so, there's a guy from portland making gourmet pizzas out of the kitchen at circus now.

amazing cornmeal crust. tastes like nothing else in town.

you can get slices, half pies or whole pies.

less than 10 types of pie listed right now, and a dessert tart (pumpkin with choc-ganache!!!)
2 types of vegan pie on the menu, both delicious.

my fav so far: balsamic onion, sweetcorn (like a fucking LAYER of sweetcorn), fennel sausage (1/2 pound o'sausage per pie!)

check this shit out. it's SO worth it.

i hate pep, so i can't comment on the more traditional things, but all 5 of the oddball ones i've had so far have been fucking amazing.

treat yourself, its so worth it . . .

That's Gary.
He lived here for a while before Portland.
Him and his wife are good people.
Support them...for real.

i've been preaching his gospel and forcing slices on people for a week or so now.

we haven't had much time to have long chats yet, but everytime i see him my "good dude" spidey-sense goes off . . .

i'm gonna spend way too much money in way too short a time, i just know it. i'ts just like mr. peeper's and bono pizza, i gotta get in as much of it as i can while i can!

how about this sumbitch:


Quote:
If you're looking for a way to "disgust 4-7 people easily," consider visiting Avalanche Pizza in Athens. The shop's newest pie is named Bride of Wonderboy, and at best, it will leave you wondering.

Here's the description: a crust stuffed with foot-long hot dogs, then laden with mustard, macaroni and cheese, a half-pound of mozzarella and cheddar, "serious beef" and bacon, covered with onion, tomato and dill pickle, and topped with french fries and ketchup. Price: $18.99.

i believe 3 to 10 for full menu, and then slices of cheese or pep after 10 while they last.

but i could be totally wrong.

and i haven't heard about take'n'bakes, but god i hope so, the crust just kills me!

the vegan i had last night had really nice tofu-ricotta and some amazing eggplant . . .
but the sausage on the crow pie was just fucking perfect, even hours later!

columbus alive review of gary's "clever crow pizza"

Quote:
First Bite: Clever Crow pizza at Circus
Thursday, November 5, 2009 6:00 AM
By G.A. Benton


Clever Crow at Circus
1227 N. High St., Short North
614-421-2998
Web: myspace.com/circuscolumbus



This is not a review, it's a public service announcement.

You see, as I was following up on a recent rave of a hot pizza tip, I discovered that the artisanal piemaker in question had connections at the very top of the food chain. That's right, the pie guy was pals with our nationally famous ice cream queen.

Well, it follows like deductive logic that if our exalted frozen dessert artist tells me she loves someone's pizzas, then I go eat them immediately.

But just as I was preparing to order a tempting 'za, I was greeted with a point and an "Are you from Alive?" I then realized you don't make it to the top of the food chain by leaving things up to chance.

Believe me, getting fingered like that almost never happens. And it might've been a deal-breaker, except after chatting with the creative and experienced pizza professional and eating his terrific product, I became convinced he wasn't "gaming" me, wasn't obsessed with publicity, and really only cared about whipping up great grub. In other words, I figured it was my duty to get the word out about him.

Gary Robinette - who has a food science degree from OSU and learned to make pies in that quirky pizza hotbed of Portland, Oregon - was wearing a T-shirt, heavy framed black specs, scruffy beard and a sort of bike-messenger cap (worn askew, natch) as he explained that sourdough had just made its way into the cornmeal-fed crust he uses for his unique Clever Crow "Cornbread-Style" pizzas.

Robinette also informed me that his long list of excellent ingredients included house-made sausage (spiked with wine), house-cured pork like pancetta, tasso ham, bacon and Canadian bacon, and (what I'd soon discover to be remarkable) house-pickled vegetables. Man, I couldn't wait to stuff his pies into my face.

But first there would be a pretty Roasted Beet Salad ($3.50/$6.50). As I dug into that perfectly balanced (this trait would prove prevalent with Robinette's food) construction assembled with deeply toasted walnuts, creamy blue cheese daubs, pristine greens and a tart and tangy vinaigrette, I thought this was the kind of dish I'd expect from a white-tablecloth operation, rather than a dark bar with sideshow art on red walls and a gaggle of goths lining up outside for a big show later that night.

That's because Robinette's fantastic pizzas are currently emanating from the kitchen of the Short North's Circus bar. So now you can get your rock groove on and order a nice beer (Circus has 15 on tap) to go with a startlingly different, totally handmade and delicious pizza.

OK, those pies. The compelling, eccentric and complex crust is thick and sturdy - especially at the edges - and therefore guaranteed to never go soggy. What's more, it's made from a highly interesting hybrid bread dough that's yellowish and mildly corny sweet yet also has a pleasant, fermented sourdough edge to it. In the end, it texturally reminded me of a cross between a stout biscuit and a comforting shortbread.

Clever Crow's feeds-three whole pizzas are $19. I went with a half Crow Style (winey, crumbly fennel-seeded sausage brushed up against sweet caramelized balsamic onions and corn nuggets; there was also smoked provolone, good mozzarella and a thyme sprinkling) and a half Sopressata (in which the namesake mildly gamey hard sausage found an excellent complement in roasted and pickled red peppers). The pie was terrific.

I could continue describing Robinette's other ambitious dishes (like incredible roasted pork and homemade kraut, and a smooth, chocolate-crusted pumpkin tart with a back-end cayenne kicker), but I suggest you find out for yourself.

But do go soon, because word on the street is a traveling media personality famous for channeling his inner bad-boy appetites is eager to try Robinette's pizzas, and he'll tell everybody about them.

OH MAN MY LIFE. Stuffing my face with Clever Crow homemade sausage right now. 4.5 outta 5 stars. Crust is ABSOLUTELY amazing. Y'all need to give these peeps yr money ASAP. Only (very minor) "criticisms" 1. maybe could expand the variety of toppings a bit 2. toppings were a touch heavy relative to sauce. I'd prefer a little more sauce- ymmv.

Might be the best pizza crust I've ever had. Perfect.

I won't believe any of this until Mike Hinze and David Trenoff offer their takes on this seemingly expensive, fancypants pie.

Let's not get carried away.

I know that Mike's busy with a real life baby, and Trenoff is occupied with some riffage of one form or another, so Fern is welcome to chime in.

I want a trusted source here.

spent the better part of the afternoon filming scenes for anthony bourdain's show. got fed a LOT of clever crow's pies, and even a second segment where jeni brought LOTS of ice creams.

didn't think i'd have ANY use for the grape&brie pizza, but i couldn't have been more wrong . . .

i guess bourdain will be in some other time this weekend for the "chat with the chef" bits.

Had Bono yesterday at the new spot. Still banging.

Tried Crow today. Straight up ignorant. Grape and Brie is nuts but Crow style is retardo. Didn't try it with sausge but next time, it's on.

May hit Rubino's tomorrow to get up on some winter weight.

Pasqualie's on monday night in Westerville. I'll be the one sweating grease.

just found out about bono's new spot 2 days ago. making that my monday nite plans.

and yeah, crow-style is amazing, but it's 3 times as good with sausage.

(and once gary made me the vegan crow style -- it has a cashew paste instead of cheese -- but topped it with a ton of sausage. best of fuckin' show, no lie!)

Testify. BastardSuperstar's been telling me for weeks about Clever Crow and I thought "It's pizza. How good can it be?" Believe the fucking hype, people. This stuff is amazing.

cuz when we rolled up there at quarter-to-7 last nite, my bono plans quickly became a nice mama mimi's pesto pizza. damn fine, but no bono.
