Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Pizza Fusion Goes Green

No, not that kind of green pizza. Save that for St. Patrick's Day.

Environmentally green.

A press release from the Pizza Fusion chain announces that:

Over the next six months, Pizza Fusion, the leader in environmentally sustainable restaurant practices, will be opening several new locations throughout the south and northeast United States, including Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey; introducing all four states to their first ever LEED certified restaurant establishments. Through several area development and individual franchise deals, entrepreneurs are finding value into bringing Pizza Fusion's sustainable approach to organic food service to their communities.

What's LEED?
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.

LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. All certified projects receive a LEED plaque, which is the nationally recognized symbol demonstrating that a building is environmentally responsible, profitable and a healthy place to live and work.

But it's pizza. Why should we care? Because Pizza Fusion offers:
health conscious alternatives for people with selective diets and food allergies, including gluten-free, vegan and lactose free options.

Those include:

Gluten-Free Pizza
We cater to many customers with Celiac Disease with our gluten-free crust that is not only wheat-free, but also dairy-free. We use a mixture of garbanzo bean, fava bean and rice flour to make our gluten-free pizza crust, and our sauce and cheese are gluten-free as well. Our Celiac friends are always happy to know that they can order almost any topping gluten-free, excluding only barbeque sauce and sausage. Our gluten-free pizza is one of the best on the market. Its great taste is a reflection of our dedication to using quality ingredients and spending the time and energy to perfect our products.

We also serve a variety of salads and melt-in-your-mouth gluten-free brownies to accompany your gluten-free pizza, as well as offer a gluten-free beer made from Sorghum instead of barley. There are many options at Pizza Fusion that fit the special dietary needs of the Celiac community.

Vegan & Vegetarian Options
We proudly offer a truly vegan soy cheese that is casein-free to accompany our wide variety of organic veggie toppings. Our sauce and dough is always Vegan. We make vegetarian wraps and sandwiches, salads, and breadsticks, and we have vegan brownies for dessert that are oh so good!

Lactose-Free Cheese
Our vegan cheese is dairy and casein-free, making it a tasty option for those with lactose intolerance or anyone looking to cut dairy out of their diet. It is soy-based, and we get rave reviews from adults and kids alike on its great taste.
