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. Pickles, and pizza, I needed it. I was pleasantly surprised by this strange combo, and you will be too.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 pizza
Garlic Dill Pizza Sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour (depending on if you like a thin or thick sauce)
  • 1 tbsp dried dill, or a handful of fresh dill finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp salt + extra to taste
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1½ cups soy milk
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Pizzaz Dough of Choice (I used "Pizzeria-Style Dough" from my cookbook)
  • Vegan Mozzarella Style Cheese of Choice (I used "Its a Bella Mozzarella" from my cookbook)
  • Dill Pickles
  • Dried or Fresh Dill
  • Vegan Parmesan Style Cheese of Choice (optional)
Garlic Dill Sauce:
  1. Heat olive oil and garlic in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes, whisking constantly. Be sure not to brown the garlic.
  2. Add dill, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper and continue to whisk.
  3. While whisking, slowly add in flour, 1 tbsp at a time, until the mixture becomes a paste.
  4. Allow to cook, whisking constantly for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Slowly drizzle in soy milk, ½ cup at a time, whisking constantly.
  6. Add nutritional yeast and allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes on low. The sauce will begin to thicken.
Pizza Assembly:
  1. Preheat the oven to 500°F with your pizza stone on the middle rack.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out your dough and shape in a circle as wide as your pizza stone.
  3. Place dough on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet or cutting board.
  4. Brush the tops LIGHTLY with olive oil. Allow to rise for 10 mins.
  5. Top with ½ of the garlic sauce (or less, depending on how saucy you like your pizza), leaving space for a crust.
  6. Sprinkle vegan mozzarella evenly over the entire pizza.
  7. Top with pickles, and sprinkle a generous amount of dill.
  8. Bake the pizza on the bottom rack for 5 minutes.
  9. Transfer to the top rack and continue baking for another 5-10 minutes. 15 mins total cooking time. You want the cheese to be melted and the bottom to be golden brown.
  10. Remove the pizza from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  11. Slicing and serve with a side of ranch dip or hot sauce.
