We tried DiGiorno's new pineapple and pickle pizza, and it was definitely interesting.

I'm not going to lie, pineapple on pizza is not my go-to order, at all. I've heard the allure of why the sweet acidic fruit is a good topping on pizza, but I've never tried it until now.

The new pie is "made with a hand-tossed crust, creamy garlic sauce, mozzarella cheese, and toppings split right down the middle – one-half sliced dill pickles and one-half delicious chunks of pineapple," per the press release.

After taking a bite of the new DiGiorno pie, I can honestly say that this will be the last time I eat pineapple on pizza. The sweet and savory combination is just not for me. Goodbye, #TeamPineapple.

As for pickles on pizza, I had never tried the combination until now and was honestly excited. As someone who loves hot peppers on pizza, I was sure I would prefer this culinary combo. The DiGiorno pie has thick slices of pickle covering half the pizza, so pickle fans will definitely get a taste in each bite.

The tangy pickles mixed with the mozzarella cheese and garlic sauce made for a good combination. While the pickles are definitely more aligned with my topping preferences, I'll probably just stick with the OG ingredients (i.e. cheese or pepperoni).
