Pizzas often get their acidic zip from tomatoes. But what would happen if you threw some spicy and tangy pickles on that pie? You can find out now through the end of January at 40 North, as the pizza restaurant from Clint Elmore has collaborated with Austin barbecue stand-out La Barbecue for a special spicy pickle pizza, along with pulled pork calzones and sausage pizzas. One dollar from each pizza sale with benefit Austin Pets Alive, as chosen by La Barbecue for the special collab. 40 North is located at 900 W. 10th. and is open Sunday-Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Thursday-Saturday until 10 p.m.
