Out of anger, the teacher-turned-meth baron chucks the pizza onto the roof - a response that fans are replicating on Quintana's house.

The New Mexico house used on the AMC show as the home of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his family has become a popular tourist attraction over the years, but its current residents aren't pleased.

To keep people away from the Albuquerque, New Mexico home, Joanne Quintana says they have made a decision to install a six-foot high wrought iron fence around the perimeter.

"They feel the need to tell us to close our garage, get out of the picture, you know, tell us what to do on our own property", Joanne Quintana tells KOB.

And Frank Sandoval, who runs the Breaking Bad RV Tours, says he completely understands.

It's been seven years since the episode has aired and fans still visit the real-life Albuquerque home - owned by the Quintana family - and fling their own pizzas like a frisbee onto the roof.

She said her home is bombarded on a weekly basis with countless tourists - up to "hundreds" on one weekend - seeking photographs and stealing rocks for souvenirs.

"We don't want to gate ourselves in", she said.

Things seem to have gone from Breaking Bad to Baking Bad. "They park in front of our driveway and block us in", a neighbor told KRQE, an Albuquerque news channel.

"There is nothing original, or amusing, or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady's roof", Gilligan said. Quintana's mother owns the home.
