Pickle Pizza? Yeah, That’s Now a Thing
Back off, pizza purists, it actually sounds pretty good.
Is a pizza with no tomato sauce, but plenty of pickles, garlic and cheese a pizza? Please discuss!
“I love pizza and all but with pickles no thanks,” wrote one commenter in response to the video.
“Not in a million years,” sniffed another.
Yet the idea also had plenty of fans.
Sample positive response? “I need this now!”
Rhino’s, which sells about 30 pickle pizzas a day, spreads its pickle pizza crusts with homemade garlic sauce – rather than your usual marinara – and then tops them with mozzarella cheese and lots of dill pickle slices. (The pizzeria blows through around 10 gallons of pickles a week in the process.) Then, after a generous sprinkle of dill across the pie, it tucks it into its pizza ovens and voila! – you got a perfect pickle pizza.
It’s a popular item … is the pickle pizza, officially called The Big Dill.
“People have been coming from all over – Buffalo, Syracuse, Pennsylvania,” Rhino’s chef Cindy Arena told Food Insider, adding that the pickle pizza has proven to be a particular hit with pregnant women.
Food Insider recommends trying it with ranch dressing on top. Hmmm. Guess that’s better than pineapple. Or mustard.
