This is a chicken dill pickle pizza from Clam Lake Beer Company in Cadillac, Michigan. The dish is definitely a fan favorite, the restaurant said (photo provided by Clam Lake).

Just when it appeared every pizza topping imaginable had been thought of, along comes another. 

A pickle pizza? 

Seriously?

To quote Ned Flanders in "The Simpsons," this is a dilly of a pickle, because believe it or not, pickle pizza is a fad that is gaining popularity. 

The craze really started back in September, when a Food Insider video showing how a pickle pizza is made at Rhino’s Pizzeria and Deli in Webster, New York, went viral. 

According to an article on foodnetwork.com, Rhino’s sells 30 pickle pizzas a day, which feature garlic sauce instead of the traditional marinara.

The pizza is officially called The Big Dill.

According to an article on mlive.com, pickle pizzas are gaining popularity in Michigan, with a variety of pizza shops around the state now selling them.

So, that begs the obvious question: Is this a fad that is here to stay? Or is it just too nauseating to think about, let alone eat?
