When you have a special diet, it’s hard to find reliable quick eat locations sometimes, especially when you’re not in a big city. When I visit my parents, for example, if I need to pick up something when I’m out and about, my options are limited. Plus, since I started eating more Low FODMAP meals, my choices have dwindled further. Since the beginning of 2020, my priorities for ordering out have been:
- Finding something I can customize from start to finish without feeling like a jerk
- Finding a place that offers gluten-free, dairy-free, and Low FODMAP options
Enter: MOD Pizza, dairy-free, gluten-free awesomeness
One of the few spots I’ve been able to reliably get something quick and tasty has been MOD Pizza. The chain offers pizza that’s ready in a few minutes and is 100% customizable to suit your tastes. They have dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and Low FODMAP options, and are suitable for many different special diets. If I could summarize my MOD Pizza review in a few words: Reliable, speedy, and catered to you.
Why I love MOD Pizza
I love going to MOD Pizza because it’s also somewhere my partner enjoys eating. He usually gets something with sausage, while I pile on all the veggies. If you are looking to get something from MOD Pizza that is Low FODMAP, depending on how sensitive you are and what foods you’re avoiding, you’ll still have quite a few options.
My usual MOD Pizza dairy-free order
For example, I opt for ingredients like basil, arugula, rosemary, sliced tomatoes, broccoli, red bell peppers, and soy cheese. I ask for no pizza sauce and instead get olive oil, adding more flavor with herbs and tomatoes and avoiding garlic and onion. All of the ingredients for toppings are available on MOD pizza’s website, so you can check them out before going and make choices that suit your diet. I love being able to go somewhere and ask for what I need without feeling high-maintenance or picky. I highly recommend checking out the allergen information before showing up.
For the past year, I’ve been eating mostly gluten-free, which I’ve noticed has had a positive effect on my chronic pain symptoms. I was always hesitant to order a gluten-free pizza crust because I thought they all tasted terrible. I actually love MOD Pizza’s gluten-friendly crust and would choose it over the regular crust. They also have a cauliflower crust, but it does contain milk and egg, so it isn’t suitable for people who are dairy-free or vegan.
TL;DR: Check out MOD Pizza
In short, if you’re looking for a pizza place that will cater to various needs in a group, MOD Pizza is a great place to go. They also have salads for people who are trying to avoid pizza altogether (although, I don’t generally want to do that at a pizza restaurant).
