What you will find are real palate-pleasing happy-hour appetizers, like our spicy buffalo wings, oven-warmed muffaletta sandwich strips, our tangy antipasto salad, and our all-hail to-the-stinking-rose garlic bread. “More beer, please…”

Speaking of beer, Upper Crust’s eight varieties of domestic and premium tap brews are discounted by the glass during happy hour. Whether you choose to sit with friends at the bar and watch sports or find a cozy booth to yourself and cruise the Net through our free Wifi, we think Upper Crust Santa Cruz might just become your go-to happy hour. Cin cin!

Try The

Sicilian Muffaletta Specialty Sandwich

Upper Crust Pizza & Pasta Santa Cruz makes their Sicilian muffaletta sandwich with great attention to savory taste and texture.

They start with their thin dough, coated with extra virgin olive oil, topped with sesame seeds, and baked in their brick oven to a toasty golden brown.Their muffaletta bread is then sprinkled with Italian spices and layered with Provolone, Mozzarella and Jack cheese. For meat lovers, it’s layers of thin-sliced deli ham; the veggie version consists of layers of shredded carrots and zesty garlic-basil pesto. Both are oven heated to a warm, crunchy texture, resulting in a delicious melody of flavors. We’re certain Upper Crust’s muffaletta sandwiches would make their Sicilian ancestors proud.


From Sicily To New York To New Orleans To Santa Cruz, California

The history of the muffaletta goes back to the Central Grocery of New Orleans. Sicilian farmers, who sold their produce at the nearby Farmers Market, would come into the store and order cold cuts, cheeses, and other deli items. In typical old-world style, they would sit and eat while balancing their foods on their laps. One day, the market owner had a “brain storm” by suggesting his customers place their luncheon foods between two slices of bread. Initially, they opted for braided Italian bread, but it wasn’t a good match as the bread was to thick. Muffaletta bread, softer than braided bread, soon became their go-to bread… Eventually, the word spread about the Central Grocery’s new sandwich as customers would simply order a “muffaletta.”
