Little Caesars – Hail to the Cheeseless Dairy-Free Pizza

2

Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsUpdated 2021! Little Caesars is one of the largest pizza chains in the United States, and they have franchises in Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. The list below is for the U.S. Little Caesars restaurants, with some added notes for Canada. The offerings and top allergens are similar across the countries, but there are a few differences. So be sure to check the allergen charts in your local area. I’ve included links to allergen charts in some other countries further down in this post.

Little Caesars Pizza Dairy-Free Menu Guide, Allergen Notes, and Info for different Countries

  • Pizza Crust (see Allergen Notes below) – Traditional Crust
  • Pizza Sauces (see Allergen Notes below) – Regular Sauce

  • Protein Toppings Pepperoni, Bacon, Seasoned Beef, Italian Sausage, Smoky Ham, Plant-Based Pepperoni

  • Wings (US Only; see Allergen Notes) – Oven Roasted, Buffalo, BBQ
  • Dessert – Cinnamon Bites (select countries), Cookies (in sealed package; the company had confirmed these are dairy-free, but a reader said they now contain milk. We are looking into this, but as always, read the package and inquire when ording!)

Other Allergen Notes

  • The pizza crusts and sauce are not broken out on the Little Caesars allergen chart. But when I inquired, they sent me this information:

Little Caesars’ [traditional]pizza crust is made with a quality, high-protein flour and contains no animal products or by-products. The sauce is made from crushed tomatoes and is seasoned with a special blend of herbs and spices – it also is made without animal by-products. This means that customers who are strict vegetarians [vegans]can order a Little Caesars vegetable pizza, without cheese, and still fulfill their needs.

  • But please note that they do have crusts that contain dairy, like the Stuffed Crust and Cheeser Cheeser Crust.
  • Little Caesars does not have dairy-free cheese alternative.
  • In Canada they use Veggie Seasoning, which contains milk. Ask about it before ordering your toppings.  Also, all of the Wings at Canadian Little Caesars contain milk. But they do have some additional dairy-free toppings, including Julienne Ham, Chicken, Anchovies, Red Onions, Green Olives, and Oregano.

You offer field roast pepperoni, but no dairy free cheese. It’s very frustrating given you will offer a meat alternative to people that don’t eat meat more or less a vegetarian because vegans do not eat cheese. I on the other have a Casein allergy which is in dairy it’s not lactose so I guess that people like me will still steer clear of Little Caesars 🤷🏻‍♀️

Our local store is great about making pizza for my son. Although today we ordered a deep dish cheese less pizza. I called to ask if their deep dish was any different from the traditional. They told me nothing in their was “vegan”. Now I am concerned. Any advice??

Hi Susan, the information above was accurate as of the time of update, earlier this year. But I’m checking to see if there have been any changes, or if the Deep Deep Dish Pizza uses a different crust that does contain dairy.

It is not – that’s why it’s not on our list. Reportedly, if you order it without Parmesan, it is dairy-free, but check in store.

  1. What a great article! I had just looked up Little Caesars allergen info as we are having a bday party for my daughter who cant have any dairy. We normally order from another pizza place for her without cheese but wanted to inquire about this place since it’s very easy to get and inexpensive. I couldnt find an appropriate allergen list, came across this and it is SO helpful! Thank you so much!!

  2. I have a high fructose corn syrup allergy. It unfortunately causes me to have seizures. Other products are removing this ingredient from their baked goods. Little Caesar’s should follow suit.
