Dairy-free Cheese Pizza: How to Make it and Where to Buy it

If you eat dairy-free, then you’re familiar with this fact: lots of foods and meals contain dairy!

Unfortunately, it can be hard to eat out at restaurants or to opt for pre-made meals when trying to avoid dairy for health, environmental, or allergy reasons. And, if you’re dairy-free, one meal that you may think of as a “no-go” is pizza. Pizza is known for containing cheese, making it quite often, not dairy-free friendly. But you may be surprised to know that in our modern world where eating dairy-free and plantbased is more normalized than ever, there are quite a few options for 100% dairy-free, pre-made cheeses and pizzas on the market. That’s right– you can still enjoy the wonderful taste of pizza, even while maintaining a dairy-free diet.

Today, we’re letting you in on how you can make dairy-free pizzas at home, as well as where you can buy fully pre-made, dairy-free pizzas. There’s no need to miss out on pizza on a dairy-free diet! In fact, dairy-free, plantbased pizzas can be healthier and tastier than traditionally-made pizzas.

Looking for a pre-made, dairy-free pizza that’s also 100% plantbased? At The Pizza Plant, we’re all about making dairy-free pizzas that are not only better for both you and the planet, but are so tasty, that you won’t even miss the dairy! Shop online for our pre-made, frozen pizzas that are dairy-free, plantbased, and tastier than ever. 

Now, let’s talk about dairy-free pizza!

How Can I Make a Dairy-free Pizza at Home?

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:

1. Dairy-Free Mozarella 

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! Some of our favorites include: Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Mozzarella 

So Delicious Plant-based Mozzarella Style Shreds

2. Dairy-Free Ricotta

Another yummy cheese to throw on pizza is ricotta. 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.

3. Dairy-Free Parmesan 

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!
