The real-life Albuquerque, New Mexico home that was used as Walter and Skyler White's home on Breaking Bad has, not surprisingly, become a tourist draw over the years.

The woman who lives at the house - and has been experiencing "pizza tossing" for four years since the show ended - told local Albuquerque news site KOB4 that they have chose to build a 6-foot high wrought iron fence around the famous home.

Quintana told KOB that said she loses count of how many people come to visit the house on a weekly basis. But with "hundreds" of visitors passing by over some weekends, they've decided it's time to make a change.

"We feel like we can't leave because when we, do something happens and that's ridiculous", she told KOB news.

The people who actually live there are fed up with fans of the TV show acting badly, including re-enacting a scene from the AMC television series and throwing pizzas on their roof. But even four years on from the show's finale, clearly some fans still can't get enough.

The daughter of the owner of the house says that people don't just throw pizza on the roof, they steal rocks as souvenirs, too. In an interview with the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast in 2015, he said there's "nothing original or amusing or cool" about doing it.

'They feel the need to tell us to close our garage, get out of the picture, you know - tell us what to do with our own property, ' she said.

Things seem to have gone from Breaking Bad to Baking Bad.
