Top it Off: Cheese

Non-dairy and vegan cheese substitutes make it easy for almost anyone to enjoy this classic pizza topping. Daiya® and GoVeggie® are both delicious, dairy-free and soy-free options available in mozzarella and cheddar flavors. If you're ok with dairy but prefer organic, then Rumiano® Organic Shredded Cheese is a wholesome option for your pizza.

Don't Stop There!

Just because it's National Cheese Pizza Day doesn't mean you can't add your favorite toppings. Try topping your pizza with pure ingredients like crushed tomatoes, organic olives, fresh spinach, or herbs.

    Amazing article! Having a daughter with severe and multiple anaphylactic food allergies it's hard to find many things that are helpful or something that lets those aware of them. My daughter can't have wheat, milk (dairy products), eggs, fish, shellfish, meat, gelatin, soy, peanuts, tree-nuts, coconut, sunflower, sesame, pumpkin seeds, hemp, flax or chia seeds among other seeds. So most things are homemade for her and have to ensure anything is free from cross-contact for her.
