The Perfect Pickle Pie Does Exist

Leave it to Ann Kim of Pizzeria Lola and Young Joni to nail it

Did you miss the much ballyhooed pickle pizza from the Minnesota State Fair? Get down with Ann Kim’s Perfect Pickle Pie instead — the Monday night special at Pizzeria Lola this week and a temporary addition to the Young Joni menu.

The slam dunk features pickles, mozzarella, fontina, smoked onions, chile, ranch dressing, Old Dutch potato chips, and dill and might just be our second favorite pickle pizza after the Quad Cities-style Kinda Big Dill pie from QC Pizza in Mahtomedi. (That ones swaps the ranch for a homemade garlic dill sauce, piles on the mozzarella, and goes berserk with smoky Canadian bacon.)

P.S. If you haven’t watched the Ann Kim episode of Chef’s Table, you’re missing out. The beautifully shot documentary tells the stories of six pizzaiolos around the world, including Chris Bianco in Phoenix, Sarah Minnick in Portland, Gabriele Bonci and Franco Pepeingrani in Italy, Yoshihiro Imai in Japan, and, of course Chef Kim, our own pizza maker extraordinaire.
