About UsMr Rustic

It all began when I was 15 years old.

I started working at one of the busiest and well known takeaway pizza restaurants in Moonee Ponds.

From waiting tables and cleaning dishes, I got promoted to pizza maker.

Very quickly I realized that I enjoyed pizza making a lot more than school, it kept me out of trouble and kept mum off my back.

Food has always been in my DNA, I come from a very large family and food was made from scratch. Most of my family was selling wood fired homemade bread from home.

The most important thing as a Calabrese (Calabria is a region in Italy) is making food with quality and fresh ingredients and cooking it perfectly.

I built a wood oven at home, to perfect my secret recipes serving my family and friends. Over the years I have learnt so much making pizzas that I even taught my mum a trick or two. The art of pizza is not only having an incredible taste, but also looking enticing.

After working at a number of award winning pizza restaurants, it was time to move on.

Thus my journey began, I built a traditional wood oven on an engineered trailer, created a tantalising menu and now I share the joy of rustic authentic Italian pizzas and cooking at functions and parties.

We deliver a no fuss, no mess service wowing your guests, serving only the freshest ingredients on top of my secret recipe pizza dough.

I invite you to look at our menu, then contact us to book in your next function. We can even tailor make a package to suit your function.
