Fresh Coast’s Boar’s Head Dill Pickle Pizza

We know what you’re thinking: “A pickle pizza? Ew.” Well, stop that; we suspect even people who don’t like pickles will like this pizza. It’s that good. Officially known as the Boar’s Head Dill Pickle Pizza, this stone-baked creation — available at Fresh Coast Market — spreads extra-large but thinly sliced Boar’s Head dill pickles and a dotting of Boar’s Head ham atop what feels like the creamiest cream cheese and gooiest mozzarella to ever have met your mouth. More milky than straight-up salty, the garlic-dappled cheeses here make the ideal mate for the pickles, which mellow during their time in the oven and bear not the vinegary bite you’re expecting but rather, a piquant zing we adore. Finally, the crust. Pillow-soft, slightly sweet, and every single time we’ve ordered (which has been … a lot), perfectly toasted; never burnt or undercooked. (We don’t recommend changing a thing unless your diet absolutely requires, but gluten-free and cauliflower crust options are available too.) $12 for the 10-inch; $17 for the 14-inch. Find Fresh Coast Market at 7270 N. Long Lake Rd. in Traverse City. (231) 922-7712.
