What Is Marijuana Pizza?
Pizza is one of those comfort foods you rely on when you don’t feel like cooking. It can be a party food to feed a crowd of people, or it can be something you eat leftover slices of when you’re in a hurry for some nutrition — yes, pizza is nutritious. It contains representatives from the basic food groups, and a balance of nutrients.
Pizza is also soothing and familiar when you don’t have the energy to deal with all those crunchy vegetables or meat substitutes you can’t pronounce. When you’re sick or in pain, pizza is like an old friend who can get you to eat when you just don’t want to.
Marijuana pizza combines all the comfort of a food almost everyone likes with the medicinal powers of marijuana that will ease your pain and calm your nerves. At some dispensaries, you can buy a personal pizza with your medicinal marijuana already baked right in. There are also ways to make this healing food yourself at home.
Is Marijuana Pizza Effective?
Marijuana pizza is as effective as the marijuana products you use as your ingredients. Making your own pizza gives you control over how much of which strain you’re getting in each meal. You want to pay attention to the dosing versus portion size. Whatever you normally take for one dose is what you should put on your pizza. If you double that, you won’t want to eat the whole pizza in one sitting.
How to make homemade pizza dough with cannabis (prescription for 4 people).
For its elaboration you will need:
- 400 grams of flour (if it is specially designed for this type of recipe, better than better because it will be crunchier)
- 200 ml of water
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons of cannabis oil (in this case, you can do it yourself – I’ll explain how – or much simpler, you can buy it. We recommend hemp oil!!
Before making the dough, I explain briefly (because I don’t want to focus on it) how to make cannabis oil with olive oil for cooking. You need something:
- olive oil,
- a strainer
- 30 grams of cannabis (which will be used for several recipes).
Step 1: Grind the cannabis as much as possible.
Step 2: In a saucepan, heat the oil over low heat and when hot, pour in the cannabis.
Step 3: Stir occasionally for two hours.
Step 4: After this time, take the container where you want to keep the oil – which can be closed – and filter the oil. You can squeeze the pieces of cannabis a little, but keep in mind that nothing falls into the container. Leave to cool and keep in a dry place away from the sun.
Now that you know how to make the oil, you decide whether you want to make it in-house or you prefer to buy it. In any case, the steps to make a cannabis pizza dough are as follows:
Step 1: Mix all ingredients in a bowl and knead until compact. It will be ready when it no longer attaches to your hands.TIP: While you are preparing it, dip your hands in flour, so it will be cheaper to handle it until it is ready.
Step 2: Let stand a few minutes (5-10 minutes will be enough, but if it is 20, better than better).
Step 3: On a clean table sprinkle a little flour and put the dough you left in the shape of a ball and start stretching it on the sides. The easiest thing is to make a square, but if you want it round, you can stretch it and cut it to the size of a cake mould, for example.
How to make cannabis tomatoes for pizza
If you want the tomato to be the one that contains the secret ingredient we’ve already talked about, take note of the simple way to do it. You’re gonna need:
- 180 grams of crushed tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons of cannabis oil (homemade or purchased)
- 2 tablespoons of cannabis butter (here the recipe link) or, if not, 4 tablespoons of oil, although the combination of the two gives it a better flavour
- Half a cup of water
- Half onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 bay leaf
- salt, pepper and thyme to taste (a half spoonful will suffice, but depends on your taste)
Once you have all the ingredients, the steps to make homemade cannabis tomato sauce are as follows:
Step 1: Heat oil over medium heat. Once the temperature is right, add the onion and garlic clove, taking care not to burn them. Why? If it burns, the burnt flavour will remain in the tomato sauce. Just brown them.
Step 2: once golden, add the remaining ingredients: tomato, water, bay leaf, salt and pepper to taste.
Step 3: stir occasionally until all ingredients are well integrated and cover, leaving to rest for a few minutes on medium-low heat.
Step 4: after this time, your tomato sauce will be ready, but to make it perfect, you can pass it in the blender and remove the onion or garlic pieces, so that it remains light. Delicious tomato lollipop!
The final touch to make a Happy Pizza
This is the last part of the cannabis pizza recipe. We’ve already seen how to make pizza dough with cannabis; we’ve also seen how to make homemade tomatoes with cannabis, which, as you know, is the basis of all pizza in the world, and now you just have to choose the ingredients you’re going to add to your pizza.
Personally, I like simple pizzas: ham and cheese; ham, cheese and mushrooms or pineapple; even with an egg in the middle! I love it when the yellow opens all over the pizza! ?I know it sounds dirty, but it’s… so delicious!
But, each taste, choose the ingredients you like best and add them to the homemade tomato sauce you’ve already poured on the pizza dough. It is not a question of overflowing either, but of bathing her well so that she soaks the dough.
Finally, the final touch: sprinkle a pinch of crushed cannabis as if it were oregano. What do we get this way? That the taste and aroma of cannabis be soaked in pizza
Have you already prepared it? Then, open the oven that you have previously warmed and for 10 minutes at 200 degrees and introduce the pizza carefully so as not to drop anything. In 20-25 minutes (depending on the type of dough you have made), it will be ready and crunchy.
Don’t forget the details of preheating the oven; it is important that it is hot enough for cannabis to work,
Finally, if you like crispy pastry well enough, when it’s almost ready, add 3 to 5 minutes of grill, making sure it doesn’t burn, roast it a little.
