VEGAN Dill Pickle Pizza

VEGAN Dill Pickle PizzaYes, you did just click on a recipe blog post for a Dill Pickle Pizza, and yes, it’s delicious

An article from Esquire Magazine wrote an article titled “The Internet Remained Calm About This Dill Pickle Pizza. Just Kidding.”, so I had to try it. I love Pickles, and I love pizza, so why wouldn’t it be good, right? I was pleasantly surprised by this strange combo, and you will be too.

The article ends with the statement “Let this be a reminder that all pizza is good pizza” and I couldn’t agree more.

Hi, I’m Candice & welcome to The Edgy Veg! I try to veganize popular food for vegans, plant-based diets, eco-conscious eaters & people who are trying to eat more plants over… y’know animals or by-products of animals.

The debate of whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza is about to get way more heated when discussing pickles on a pizza. I know that this sounds crazy. But trust me, sometimes things are just so crazy that they change your life for the better. Okay so this pizza might not be life-changing, but it is worth trying.

How To Make: Vegan Dill Pickle Pizza

To make my Vegan Dill Pickle Pizza recipe, you’ll need to make the Garlic Dill Pizza Sauce, then add it, along with your toppings, to a pizza dough base. The crust is covered in homemade garlic sauce instead of marinara, there’s a layer of vegan mozzarella cheese, and it’s topped off with a heaping helping of dill-seasoned pickle slices.


Garlic Dill Pizza Sauce:

PIzza Toppings:


To make the vegan dill pickle pizza, start by making the base, which is a garlic dill sauce. Heat olive oil over medium-low heat, add garlic, and cook for 1-2 minutes, not browning the garlic. Add dill, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, and continue to cook. While whisking, slowly add flour until the mix becomes a paste. Let cook, whisking constantly for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add soy milk, and continue whisking. Add nutritional yeast and allow the sauce to simmer for 5-10 minutes on low heat. The sauce will begin to thicken.

To assemble the pizza, preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, with a pizza stone heating on the middle rack. On a floured surface, roll out the pizza dough to a circle the size of your pizza stone. Placed the rolled out dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet or cutting board.

Brush the dough lightly with olive oil and set aside to rise for 10 minutes. Top the dough with 1/2 of the Garlic Dill Sauce, or more, depending on how saucy you like your pizza. Leave space around the perimeter for the crust. Cover the top of the pizza with vegan mozzarella. Then top with pickles and a generous amount of chopped, fresh dill and vegan parm.

Move the pizza to the pizza stone and bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 5 minutes. Transfer pizza to the top rack of the oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust is a crispy golden brown. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving with a side or vegan ranch or hot sauce to dip. Enjoy this strange but beautiful creation!

  • This was delicious! I cheated and used a pre-made vegan crust but everything else turned out so yummy! Thank you for sharing!

  • This is amazing! Love it! My husband ate half of the pizza. Your homemade pizza crust is the bomb also! (I used raw sharp cheese & raw parmesan)

  • This is most definitely going to be the next recipe I make. Thank you so much for sharing. Looks delicious.

  • Keyrlis says:

    This is an official Cease & Desist order requiring that you stop calling this abomination a pizza.
    This has none of the qualities of pizza, such as pepperoni, marinara sauce, or actual cheese, so calling it pizza is an act of war against real food. Stop, or I will begin firing rounds of delicious medium-rare steaks at your website, launching Inter-Continental Bacon Missiles at your domain name, and dropping hot wings on your server, LoL. ;P

    Good natured joking aside, though, I can’t understand how this showed up in my notifications. I’m not vegan, I don’t think I’ve ever been on this site, and I absolutely *loathe* dill pickles. This whole recipe is an affront to my taste buds, so why would it pop up on my Google suggestions?

  • Definitely making this over the weekend! It looks so good and I love pickles!
