Are you a pizza-lover, but also a dairy-free eater? The two don’t have to be mutually exclusive!
In fact, it’s more than possible to enjoy pizza if you’re dairy free. Of course, pizza is known as being a super cheesy, dairy-filled meal. But, in our modern day and age, where eating dairy-free and plantbased are widely accepted, there are tons of dairy-alternatives out there that are the perfect replacements for a cheese topping. You can purchase these at many grocery stores or online to make your own, dairy-free pizza at home, or go for a pre-made pizza that uses a dairy-free cheese-alternative.
Looking for the best pre-made, dairy-free pizza that’s also 100% plantbased?

How Can I Make the Best Dairy-free Pizza at Home?
Looking to chef up the best dairy-free pizza at home? Let’s do it!
Making a dairy-free pizza in your own kitchen is simple. Here are some quick, easy steps to do so, as well as our suggestions for the best dairy-free cheese alternatives for pizza.
Fortunately, most pizza doughs, whether you’re following a recipe to make one from scratch, or buying a pre-made one from the store, do not contain dairy. In fact, most pizza doughs are fully vegan by nature, as they contain flour, yeast, olive oil, water, and salt. Furthermore, most marinara sauces are dairy-free and vegan, but be sure to check the label to make sure that your sauce of choice doesn’t contain cheese or milk.
Of course, the next traditional pizza topping is cheese… But not to worry! Your dairy-free pizza is far from doomed. The best way to make a dairy-free pizza at home is to buy pre-made, vegan cheese from your local grocery store to sprinkle on top of your pizza. Of course, you can also opt to forgo cheese all together and to just load your pizza up with sauce, veggies, and other fun toppings. But, there are lots of dairy-free cheese alternatives out there, many of which are absolutely delicious! Here are a few of our personal favorites:
The most traditional cheese to sprinkle atop pizza is mozzarella. And as it turns out, there are plenty of tasty, dairy-free mozzarellas out there that will take your vegan pizza to the next level! The best of the best include the Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Mozzarella, the So Delicious Plant-based Mozzarella Style Shreds, and the Just Like Mozzarella Style Shreds. Liberally sprinkle one (or all!) of these dairy-free mozzarellas on top of your pizza, and voilà! Deliciousness– dairy-free style.
- Dairy-Free Ricotta
Another yummy cheese to throw on pizza is ricotta. Like with mozzarella, there are also some great, dairy-free alternatives out there for this type of cheese! One of our favorites is the Tofutti Better Than Ricotta Cheese. Bonus tip: Use this type of cheese with a pesto sauce, garlic, and spinach for a unique, yet oh-so-tasty pizza.
Lastly, everybody loves a sprinkle of parmesan on top of their pizza! For a dairy-free alternative to parmesan you can try the Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Parmesan, or, for an even more nutritious option, try Nutritional Yeast, which is an excellent source of vital nutrients and has a naturally cheesy flavor. How cool is that?
Personalize the rest of your pizza with as many dairy-free toppings as your heart desires. Go for your favorite veggies, such as onions and peppers and some meat toppings (or vegan meat toppings!) like sausage or pepperoni. Toss your pizza in the oven, and finish it off with some other dairy-free toppings such as fresh arugula or a balsamic glaze. Just like that, you’ve made the best dairy free pizza!
