Paper Thin Pizza is preparing to open its doors in a few days and it will offer a limited number of seats for indoor dining, plus special hemp microgreens topping by request. In place of basil, customers will be able to order hemp greens to top off their pizzas, which is visually striking and a nutritious superfood.
Washington State hemp food company Ziese Farms provides the hemp leaf, and it has worked with the FDA, USDA and White House to secure allowances for food use and cultivation methods. As Ziese Farms founder Melissa Heldreth says, "The hemp industry is focused on the flower. Ziese Farms believes the entire plant holds promise and there is a larger need for plant-based nutrition and protein moving forward."
