    I dont know, but I eat spinach afredo pizza all the time and it never bothers my IC.. If you dont like spinach you could tell them to add the alfredo sauce and use things you do like.. Like bacon or mushrooms or black olives or just the chesse if cheese does not bother you which mozzerella cheese all these things do not bother my IC Most pizza places have this now.. Hope this helps

        Most pizza places that i have gone to will make the pizza for me without any sauce. I will usually ask them to put beef and peppers on it to and it's yummy! I seem to be having a problem with cheeses though lately and I'm not going to be happy if I have to give that up to now!!


        I'm 47 years old, married 27 years. I have two wonderful boys and two wonderful grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 1994. Life has certainly thrown me many many surprises, all of which I'm trying to stay positive and hopeful, and I try to think about my blessings not my misfortunes, when possible. Stay Strong!

          I have had no problem with Romano. Guess it depends on the person,.... give it a try and you'll soon know if it works for you.

            I make pizza at home with pizza dough or a naan (indian) bread. I put pesto sauce (Armanino, buy it in the freezer section at Safeway) on it, lots of thin sliced mushrooms, red bell pepper, a little broccoli flowerettes here & there, & cover it with mozzarella cheese. Yum!

              I am OK with that brand of frozen Pizza, but it would just depend on you. I am Ok with Parmesan, Romano, Mozerrella, American, and mild Chedder. All other cheeses are out for me personally. With the IC diet it is usually just trial and error to see what you can handle. That is the only brand of frozen white pizza I can find, so I am happy I can eat it! I like to make my own at home too, but some days I just don't have time for the dough to rise!

                I am okay with California Pizza Kitchens white pizza. I think that the amount of Romano is small on it.
