Dill Pickle Pizza Is Way Better Than Pineapple Pizza

Hear me out on this one, y’all: when it comes to what toppings to put on a pizza, a Dill Pickle Pizza is far more appetizing than adding pineapple.

Need more evidence? Peep this tantalizing take on a pie that loads up heavy on the dill pickles and proves the combination is absolutely delicious.

Foodbeast Chris cooked this up on a Foodbeast Kitchen stream over on Twitch, using a dill cream sauce, dill pickle chips and layers of Pecorino Romano and Mozzarella cheese.

How good was it? The whole squad practically devoured the entire thing within minutes. That tang from the pickle jives with the creamy sauce, rich cheese and savory pizza crust in a way that gets your taste buds dancing.

It should be noted that dill pickles have been proven to excel on pizzas before, as is the case with the viral QC Pizza version out of Minnesota. You can add Chris’s pizza to the cache of evidence that shows how well pickles and pizza go together.

For those naysayers on the internet, give this Dill Pickle Pizza recipe a go. You might be convinced like some pineapple on pizza detractors have been in the past.


Sauce and Pizza Base

  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp chopped dill
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 16 oz ball of pizza dough


  • 12 oz Dill Pickle Chips
  • 2 cups Low Moisture Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pecorino Romano Cheese for garnish
  • Extra chopped dill for garnish


  1. Preheat a pizza stone or baking steel in your oven at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Whisk together the ricotta, heavy cream, and chopped dill for your pizza sauce. Season to taste.
  3. Remove pickle chips from their brine and pat dry with paper towels. Grate your mozzarella cheese at this point as well.
  4. Stretch out your dough ball onto a pizza peel.
  5. Top the pizza base with your sauce, pickles, and a light layer of mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake until the cheese melts and the crust starts to crisp, about 5 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with fresh dill and grated Pecorino Romano, then slice and serve up!

Dill Pickle Gummies Exist, Are You Down?

East Tasty, a confectioner out in East Nashville, Tennessee, has found itself in our news radar because of a particular flavor of gummies that they’re serving up for the month of July: Dill Pickle.

According to East Tasty, each batch of the Dill Pickle Gummies contains actual dill seed and dill weed. Consider me intrigued. Surely this is the perfect gift for the pickle lover in your life. But make sure to act quick and cop here, since this is just a July flavor from East Tasty.

Now imagine a pickleback using these Dill Pickle Gummies instead? It’s crazy enough to work.

Sriracha, Pickle and Jalapeño-flavored Cashews Are Real And We Can’t Get Enough


Photo by Pete Pham

We’ve seen nuts before. We’ve seen cashews before. But when’s the last time you had your hands on a sweet pack of cashews with a flavor other than “Original” or “Lightly Salted?”

I’ll stop you right there—NEVER, that’s when! Maybe you’ll find the occasional “Honey Roasted,” but other than that, our options for tasty cashew snackin’ are disgustingly limited in the mainstream. What kind of treatment is that for the fanciest of nuts*?!

That’s where Emerald® Nuts comes in, picking up the slack that other packaged nut brands are leaving behind. They’ve got not one, not two, but FOUR different flav’s of cashews alone. Thank the LAWD.

Check it: Dill Pickle. Jalapeño. Sriracha. Salt & Pepper. No GMO’s, either. Just good ol’ cashews, dusted in a blanket of salty, zesty, spicy FLAVOR. That’s what I’m talkin’ about. The new flavors are currently available at select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99.

*Botanically speaking, cashews are considered seeds—delicious, delicious seeds. Though, they are culturally accepted as part of the nut family.

The CrocoDILL Sandwich

Ah, the creativity. We’re looking at what looks to be a cheese, mayo and pickle sandwich. Oh yeah, there’s a crocodile made of dill pickles chilling on the top slice. Don’t ask me why, maybe it’s the colors, but this sandwich actually looks quite delicious! (Via InsanewichesFB)
