Located just north of 5th Ave. at 1227 N. High St., Circus is best known for its late-night bump-and-thump alternative music, its great microbrew selection, and its fun back patio area. But its hidden secret is cooked up nightly before 9 p.m. when Circus dishes out Clever Crow Pizza in a much quieter setting.
The crust and toppings show more care, attention, and preparation than Dolly Parton prepping and fluffing up her mammoth – um – hairdos. Let’s start with the crust. Clever Crow describes it this way, “Our hand-crafted cornbread-style pizzas are made with Harvest King high-gluten Winter Wheat flour and organic cornmeal; which is grown and ground locally at Stutzman Farms in Millersburg, OH.” For the tasty toppings, they use locally-grown ingredients as much as possible.
Some of Clever Crow’s interesting ingredients that we’ve had include eggplant, smoked Gouda cheese, corn, shaved asparagus, and prosciutto.
For a laid-back, unpretentious atmosphere with great food and drinks at affordable prices, it’s tough to beat the combination of Clever Crow Pizza at Circus Club. Oh but wait, there’s more! Prefer pizza from the comfort of your own couch yet like your pizza oven-fresh? Call ahead and order a take-and-bake pizza. They partially bake the pizza so you’ve only got a 10 to 15 minute wait before jammies, couch, and Clever Crow collide in tasty goodness.
Since we could (but won’t) disagree with the typically-grumpy Yelp crowd (93% thumbs up for Clever Crow Pizza), The Taste Buds – having two hands each and four thumbs between us – give the Clever Crow Pizza experience, four thumbs up!
