When it comes to pizza toppings, there are plenty of controversial ones.

Nothing gets people more riled up than the great pineapple debate, and there’s always a heated discussion over whether to go for a tomato or BBQ base, too.

But one topping we can absolutely get behind is pickles – give us all the pickles. As for the internet? It seems not everybody is as convinced.

Yup, TikTok account @foodyfetish has got everyone talking about the controversial topping, after sharing a (frankly mouthwatering) video of a pizza covered in dill pickles.

Check it out if you don’t believe us.

The clip is of a pie from Rick’s Pizza at the Miami Youth Fair in the US, and it has amassed over 11,300 comments and 196,500 likes.

Apparently the pizza has speciality dill sauce on top, as well as fresh mozzarella and crunchy dill pickles. Could it get any better?! Well, it seems not everyone was as enthused as us.

“NO…just…NO,” wrote one person in the comments.

Whilst another joked: “Whoever ordered this call the police.”

“Hell nah you need help,” said a third.

As a fourth joked: “I think it’s time we make an apology to pineapple on pizza…”

However, it’s not all pickle slander. There were others who were much more on board, proving demand for the new pizza topping.

“So I’m not the only one eating pickles on pizza? I put them on pizza every time,” said one.

Whilst another wrote: “Immediately yes.”

“Pickles on pizza actually slaps,” chimed in somebody else.

This isn’t the first time pickles have been placed on a pizza. In fact, you can scroll through an abundance of videos the dill delicacy on the video sharing app.

Papa John’s also released a slightly different pickle pizza last year, which saw the crust filled with Branston pickle. Plus, Domino’s previously released a cheeseburger pizza with pickles aplenty on top.

We’re still waiting for one of our favourite pizza chains to be bold enough to bring this to their menu full-time, but until then you can rest assured we’ll be customising our pizzas so they’re slathered in pickles.

Are you with us?!
