Weed-Laced Pizza Sauce Might Be Coming to Canada

file521340931579

The legalization of marijuana in certain states has brought forth some interesting weed-food concoctions. The Burweedo is a thing. And who can forget Hashees peanutbutter cups? Now you can have weed cooked right into your pizza.

Denver Post reported that Unique Pizza and Subs, a Pennsylvania-based restaurant is working with Colorado chefs who specialize in weed-infused food to make a signature cannabis-filled pizza sauce.

A little doubt settled in the minds of Unique Pizza owners, as a weed-based pizza isn’t exactly consistent with their family image, but the company’s biggest shareholder is fascinated with the idea and would love to take the sauce to Canadian ground. With Canadian courts ruling that prohibition of weed-infused foods to be “unconstitutional”  last week, the door has been opened for weedibles such as this pizza sauce to roll out.

So it looks like Canada might steal this one from us, but it’s OK because we stole Poutine from them, replaced the fries with ramen and threw an egg on top. ‘Murica!

Frozen Mojito Pie

I’m not a good thief.

A few weeks ago I was sitting in a doctor’s waiting room, chatting with the others, looking through magazines, reading, and enjoying the “You might be suffering from XYZ” articles, and “Take ABC Drugs for only $200 a pill”.

Then I came across this photo:

What I did next is something that any of you would have done; I ripped the page off and shoved it in my purse! Quickly!

The entire ride home involved thoughts of cold Mojitos and frozen pies. Ahhh.

As soon as I arrived, I opened up my purse, took out the photo and… panic! Where’s the RECIPE?!?

All I found was an ad for Milk – no recipe!

I thought that the recipe would be on the back of the photo. (Isn’t that where they always are?)

I was so nervous tearing a page from a magazine that did not belong to me,  that I did not even think to see if there was a recipe somewhere near the photo. (insert “duh” emoticon here.)

Sigh…

After a long search, and a couple of hits and misses, I found the one!

I have made this pie three times so far, and it has not failed me – everyone loves it. It’s cold, it’s creamy, minty, sweet, and a bit savory.

 

Frozen Mojito Pie


You will need:

1 cup finely crushed pretzels

5 tablespoons butter, melted

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup sugar

Zest from 1 large lime

Juice from 1 large lime (if the limes you are using are really small, use two of them)

2 to 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint (I like it minty, so I use 3 tbsp. of mint)

2 cups Whipped Topping

 

Directions:

In a medium sized bowl mix together the pretzel crumbs and the butter.

Press the pretzels onto the bottom of an 8-inch springform pan, or a round pan lined with plastic wrap.

Freeze the crust for at least one hour.

In your mixer’s bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, zest, juice, and mint. Mix until well blended.

Whisk in the whipped topping.

Spoon the filling over the crust.

Freeze for at least 6 hours. Over night is best.

Carefully remove the pie from the pan and top it with some crushed pretzels and thin slices of lime.

Keep it frozen.
