Everyone loves a good pizza. There’s not a single food quite like it.
But for some, pizza is made even better with one special ingredient: Weed.
That’s right. Cannabis pizza has been baked, barbecued, microwaved, and even wood-fired in kitchens across America for many years.
You’re ready to get in on the action, and we completely understand why!
We’ll share our simple recipe -- including hacks to make it even easier and our favorite topping combos — for an amazing marijuana pizza that will have you coming back for seconds.

Why Make Cannabis Pizza?
It’s a tale as old as time…
… and we’ve all been there. So we know that you can order pizza to your front door, so why bother making it, right?
We’ll give you two good reasons.
First, smoking pot vs. using it to make edibles each produce a very different high. We’re fans of both and think that pizza and weed go hand-in-hand. So why not make them together for a happy high you’ll be feeling for hours.
Plus, we love a good homemade pizza and believe that making your own is not only satisfying but it gives you control over the ingredients and the amount (and strain) of marijuana you use.
However, if you’re still not up for cooking, many companies offer pre-made weed-infused pizza that you can have shipped to your front door.
Can You Get High From Pizza?
You can get high from cannabis pizza. Adding THC to your pizza dough, sauce, or toppings will produce a psychoactive effect. If you’re not interested in getting high, then leave the THC out of the pizza. CBD can be added for a relaxing and calming effect without the high.
5 Ingredients You’ll Need to Make Cannabis Pizza
Okay, before we get into the meat of the recipe, let’s make sure you have all the needed ingredients on hand.
We’ll offer alternatives to the steps below if you want to keep the recipe simple, so stay with us, we promise this will be fun.
#1: Decarboxylated Weed
Wait, what the heck is decarboxylated weed? Don’t worry! It’s a tongue-twister of a word, but it means cooking your weed to activate the compounds in the plant.
The process isn’t tough, it just takes a little bit of time.
First, preheat your oven to 220-245 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, grind up the weed you plan to use for the cannabis pizza. Lay it on a baking tray and pop it into the oven for 30-45 minutes.
Be sure it doesn’t burn, and keep your room ventilated to avoid a very strong smell.
Decarboxylating seems like a lot of work just for a pizza, but if you don’t go through this process, you’re basically wasting your weed.
#2: Cannabis-Infused Oil
Once you’ve decarboxylated your weed, you’re ready to make the oil for your pizza.
All you need is …
Skip steps one AND two by purchasing pre-made weed-infused oil for your pizza. Bento Delivery is the Bay Area’s premier marijuana delivery dispensary and we can deliver weed-infused oil right to your front door!

Can You Put Cannabutter on Pizza?
Absolutely! Cannabutter is fantastic on pizza, especially mixed in with a homemade sauce. We recommend making cannabutter in advance (and in bulk) so that you always have it on hand when you feel the hankering for a delicious cannabis pizza.

#3: Pizza Crust
Let’s get started with the crust:
This is an easy NY-style pizza crust that will make about four pizza balls for a medium-sized pizza. You can make less, or you can freeze your pizza crust for later use.
Here’s what to do:
You’re ready to roll out your dough and add sauce and toppings!
TIME-SAVING TIP: Make this process easier by purchasing store-bought pizza crust and drizzling with weed-infused oil on top.
#4: Pizza Sauce
Now, for the sauce:
Making your homemade sauce:
TIME-SAVING TIP: Buy your favorite store-brand sauce and add your infused oil and cannabutter.
Finally, it’s time for the toppings:
Keep in mind, if you have added THC-infused oil to your dough and your sauce, you may not need to drizzle additional on top of your cooked pizza.
TIME-SAVING TIP: Purchase pre-shredded mozzarella for a quick and easy topping.
How to Make Delicious Cannabis Pizza
Now comes the time to assemble your pizza! Your oven should be preheated to 475°F and ready to go.
Top Tips for Making Cannabis Pizza
#1: Get Creative With The Toppings
Playing around with toppings is a lot of fun! And just like you can add your favorite flavors through toppings, you can also add flavor with the oil you use.
If you're feeling creative and ambitious, you can make your pizza extra special by using a combination of ingredients and THC-infused oils based on their flavor profile.

#2: Take It Slice by Slice
If you’re new to edibles, then it’s best to eat your THC pizza slowly — one slice at a time. Edibles aren’t instant, like smoking or vaping, you need to allow time for the effects to kick in.
Oftentimes, people will eat a slice, think it’s not working, then eat more. Fifteen minutes later, they’re realizing their mistake.
We don’t want you to have a bad weed pizza trip, so ease your way into it!
#3: Freeze Some for Another Day
The dough recipe above will make four 10” pizzas. You can choose to make all the pizzas at once and freeze them for another day (pre-cooked cannabis pizza will last up to 6 months in the freezer).
Or, you can freeze the uncooked pizza dough for up to 3 months (4 months if it’s vacuum-sealed). But don’t defrost and refreeze, this never works out well.
Carry-Out Cannabis Pizza?
It’s time to be honest with yourself…
Maybe you don’t have time to make pizza, or maybe you have a favorite local pizza joint that you’re just not ready to part with.
The good news? You don’t have to make cannabis pizza from scratch!
You can order your just-cheese or fully-loaded pizza (we all have our preferences) for delivery and simply drizzle with weed-infused oil.
You don’t even have to make the oil yourself! Schedule your order with Bento Delivery. We’ll bring the oil to you… and who knows, we might even beat the pizza delivery guy!
