On today's installment of experimental chefs continuing to defile the sanctity of pizza, it seems pineapples may have finally met their match in the battle for which pizza-bastardizing topping reigns supreme – none other than the salty, briny, vinegar snap of pickles. Earlier this week, a viral Insider video reemerged depicting Rhino Pizza's strange process behind their “Big Dill” pizza, topping a crust with homemade garlic sauce, mozzarella, and dill pickles and a sprinkling of dill seasoning – and per their recommendation, a squirt or two of ranch dressing.

Despite sounding certifiably terrible, apparently, it's a hit –  “People have been coming from all over – Buffalo, Syracuse, Pennsylvania,” chef at the of the upstate New York-based eatery, Cindy Arena explained when the dish first went viral in 2018, noting its particular popularity among pregnant women. 

Although Insider's aforementioned video first hit the internet a few years back, the outlet reposted the clip on Monday, sparking widespread shock and outrage, with pizza purists largely decrying … 

… condemning …

…and denouncing the sordid pie. 

… with New Jersey's official state Twitter chiming in on the matter, gracefully throwing a dig at New York's famed – albeit second to Chicago's deep-dish/tavern-style pizza offerings – slices.  

So folks, remember – although pineapples (and occasionally apology M&Ms if you're dating a Genovian princess in an early 2000s coming-of-age comedy) definitively belong on pizza, pickles are best left as sandwich accouterment. Dill with it.
