A future 100 TeV collider provides the opportunity to study the production of Higgs at large transverse momentum $p_T$. The effective field theory for Higgs, obtained by integrating out the top quark, breaks down when $p_T$ is larger than 200 GeV. We calculate the $p_T$ distribution at much larger $p_T$ using the framework of factorization, in which the cross section is expressed as convolutions of hard-scattering cross sections and fragmentation functions, with the leading logarithms of $p_T^2/m_t^2$ resummed to all orders. By separating the scales $m_t$ and $p_T$, the higher order radiative correction can be greatly simplified.
