Where are all my dill pickle fans?! I'm a big lover of all things pickle, but dill are my favorite. Dill pickle pizza has been making an appearance on our menu frequently these days. Once you give it a try, you'll understand why.

This pizza has a fresh garlic and olive oil base and is topped with mozzarella cheese for the gooey factor along with some sharp cheddar cheese for the extra flavor kick. 
Use your favorite and most flavorful dill pickles here. You can buy dill pickle chips that are already sliced, or use your favorite whole dill pickles and slice them yourself.
An extra touch of dill weed makes this pizza even more delicious. I use fresh during garden season when it's available, and dried during other times of the year. 
Dill pickle pizza cut into slices on a cutting board.
To make this pizza a bit spicy, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes on top, or under the cheese. You can also have the red pepper flakes on the side for those who may like to add them.

We have homemade pizza about once every week or so. The whole family loves it and it's such a versatile meal with endless ways to top it. 
Plus, making homemade pizza is pretty easy once you get a crust recipe down. Recently, I've been making a lot of crust with my sourdough starter discard. Store bought dough also works great and saves time.
This pizza goes well with a vegetable tray and ranch dressing for dip, or a side salad, for a complete meal.  When we have pizza we almost always have a side of cut up raw vegetables for dipping or a salad with it. 
Another of my favorite pizza side dishes is Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower. Pizza and wings are a common combination here in the Buffalo area, so we love the hot sauce and blue cheese flavors with our pizzas.
Give this garlic dill pickle pizza a try on your next homemade pizza night! It's something different and great for those who love pickles.
