It’s hard to imagine a better time for a service like this one: Marie Jane’s Cannabis Connection, located in Corvallis, Oregon, is now delivering housemade pizza along with marijuana, an ideal arrangement for customers with little else to do during the coronavirus quarantine.
In a press release, Marie Jane’s said it’s the first marijuana dispensary in the country to add in-house pizza to a pot delivery menu.
The Marie Jane’s Pizza menu includes a variety of 14-inch combos, though customers can also “roll their own” from a selection of toppings.
Executive Chef Ed Barbeau, owner of Pisano’s Woodfired Pizza—which was rated best pizza in Oregon by USA Today in 2019—was brought in to develop the recipes. “My number-one priority is to supply all the ingredients customers need to make memorable moments, even if the memories of those moments are a little fuzzy,” said Marie Jane’s owner, Christina Jancila. “Good pizza is nice, but not memorable. Our goal was to come out of the gate offering the best pizza in town. With Ed’s help, we are doing exactly that.”
Barbeau, who cut his teeth making pizza in Naples, Italy, refers to his recipe as “Pacific Northwest Style.” It’s similar to Neapolitan pizza but has been tailored to suit the regional palate of Oregonians. The crust is thin in the middle and light, crisp and airy on the outside. The sauce is described as “elegant and understated.” Toppings include premium whole-milk mozzarella made with a kiss of buffalo milk, high-end meats and fresh vegetables.
None of Marie Jane’s food contains cannabis, the press release notes.
Once a customer decides upon a food order, they must call the dispensary at 971-301-4POT (4768) where they can speak to a “budtender” about daily cannabis specials and complete the transaction. Everything available in the dispensary is available for delivery. Pickup orders are also accepted.Jancila holds a master’s degree in social work and is heavily involved with the local homeless and prison community.
