Pizza is definitely one of those foods that everyone loves, and I’m no exception. However, finding pizza that is both gluten and dairy free can be difficult. You tend to find gluten free pizzas but with normal cheese or vegan pizzas with a gluten filled base, which is a pain for people like me, that are both gluten and dairy free. Over the last couple of years, I have been hunting down all of the best gluten and dairy free pizza options and I now have a fantastic list of choices. It also helps that supermarkets and restaurants have recently stepped up their game when it comes to providing freefrom food which is amazing! Here are my top gluten and dairy free pizza options including both shop and restaurant brought choices.
Possibly my all time favourite pizza option, Zizzi’s offers a detailed allergen menu including a page of gluten free, non dairy and vegan options. The majority of the pizzas on the normal menu can be made on a gluten free base with vegan cheese and they all taste amazing! They also stick ‘Non Gluten’ and ‘Non Dairy’ stickers on the plate which is perfect and stops any anxiety you may have in case they have given you the wrong one! The below pizza is topped with chicken, mushrooms and spinach.
Pizza Express have only just started offering vegan cheese so I only recently visited, but was very impressed. They don’t have a special gluten free menu but the normal menu states that ‘any pizza can be made with a gluten free base’ and to ‘make sure to inform your waiter if the pizza doesn’t come out on a black board’ as this is how they serve all of their gluten free options. I went for a vegan pizza with artichokes, black olives, onions, mushrooms and topped with vegan cheese. I was also very impressed with the texture of the base and would definitely return.
The stable offers a range of gluten free pizza options along with a vegan menu. I normally pick a pizza from the vegan menu and ask for a gluten free base. The menu states that the gluten free dough is specially made on site and to inform your waiter of any allergens and intolerances prior to arrival. The pizza below is a spicy vegan option with peppers, chilli, onion, basil, mushrooms and vegan mozzarella.
The White Rabbit pizza company
If you haven’t heard of the White Rabbit Pizza company, then you are missing out! They are a UK based gluten free pizza brand that have recently released a Smokin’ Vegan option which I was lucky enough to win in a competition over on Instagram! The pizza’s are absolutely delicious and can be brought in Sainsburys. I have always missed out when my boyfriend buys a supermarket pizza for dinner, but I now also have a quick and easy option which is perfect!
Nibsy’s gluten free cafe – Reading
Nibsy’s is an entirely gluten free cafe in Reading town centre which specialises in gluten free cakes, and also sells a range of sandwiches, pasta, pastry dishes and also pizza! They have recently perfected their gluten free pizza dough and this can be brought for lunch with a vegan cheese topping. If you live around the area or ever get chance to visit, I would definitely recommend popping in! The below pizza is topped with mushrooms, vegan cheese, salad and dairy free potato salad.

Deliciously Alchemy gluten free white bread mix!
I was recently very kindly sent some products from Deliciously Alchemy, which is a gluten free brand that specialises in cake and bread mixes. For a full review please click here. I used the gluten free white bread mix to make pizza dough by adding water and olive oil and it worked perfectly! I topped the pizza with dairy free violife cheese and pepperoni. A perfect at home gluten and dairy free pizza option!
