This Minnesota Pizza Nearly Broke The Internet
There are a lot of places you can get pizza these days, but a Minnesota pizza joint has nearly broken the Internet with its specialty pizza.
You never know what's going to go viral online these days. Outside of cute cat videos, of course. Like this Facebook video from Foodbeast that featured a Dill Pickle Pizza made at a pizzeria right here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
It's actually a dill pickle pizza from QC Pizza in Mahtomedi, which is about an hour and a half north of Rochester, just a block of I-694 near the Century exit. The pizza that broke the Interwebs last week is actually called the 'It's Kind Of A Big Deal' pizza, and a is a combination of smoked Canadian bacon, layers of pickles, garlic dill sauce and mozzarella cheese.
It went viral back on June 21st, when the food site Foodbeast posted a video about the pizza. Since that time, their Facebook video has been viewed over 11 million times! Hoo boy! THAT is going viral, alright!
I guess most people don't think of putting dill pickle slices on their pizza, and I confess, I haven't tried it, either. But what's not to like? All those ingredients seem to go so seamlessly together, I'm surprised a dill pickle pizza hasn't been tried before. (Well, I'm guessing it probably has, it just hasn't garnered this much online attention before.)
You can take a look at the video on the QC Pizza website HERE. And here's a YouTube video featuring the same 'It's Kind Of A Big Dill' pizza from QC Pizza...
