Two Guys and a Pizza Place gained some notoriety from John Catucci on the show “You Gotta Eat Here” back in 2015. Catucci’s main takeaway from his visit to the Lethbridge hotspot was the unusual pizzas and the fact that so much of what goes on that pies are made in-house. “He puts pickles and mayo on pizza, but it works,” said Catucci, according to the Calgary Herald.
Sure enough, Two Guys’ has some surprising pizzas on their roster. The cheeseburger pizza features beef, bacon, pickles, cheddar, a “mayo swirl,” and more. Then, you’ve got the “Kinda Big Dill,” which is dill pickle forward, featuring garlic dill aioli, mozza, provolone, bacon, pickles (lots of pickles), goat cheese, fresh dill and parmesan on top.
