I know I talk about lactose intolerance quite a bit when it comes to posting recipes. When I found out I was lactose intolerant (2007), I had to give up so many of my favorite foods. One of those delicious foods was pizza (along with grilled cheese sandwiches)! I didn’t eat pizza for a few years, which was quite sad. However, I’ve recently found a way to remedy the problem of cheese on pizza! In fact, this solution is so fantastic that my entire family ate this pizza for lunch on Christmas!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Pizza Crust (I buy mine pre-made, without lactose)
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Spinach (optional)
  • Red or Orange Pepper (optional)
  • Red onion (optional)
  • Pepperoni (optional)
  • Kraft or Cabot Cheese **

**I just recently discovered that many of the Kraft cheeses say “0g lactose” on the packages. YAY!! I’m so happy that I’ve found a cheaper cheese that is lactose free! I LOVE Cabot Cheeses, but they are 2-3 dollars more than Kraft, so for every day use I now have a more practical option!

Put whatever toppings you want on the pizza and cook it up! The pizza is delicious, and I love having a more healthy and lactose free version to make for myself!

Making homemade pizzas is also great because you get to choose whatever toppings you like! Another helpful hint: A jar of pizza sauce generally covers 2-3 pizzas, and a bag of pepperoni covers at least that many. If you aren’t making a lot of pizzas at once, simply freeze the two items and pull them out right before you make your next pizza! It’s a tiny hassle but it saves lots of money!


Now it’s your turn to share! Have you ever made homemade pizza before? What are your favorite pizza toppings?
