Little Caesars Pizza - Our Favorite Allergy~Friendly Friday Night Dinner

Here is it Friday night and I don't feel like cooking.  Like so many other moms, I am on my way to pick up the kids at the end of a long week.  Finding dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free pizzas is NOT the easiest thing to do!  

 
S.A.F.E. Product Review

What to eat?  Tonight, it's an easy choice for us ! 

Little Caesars Pizza!  

We will pick up two pizzas; one with cheese,  and the second without cheese but with olives and pepperoni.  The sauces and dough at OUR local franchise are dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free!  

Our friend Jonnie, who like us also manages dairy, egg and nut allergies, turned us on to this pizza franchise two years ago.  I know that NOT all Little Caesars are the same, so be sure to speak with your local managers.  As mentioned below, some Little Caesars may use peanut oil on their pizza doughs.  Fortunately, this is NOT the case in the local business we frequent.

Maybe you should check out the one near you!  You maybe be delightfully surprised to be able to add this easy dinner option to your allergy~friendly menu.  

As much I have to cook from scratch, it sure is nice to have a 
night off!  And, the kids LOVE it!!

Thanks, Little Caesars and thanks to my followers who ALWAYS keep me up to date on when a suggestion may NOT be safe for all!

  1. Allergy friendly? What a joke! I suggest you learn a little something.
    Little Ceasars Contains MSG which is only ONE of the
    Reaction-Triggering Neurotoxic Chemicals out there, and of course along with GMO laden cornmeal (Monsanto corn) and GMO corn fed to the animals in turn make the sausage, pepperoni, and cheese from GMO eating cows milk. The list goes on and on!
    I'm sick to my stomach that Prop 37 didn't pass in California.
    The following links should educate you.

    1. Thanks for taking time to stop by and read the post.. Is sounds as though you have enough background in MSGs and GMOs that you could start your own blog~ I bet people would find it very helpful!

    2. Wow, Dem. Dad, Your response seems out of place to the post and the condescending tone unnecessary. Nut, dairy and egg free is quite allergen friendly. There was not a claim that it was msg or corn free. I suppose I could post an angry response that it's not wheat free either? Thank you Daniella. There's so few places my younger brother can eat and it's wonderful to see kids with allergies happily enjoying take-out now and then. :)

    3. Thanks Cosette:-) Your kind words are much appreciated. I know that 'allergy friendly' means so many different things to so many of us. Thank goodness there are so many different niches for those to share their expertise in.

    1. Awesome! Be sure to double check what oil they are using on the dough. I have heard that some places use peanut oil.. something newer in 2015/2016.. our local businesses do not.

  4. I've only recently developed a severe peanut allergy (after many years of tree-nuts and lentil bean allergies) so I'm still learning where I can and can't eat. I am SO glad to find out that LC is a safe place to eat! Thank you for sharing this wonderful news!

    1. Don't forget to check at your local Little Caesars. I'm NOT saying that ALL of them are safe... but the ones near our home, after checking with them, are safe for us.

    1. Amy, I was just reading their allergy info list and it lists soy on many products.. not on their crazy sauce. Double check with the Little Caesars near you.

  6. Little Ceasers is great for my daughter with a severe dairy allergy. They even offered to use a clean cutter to reduce cross contamination.

  7. please update All Franchise can be different and RECENTLY they brush dough with peanut oil in our local store and my daughter got hives stopped eating and when I called they had recently two months been using peanut oil...USED to be our Friday night. Check Papa Murphys for your safety concerns. ALWAYS check again for eating out ingredients as places make changes without telling you. Be safe.

  8. do you know if little ceasers pizza has high fructose corn syrup? I've tried to look everywhere and cant find that info. to look. It stinks that so many places use hfcs when they;re are so many allergies to it but it's still not considered and allergen yet:(:( It would be great if you could locate the ingredients my daughter had some pizza and she's allergic to hfcs and is showing signs of having ingested that :(

    1. I don't know about HFCS. Maybe go and visit the store closest to you or call and speak to the manager. I have found that if you contact businesses during 'off hours' they're willing to help you get more of the answers you need.

  9. Amy, I hope this finds you. I would love to find out from you where you can go to eat. I also can't eat soy protein

    1. Can you eat soy lecithin or oil? Many people who can't have soybean protein can still tolerate the other two. Unfortunately, I have found that many allergists don't share that info with their patients which can make a huge impact on what you can or can't eat. Soy is in everything. My son was allergic to soy for his first two years so I understand the challenges it brings.

    1. Alisha.. remember to check with your individual Little Caesars and make sure their sauces are free of whatever allergens you watch out for.. and make sure they don't use any peanut oils on their doughs! Good luck

  11. I had Little Caesar's pepperoni pizza yesterday and had rash all over my body 1 hour after consuming 4 slices. I realized it as an allergy and decided to eat 2 slices this evening and the same thing happened to me. Now,after reading all these comments i'm wondering what could be in the pizza that I'm allergic to. Yesterday was the first time I had an allergic reaction to food and I'm speechless right now.
