Hounddog’s does a lot of things right to stack the deck in its favor. Open 24 hours to facilitate late-night scarfing? Check. Delivery limo to flaunt the place’s colorful personality? Check. Attached bar with awesome happy hour, cool concerts and popular karaoke and dance nights? Triple check. But none of that would matter in the end if not for the incomparable pleasure of eating the pizza. Throw just about any topping on Smokin’ Joe’s crust, and you’re in for buttery bliss. Who says there’s no such thing as Columbus-style pizza?
