Copycat Pickle Pizza

Calling all pickle lovers! This copycat pickle pizza is amazing with a white garlic sauce and lots of dill goodness!

Sometimes I find food pictures on Pinterest that are not linked to any website or recipe in any way shape or form. But I can be persistent and if I can't find the recipe, I'll try and find a description of what the food is. This particular recipe was one I had to come up with on my own. The pizza is a copycat of one you can find at Rhino's Pizzeria in Webster, New York and Rochester, New York. I am no where near New York (and we were still a few hours away when we did live in New York), so I hunted to see if there was a description of what was on the pizza. Their website says a white garlic pizza topped with mozzarella, dill pickles, and a dill weed sprinkle. I found a super amazing white garlic pizza sauce and it's killer and personally the reason why I think this is such a good recipe. I did not use a dill weed sprinkle because I did a thing of where I thought I had some, so I didn't pick any up at the store and then discovered in the middle of making it that I had no dill weed. Obviously that isn't a dealbreaker. If you love pickles, make this pizza. It's so awesome!

What you need:
For the white garlic pizza sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
For the pizza:
  • Your favorite pizza dough
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Pickle slices
  • Dill weed
  1. For the white garlic pizza sauce: Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Then whisk in flour, pepper, salt, and oregano.
  3. Slowly whisk in milk until well combined. Then add Parmesan cheese. Continue to whisk occasionally until cheese melts and desired thickness is reached.
  4. For the pizza: Roll out pizza dough and place on a pizza pan. 
  5. Top with white garlic pizza sauce.
  6. Top with shredded mozzarella, pickle slices, and sprinkle with dill weed.
  7. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown on edges and cheese has melted.

I have basically been trying to find all sorts of dill treats, so if you know of any, please leave me a link in the comments! I definitely want to try this 5-Minute Dill Pickle Chex Mix from Averie Cooks. I can personally vouch for this Fried Pork Chops with Dill Pickle Gravy because I've made it and posted it and LOVED it.
