Diagnosed with a cow’s milk allergy more than 20 years ago, I have had plenty of time to get accustomed to eating my pizza without cheese. Before you feel too sorry for me, think of it like bread sticks with toppings, dipped in marinara sauce (not too bad). More recently, I have started using dairy-free cheese when I make pizza at home, but I still have to go cheese-less when I order out or have pizza delivered. UNTIL I found Skinny Pizza in Addison! They offer 2 dairy-free/vegan cheese options (mozzarella and cheddar)!!! They also offer a gluten-free crust and, if you’re vegetarian or vegan, you’ll find plenty of options here too.
My daughter and I recently visited Skinny Pizza in Addison when she was home for a visit from college. I ordered a create your own pizza with their original skinny crust, marinara sauce, vegan mozzarella cheese, topped with pepperoni, pineapple, broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes (don’t judge – lol!).
My daughter is lactose intolerant and also has issues with gluten, so she was equally excited to try their pizza. Hoping their gluten-free crust wouldn’t taste “like cardboard,” like many she has tried, she eagerly awaited as her pizza baked in their fiery oven. She also ordered a create your own, with their gluten-free crust, vegan mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, spinach and turkey bacon.
The verdict? She loved it! And the crust most definitely did not taste like cardboard.
Even if you don’t need or care about dairy-free and/or gluten-free pizza, you’ll enjoy all the other ways Skinny Pizza makes pizza and healthy eating co-exist. They offer a long list of vegetable toppings, their New York style crust is thin/lower carb plus made with no preservatives or additives, and their sauce is made with organic tomatoes. I love soda with my pizza and was happy to also see that they only serve soda made with real cane sugar. I tried the root beer – YUM! My daughter had the bottled lemonade you see pictured above. Next time, I think I’ll try a glass of wine with my pizza (yes, they serve beer and wine too).
Not in the mood for pizza? You’ll find organic and gluten-free pasta options, salads and organic soups on their menu too. I haven’t tried any of them yet, but they have dairy-free soups I plan to test out next time I stop in during this cold Texas winter.
So far, the Addison location is the only Skinny Pizza in Texas. It’s worth the drive, in my opinion, if you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
