Little Caesars


Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsUpdated 2018! 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. As I’ve noted below, their allergen information is a bit disjointed, but we’ve done our best to piece it together. The list below is for the U.S. restaurants, but the offerings and top allergens seem similar across the countries. Nonetheless, I’ve included links to allergen charts in some other countries further down in this post.

Little Caesars- Dairy-Free Menu Items and Allergen Notes

No Dairy (Milk-Based) Ingredients (see disclaimer below)

  • Pizza Crust – Traditional Crust (see Allergen Notes below)
  • Pizza Sauces – Regular Sauce (see Allergen Notes below)
  • Dipping Sauces – Hot-n-Ready Crazy Sauce
  • Meat Toppings – Pepperoni, Bacon, Beef, Italian Sausage, Julienne Cut Ham, Canadian Bacon
  • Vegetable & Fruit Toppings – Green Pepper, Onion, Canned Mushrooms, Fresh Mushrooms, Black Olives, Jalapeno Peppers, Mild Banana Peppers, Pineapple

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’ 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.

I do recommend checking at the restaurant if there is any doubt. I did note errors on the Little Caesars allergen charts, like how “Extra Cheese” wasn’t checked for containing milk. And on the Canadian chart, there are no top allergens noted for the Crazy Bread – including wheat!

  1. 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.
