Making cannabis-infused pizza is simple and can also provide health benefits
Everyone succumbs to the temptation of a pizza, and it’s something you can’t hide. Imagine if you add a very special ingredient like marijuana to make a “pizza that takes you to the clouds.” Gastronomy has already seen how cannabis is gradually being used to create game-changing dishes, so creating a homemade pizza with cannabis is no longer a far-fetched idea. In fact, the result is delicious and perfect to enjoy with friends this weekend.
To start this recipe, you will need the following:
1 C or about 7-14 grams of ground and decarboxylated cannabis
1 C of olive or coconut oil infused with cannabis
Water bath, saucepan, or crockpot
Start by placing 1¾ cups of warm water in a bowl and sprinkle the yeast over the water. Allow the yeast to dissolve in the water, which should take about two minutes. Add the salt, flour and infused olive oil and mix for about five minutes until the flour is incorporated and the dough is formed.
Dust the countertop with a little flour and place the dough on top. Knead the dough lightly for about four minutes until smooth, and then cut it into four equal parts. Wrap both pieces of dough in plastic bags and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
Once that step is complete, take the pieces of dough and form them into soft, firm balls on a baking sheet dusted with flour or lined with parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. Each ball of dough should rise and double in size. Now that your dough balls are ready, roll out each to about 10 inches in diameter and about ½-inch thick.
Prepare the toppings, sauce, and cheese you want to use. About one-third to one-half cup of tomato sauce and the same amount of cheese should be enough to top a pizza. If you have a pizza stone, place it on a rack in the lower half of the oven. Preheat the oven to 475°F (245°C) and bake the pizza for about 10 to 15 minutes, keeping a close eye on things so the dough doesn’t overcook. Remove, cut into slices as you see fit, and serve.
