Boston Pizza (also BP or Boston’s)

Updated 2017! Boston Pizza is a Canadian-based restaurant chain that owns and franchises locations in Canada, the United States and Mexico. According to Go Dairy Free viewer Lindsay, “I work for Boston Pizza and though we do not post our allergy guide online, every store has a comprehensive book on site. If you call ahead I am sure an employee could look through it for you.”

We did manage for find an allergen chart online for Boston Pizza, but it is dated 2012. Their menu has changed a fair bit since then. And it doesn’t note specifics, like if any of their pizza sauces and crusts are dairy free. So we aren’t sure if cheese-free pizza is a good option for dairy-free and vegan diners. We have put in an inquiry to get more information, but until then, the list below is what we can offer.

Other Allergen Notes: Again, the above information is based on 2012. We have edited out any menu items no longer available, and are hoping to receive current information. Also, Boston Pizza has a GlutenWise menu that includes gluten-free sandwiches, pizza, and pasta. But we were told the following, “All of our GlutenWise items are prepared with gluten-free ingredients.  However, due to the open nature of our kitchens, where gluten is present, and the hand-made preparation of our recipes, cross contamination can occur.”

    • Thx. We are travelling soon and might have to eat out a few times so I’m happy to hear this. And that they have an allergy book.

  3. I recently went to Boston Pizza (I live in Canada) I have a sever allergy to milk. When I went in there they were very attentive and helpful they let me use their allergy guide they have out back. I was very surprised to learn their Prime Rib Burger had absolutely no milk, along with their ribs, bolognas sauce, and noodles. Allot of their sauces were dairy free as well. It was a nice change to go somewhere and go home and not be sick for four days.
