Last Update in January 2022! Uno Pizzeria & Grill has been top rated by our friends at Allergy Eats for years, and for good reason. They offer not only allergen information, but also detailed ingredients on their website in the Nutrition information and on request. Customers frequently report their well-trained management of allergen orders, too. And believe it or not, they have dairy-free and vegan pizzas, right on the menu! We first reported on Uno’s over a decade ago, but now we’re giving this post a big update with all current options.
Dairy-Free Menu Guide to Uno Pizzeria & Grill
Uno Pizzeria & Grill actually has quite a few dairy-free menu items, plus some customizable options. Below is a quick guide to the options at our time of review. As noted below, this is just a guide to get you started. Speak with your server, relay your dietary concerns, and decide what is currently safe for your needs.
- Grilled Shrimp With Orange Cilantro Dipping Sauce
- Guacamole Chips & Dip (also vegan; select locations)
Special Order: The Wings and Boneless Bites themselves are made without dairy. Order without the ranch or blue cheese dip, and ask your server what dairy-free sauce options are currently available.
Ask about the Soup of the Day. Their main menu options contain dairy.
Note: The French Onion soup does contain dairy in the soup base, so it is not dairy free, even without the cheese.
- Gluten Sensitive Garden Starter Salad (also vegan)
- Berry Salad (no goat cheese)
- Chopped Honey Crisp Chicken Salad (no cheese)
- Chopped Honey Grilled Chicken Salad (no cheese)
- Italian Chopped Salad (no cheese, no pepperoni – see note below)
Dairy-Free Dressing Options: Balsamic Vinaigrette (vegan), Honey Mustard, Low Fat Honey Vinaigrette, Low Fat Vinaigrette (vegan).
Heads Up! The croutons at Uno Pizzeria do contain dairy. The Pepperoni contains lactic acid starter culture, which can be dairy. We are inquiring with the company, but in the mean time, check with the server.
- Vegan Garden Pizza (it’s cheeseless)
- Vegan Cheese Pizza (comes with Daiya cheese alternative)
- Vegan Cheeseburger Deep Dish Pizza (comes with Daiya cheese alternative and Beyond Beef)
Dairy-Free Pizza Crusts: Classic Pizza Dough (for Deep Dish and Thin Crust)
Dairy-Free Pizza Sauces: House Tomato Sauce, Uno’s BBQ Sauce
Dairy-Free Meat Toppings: Anchovies, Bacon, Chicken, Honey Ham, Hamburger, Sausage (plain, not Italian)
Dairy-Free Vegetable Toppings: Banana Peppers, Black Olives, Broccoli, Eggplant, Green Peppers, Jalapenos, Mushrooms, Onions, Pineapple, Red Onion, Roasted Vegetables, Spinach, Summer Squash, Tomatoes, Zucchini Squash
Heads Up! The Cauliflower Pizza Crust, Gluten Sensitive Pizza Crust, Alfredo Sauce, Basil Pesto Sauce, Sweet Red Chili Sauce, Italian Sausage, and Meatballs contain milk. The Pepperoni contains lactic acid starter culture, which can be dairy. We are inquiring with the company, but in the mean time, check with the server. The Nashville Hot Sauce might also be dairy-free – we are inquiring on the natural flavors.
Heads Up! All of their pastas contain milk, but you can build your own pasta with their Marinara / House Tomato Sauce and dairy-free meats and vegetables. See the pizza toppings above for options.
- Grilled Shrimp & Sirloin
- Top Sirloin Steak
- Baked Haddock
- Lemon Basil Salmon
- Fish & Chips
- Chicken Tenders with French Fries
- Lemon Herb Chicken Skewers
Heads Up! The Sirloin Beef Tips are cooked with a couple types of dairy. The Mediterranean Chicken is accidentally listed by Uno Pizzeria as not containing milk – that dish actually contains a lot of dairy. The new Tuscan Chimichurri Cap Steak might be a dairy-free option, but we are still waiting to hear back from the company. Uno Pizzeria uses a “phase” for cooking, which is dairy-free butter alternative.
Burgers & Sandwiches
- Uno Burger
- Uno Gluten Sensitive Burger (comes on an Udi’s Bun)
- Beyond Burger (also vegan)
- BBQ Bacon Chicken Sandwich (no cheese)
- Fish Sandwich (select locations)
Dairy-Free Buns: Potato Bun, Gluten-Free Bun (Udi’s), Ciabatta Bread
- French Fries (also vegan)
- Roasted Seasonal Vegetables (also vegan)
- Steamed Broccoli (also vegan)
- Sweet Potato Fries (also vegan)
Heads Up! Their House Made Bread contains dairy. The “phase” that they use as a butter alternative is dairy-free, but contains soy oil.
- Chicken Tenders
Sorry, at the time of review, all desserts at Uno Pizzeria contain dairy!
