When you are in Canada, you should not miss their Saskatchewan favorite, Dill pickle vodka.
For starters, pickle refers to pickled cucumber or a process fermenting cucumber in brine vinegar. To give a twist, instead of preserving cucumber in vinegar, we deep it in vodka for three days and combine it with spring fresh dill, whole black peppercorns, mustard seed, garlic clove. Aside from its taste, Dill Pickle also has its health benefits such as a good pre and post workout drink, good for digestion, a powerful antioxidant, and a remedy for PMS. Vodka also has impressive health benefits such as it is known to aid in reducing stress, ease headaches and numbing pains, and has protective effect against heart diseases.

If ever your dough is already prepared, place the unbaked crust on a baking sheet. Brush thin coating of olive oil over the top of the crust.
Spread pizza sauce on the crust depending on your preference. For this recipe, we prefer white pizza so a little over garlic infused olive oil will do.
