Pizza seems like a pretty simple concept: throw together some cheese, some dough, some sauce, and voilá! But Carolina Crust, a new pizza place in Hanahan, is upping the ante and showing you how much more pizza can be.

They want you to order your pizza exactly how you want it, choosing from their lengthy list of toppings. Or if you’re not feeling particularly creative, you can choose from one of their specialty favorites, like the barbecue chicken or the supreme pizza.

Appetizers on the menu include the goat cheese and marinara dip served with flat bread, or you can try to get your hands on some cheesy bread as it flies out of the kitchen during happy hour. Up front you’ll find a full bar with a large selection of wines and beers, but if the kids are tagging along for dinner the family atmosphere in the back will better suit your needs.

Don’t forget about dining outside either, because there’s a huge patio, often featuring live music. Different events are held throughout the week, including working Women’s Wednesdays with half-price martinis for the ladies, Trivia Thursdays, and Karaoke Fridays.

With prices ranging from $10-$17 for a pizza, daily entertainment, and a laid-back atmosphere, this pizzeria is not one you will want to skip on your tour de Carolina. Carolina Crust is located at 1105 Tanner Ford Blvd in Hanahan. For more information call (843) 553-2662.
