Updated March 2022! MOD Pizza was one of the first build-your-own pizza or salad chains to take off, and they’ve always been quite friendly to allergic diners. They offer dairy-free cheese, that’s stored separately at the locations we’ve seen, and the staff is trained to follow allergen protocols with special diet orders. And the options are expansive. As you can see in the dairy-free menu below, there are crust, sauce, and topping options for all.

What Others Are Saying ...
As soon as I told them that I had a dairy allergy, they changed their gloves and took extra care to avoid anything with dairy in it. You pay for the crust and all the toppings are free, which you can’t beat! After eating frozen pizza since discovering my allergy, this oven pizza was da‘ bomb!!!
Delicious & Affordable!
Love the build your own pizza style and that they even let you customize two halves if your splitting it. We tried the fig balsamic glaze, too, which wasn’t extra and was sweet, but good. I recommend going light on the dairy-free cheese. It can easily overwhelm the pizza if you get too much. Also, the staff changed their gloves before handling our order and got the cheese alternative from a tub that was put away from the other toppings – which was great!
