Pizza Hut – Cheeseless in the US, Dairy-Free & Cheesy in the UK

12

Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsUpdated 2020! Pizza Hut has thousands of locations worldwide. They haven’t added dairy-free cheese alternative to their U.S. menu yet, but they do have it in the U.K. In fact, the British have a whole vegan menu!

But to ensure a dairy-free pie anywhere, order your pizza without cheese and then pick from the plethora of dairy-free crust, sauce, and topping options below. Many Pizza Hut locations also have a WingStreet within, so we’ve included those options, too. These lists are for the United States, but we’ve also included links near the bottom of this post to the allergen charts for Canada and the United Kingdom. And the UK is a bit more progressive with their options – they now offer vegan cheesecake!

I haven’t had the chance to try the dairy-free cheese pizzas in the UK, but in the US, we’ve ordered cheeseless pizzas from Pizza Hut and they are always so well done. The staff always verifies my order when taking it and when they give us the pizza, and they load it up with other toppings (like tons of them) so that we aren’t slighted in any way. They typically ask us if it is for an allergy, too.

    I need to know if you used lactose free cheeses as I’m gluten and lactose intolerant. I can’t eat out at any other fast food places.

  2. what about lactose free cheese why do none of the pizza places (pizza hut/dominos) do this?
    I mean whats the point of having a dairy free base if the main topping isn’t? Pizza without cheese is not pizza?!

  3. I am confused about the stuffed crust. It’s a hand tossed dough that’s outer ring of crust is stuffed with string cheese.

  4. I called Pizza Hut and checked their website to make sure certain things were dairy free and even though it used to say the hand tossed is dairy free dough they are incorrect on the website. When I spoke with someone at the store they said that the pan and handtossed are the same dough. On Pizza Hut.com website it says pan has milk in it, so basically the website and what you guys are saying about handtossed (from what an employee told me) aren’t correct. To be sure I would ask restaurant again before ordering and eating. I know I have to since I am very much allergic to milk and milk by products. Now I order cheese less thin crust to be sure there is no milk.

    I need milk free pizza for a birthday party. Are they really milk and cheese free. How long does it take to order and does all Pizza Huts do this.
