Here's a reason to be proud to be an American.

On Friday, July 1, all 80 Hungry Howie's locations across Tampa Bay will launch a new pickle bacon ranch pizza, available for both pickup and dill-ivery.

"The smoky chunks of bacon combine with the tangy ranch and tart pickles to create a highly craveable, one-of-a-kind flavor that is destined be a summer must-try," a press release says.

Howie's COO Tom Kazbour said inspiration for the pie came from the increasing popularity of pickles, but dills on slices has been a staple in Tampa Bay since at last year when the Florida State Fair blew our minds and buttholes out with its own pickle pizza from Max's.

Other local spots that carry pickle pizzas include South Tampa's Gourmet Pizza Company which has both meat and Beyond burger pizzas and Dunedin's Madison Avenue Pizza which has its own homemade dill sauce.

Howie's prices depend on the size of the pie, and while the special is only available for a limited amount of time, a Howie's spokesperson told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay that the length of availability will depend on how popular the pizza is with customers.
