    A Quincy, Massachusetts, dispensary has a new spin on marijuana-infused edibles: a pub-style cheese pizza.

    Ermont, Inc., a non-profit medical marijuana dispensary that specializes in edibles, is now cooking up six-inch personal pizza pies infused with a 125mg dose of THC distillate.

    The enhanced pizzas are created on-site and frozen so they can be sold to the dispensary’s medical marijuana patients.

    The development was led by operations manager Seth Yaffe, cannabinoid infusion consultant Adam Gendreau, and chef Keith Brooks.

    "The style of our infused pizza was inspired by what’s commonly known throughout the South Shore as 'bar pizza' – thin, crispy crust, well-done cheese and tomato sauce spread to the edge of a metal pan," said Brooks. "It was a delight to make, and it’s delicious."

    The cheese pizzas sell for $38 apiece. The company has sold about 200 already. Yaffe says if patients want toppings, they can add their own.

    The THC-filled pizzas join the company’s menu that includes candy, cookies, olive oil, hot sauce mac and cheese, lozenges, muffins and other edibles.

    Only people with state-issued medical marijuana ID cards are eligible to buy the pies.
