Who doesn’t like a good slice of pizza!!  mmmmmm!!!!

However, I would have to be really hungry to eat the dry, bare crust of a slice of pizza. Luckily I have friends and family who benefit from my leftover crust.

This NJ restaurant is banking on those crust eaters. For me? I want the whole hot, tomato-sauce laden, cheesy pie. Not just the scraps. (Although, perhaps if it was dipped in garlicky olive oil….)

And now that I think about it, what is this restaurant doing the the rest of the pie? These aren’t the crusts left behind are they?

A N.J. restaurant is selling pizza crust as a side. Brilliant or insane?

The crust is, indisputably, the most polarizing part of any pizza slice. Some people - "monsters," I call them - refuse to munch on the plain, doughy goodness, while I genuinely love the stuff. I'm not above eating a friend's crust if they don't want it. I'm that guy.
