I loved seeing the article on vegan cheese in WNC [“Pizza, Hold the Dairy,” Nov. 9, Xpress]. I hope more restaurants catch on to this and realize they gain more than vegan business as well.
As a lactose-intolerant person, I am thrilled to have these options available for pizza and for many of the local ice cream shops. When I was younger, eating pizza and/or ice cream was out of the question. Now I can enjoy these things just like anyone else. The fact that the vegan options are usually lower-fat is a bonus.
However, I have gotten some funny looks when I order the mighty meaty pizza with vegan cheese.
