[media-credit name=”Flickr” align=”aligncenter” width=”300″]Pizza 420[/media-credit]Smoke a little weed and sooner or later you are probably going to want some pizza. In LA, you can now have both at the same time.

“Ganja entrepreneur” Henry Mark has introduced SoCal to the Stoned Oven Gourmet Pizza, placing his frozen $10 pies in a handful of dispensaries. LA Weekly reports:

Each six-inch personal pizza contains 250 mg of ethanol-extracted THC concentrate from an indica-dominant hybrid strain. The concentrate is made in Mendocino by an extraction company called The Earth’s Harmony Essentials.

You can buy the frozen pies and bake at your house (get it?) or some collectives will even cook the pizza for you.  However, you are not allowed legally to eat the pizza until you leave (California is not Colorado…yet anyway).

Mark started small, but now word-of-mouth buzz in L.A. has allowed him to increase production from a few hundred pizzas a week made by hand in a small parlor to 2,000 to 3,000 a week made in a commercial kitchen.

And why make a weed pizza?

“Everyone loves pizza,” he says. He spent four months developing the recipes for his 5-Star Cheese, OG Pepperoni and Very Margarita Jane pizzas with a chef from the Soho House who is no longer involved in the project.

“You cannot taste one bit of marijuana in there. This pizza is really dangerous, because you can trick anyone!” he says.

Probably would have gone with a different selling point than “trickery” there Mark, but I hear what you are saying.

Mark advises you eat a slice of his pizza, have some water, and chill out for half an hour before having some more – you know, to make sure you are not high as fuck already.

Mark is also working on establishing his shop as a franchise, so maybe soon you will be able to grab a weed pizza outside of LA.
