Review: Pie of the Tiger's dill pickle pizza

👋 Alissa here. You still have today and tomorrow to enjoy Pizza & Beer Week, with 22 area restaurants offering delicious deals on pies ($8-12) and pints (prices vary).

Why it matters: Proceeds benefit nonprofit Feed the Kids Columbus, which fights childhood hunger, per organizers 614 Media Group.

What I ate: Pie of the Tiger's Dill Thrill, with dill pickles, Old Bay hot sauce, garlic butter, minced garlic, provolone cheese and ranch dressing.

  • I'm not sure why they combined my favorite flavors into an eclectic pizza, but I'm certainly not complaining. You can even add bacon!

My take: If you're like me and add extra pickles to everything, this is the pizza of your dreams. Zesty, tangy flavor and just spicy enough.

  • Plus it's on a thick, fluffy crust. Like an inch thick. In Central Ohio, that's a rare delicacy.

😴 Pro tip: Don't make after-dinner plans. You'll probably need a nap.

If you go: 4-11pm daily — during Pizza & Beer Week or otherwise — inside Short North Tavern, 674 N High St.

  • Look for the kitchen door in the back amid old radios, local art and historical Columbus photos. Good food and good vibes.
