Quick Take: Topper's Pizza

Topper's Pizza is a Wisconsin-based chain pizzeria that opened its first Ohio location next to the old Papa Dino's on Calhoun in Clifton. This is the type of chain pizzeria we are predisposed not to like. Fortunately, we were pleasantly surprised by this guilty pleasure of a pizza. It reminded us of what Pizza Hut used to taste like when Pizza Hut was good (or at least when it seemed good, when we were in grade school). We ordered a "Tall Boy" (thick crust) pizza with thick-cut pepperoni and sausage.

This pizza was a greasy mess. But sometimes you're in the mood for a greasy mess of a pizza! Let's just say that the cheese was plentiful. As for toppings, the thick cut pepperoni was a great choice. The edges of the pepperoni bent up, forming a tasty cup. The sausage wasn't bad, but not remarkable. The crust was fluffy is a bit soggy on the inside. The sauce was almost non existent, which could be the reason for the extra cup on the side. Overall, it was heavy but a pretty tasty pie. Topper's a fine late night snack after a few brews. In other words, a fine fit for Clifton.

  1. This looks like something my kids (and myself) would love and I have a pizza crust frozen in the freezer (I make a big batch and freeze them so I have them for the entire month, we eat Pizza once a week as a treat). I am going to give this one a try. Thanks for sharing.
