If you love unique flavors, you've got to try this Dill Pickle Pizza! It has creamy garlic sauce, crunchy dill pickles, and lots of cheese. Don't judge it until you've tasted it – it's full of garlicky and yummy flavors!
Putting pickles on pizza might not seem very appealing, and even though we really love all kinds of pickles, we were doubtful at first.
We usually prefer the classic pepperoni and mushroom combination. But we took a chance and stepped out of our pizza comfort zone, and oh my, it was way better than we could have ever imagined - truly a WOW moment! Calling all pickle lovers! This one's for you.
✅ You'll Need
Crust: Our go-to is a homemade thin pizza crust. It's really easy to make and doesn't need much time to rise. If you're not up for making your own, store-bought pizza dough works just as well. For those who prefer a thicker crust, just remember to bake it a bit longer.
Garlic Sauce: The garlic sauce we make is fantastic, and it's great for more than just pizza. It's also a tasty dip and can add a lot of flavor to things like bread and chicken!
Pickles: For this pizza, we prefer thinly sliced dill pickles. But feel free to slice them however thick you like. Dill pickle chips are also a great choice.
Cheese: We use shredded mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese on top.
Extra Toppings: If you're someone who likes meat on their pizza, try adding some ham or Canadian bacon!
🔪How To Make Dill Pickle Pizza
Preheat your oven to 400°F.
To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix them until you get a creamy and smooth texture.
For the pizza, stretch out the dough to make a 12-inch circle. You can put it on a pizza stone or on a baking sheet that's lined with parchment paper.
Spread the garlic sauce over the pizza dough, and then add the parmesan, mozzarella, and dill pickle slices on top.
Bake it in the preheated oven for 16-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the crust becomes golden brown. After taking it out of the oven, let it rest for 2-3 minutes before cutting and serving.
Garnish with fresh dill if you want.
👨🍳 Pro Tips
- Crust: For a crispy base, pre-bake the crust for a few minutes before adding toppings.
- Garlic Sauce: For a richer flavor, let the garlic sauce sit for an hour or more before spreading it on the pizza. This allows the flavors to meld together.
- Pickle Placement: Distribute the pickle slices evenly over the pizza to ensure every slice gets an equal amount of that tangy pickle taste.
- Cheese Matters: Use freshly shredded mozzarella and parmesan for better melting and flavor. Pre-shredded cheese often contains anti-caking agents that can affect melting.
Can I Make Pickle Pizza Ahead of Time?
You can make the garlic sauce ahead and kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. The crust dough can be refrigerated for 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
To store Pickle Pizza, place it in a sealed container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. If you want to freeze it, either as a whole pizza or just the leftovers, make sure it's in an airtight container.
