I Will Never Take Pizza For Granted Again

I have cooked pizza in recent years, despite my tomato allergy. You can see that post about my pizza with pepper sauce here

However, before I developed my tomato allergy right after graduating from college in 2017, I often found pizza just okay. I wasn’t passionate about eating it. 

Oftentimes, I ate it because it was the only thing available. If it weren’t, then I would try to find or eat something else, like pasta. 

But since I became allergic to tomatoes, I could no longer consume regular pizza. I can still eat white pizza, though, since it doesn’t have tomatoes. 

The good news is that I am working on reversing my tomato allergy and rebuilding my tolerance toward it. So far, it has gone well. 

I do this by mixing a cup of water and 1/2 a teaspoon of ketchup, and then sipping it from a spoon. Every few days, I decrease the amount of water with the same measurement of ketchup. Hopefully, I can eat tomato products by this summer 2021. 

Which brings me back to the point of this post. I will appreciate pizza more than ever. 

If I lose my allergy toward tomatoes, I will have to be careful not to overeat pizza.

Now, onto how I will prepare my pizza if I reverse my tomato allergy.

1: I will make a premade brand, frozen or fresh 

I used to love Red Baron pizza since I enjoy the flavor of pepper in tomato sauce.

I also loved the pizza from Costco. It is a crust with tomato sauce and raw cheese, but is fresh and not frozen.

2: I may use vegetables instead of cheese sometimes 

When I was younger, I would remove the cheese from my pizza slices since I didn’t enjoy it. 

I probably will still do that if I eat regular pizza soon, despite developing a taste for cooked cheese.

So, in that case, if I make a homemade pizza for myself, I may use veggies instead of cheese. It is also healthier.

There you have it.
