t imagine why you would want to give away your chance to savour one of our delicious pizzas after running 26 miles earlier that day.

All you have to do is rock up on Sunday after we start serving at 5.30pm and show us your medal and as long as you’re 1 of the 1st 5 runners to arrive you can choose from any of our lovely pizzas on the menu.

Good Luck to all the runners!

Wandercrust!

We Have A New Name!

 

We are changing our name from Pop Up Pizza to Wandercrust! We have been overwhelmed with the great feedback and support we have received from everyone since we set up in January this year and have had some brilliant (and amusing but not suitable!) name suggestions. Here are winner and the runners up…

Winner

Wandercrust – we just loved this as soon as we saw it as it really captures our love of food and travel – especially Pizza! We see it as reflecting our passion for seeking out new and wonderful food and that we really want to find new and exciting places to share our amazing pizzas. Big thanks to Alex for the suggestion – how are we ever going to repay you? Oh – hang on! We can give you 5 FREE PIZZAS!

Keep an eye out for our new website and Facebook page coming very soon.

We have also updated our Twitter and Instagram usernames but don’t worry, this won’t affect our lovely followers – the transition is seamless (so Twitter tells us!).

Runners up

Partizan Pizza – We loved this and it came a close second as it reflects how we feel about trying to be a bit different in what we do and how we make pizza. We work really hard to follow traditional Neapolitan values in our pizza making process but we also want to do this with our own twist. We will continue to do this and so massive thanks to Danny Spencer for the suggestion – you get 2 FREE PIZZAS!

Pizza Prophets – We also loved this as we know how good proper handmade Neapolitan pizzas can be compared to what we have all got used to over the years and we don’t think we need to put up with sub-standard food that has been made with money rather than quality in mind. We want to change the expectations we all have of pizza and spread the word! We did think, however, that it was a bit too close to Pizza Pilgrims, who have blazed the trail for us in changing pizza and for that we will always be very grateful to them. Thanks to Season Bakery for the suggestion – you also get 2 FREE PIZZAS!

Other suggestions were:

The cart with the heart – We love this as it reflects the passion that goes into all that we do but is a bit long and could be unclear.

Pizza Vanguard – We like to think we are at the forefront of pizza and we make them in a van so loved it but wasn’t quite right.

Pizza Meantime – Loved it and would be right up there if it wasn’t for a certain brewery that got there before us.

Flatbred truck – We liked this but thought that it wasn’t clear about what we did.

Pizza C*nts – Thanks for this. We found it funny and might be true but thought that it might marginalise our customer base.

Jesus Crust – We really liked this but again thought that might not be the case with all of our customers.

Pizza cats – We love pizza and we love cats but not sure we like them together.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions – they really mean a lot to us and for all of your support. We hope you like our new name and that we can build Wandercrust into something really special with you all.
