Pizza Hut is jumping on the TikTok pickle craze with The Pickle Pizza, available this weekend only in just one New York City location.

Customers can try the very limited-time pickle-topped pizza this Friday through Sunday at the Pizza Hut unit at 932 Eighth Ave. in Manhattan.  It's available for carryout only for $17.99 and must be ordered in-store.

The pizza starts with a hand-tossed crust that’s sauced with buttermilk ranch, then topped with cheese, Nashville hot-seasoned breaded chicken and onions, then finished with spicy dill pickles and a drizzle of ranch.

TikTok influencers have recently been showing off creative ways to incorporate pickles in recipes, Pizza Hut noticed, so the Plano, Texas-based chain decided to try the idea as a pizza topping.

“We're always looking for innovative ways to add new tastes and textures to our dishes, and pickles have been gaining popularity due to their versatility,” Penny Shaheen, Pizza Hut’s head of food innovation, said in a statement. “With our new Pickle Pizza, we’re tapping into the latest food trends while also putting culinary thought into how they come to life on a pizza. Our recipe is all about great flavor, balancing the tanginess of pickles with other classic ingredients we know taste good on our beloved pizza.”
