Q: For several years I have not been able to eat cow’s milk cheese due to the way my skin reacts. However, other cheeses and dairy are OK (i.e., goat cheese, sheep’s milk cheese, etc.). This dietary restriction really isn’t so bad, the only thing I miss dearly is pizza!

I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions for types of non-cow’s milk cheese to use that could offer a similar satisfaction as mozzarella might on pizza? I’m open to any creative suggestions and would love to hear about any experiments you may have tried.

Editor: Good news! Mozzarella isn’t the be-all and end-all when it comes to cheesy pizza toppings. There are other equally satisfying options that don’t involve cow’s milk. I personally love goat cheese on my pizza. Like mozzarella, it’s creamy, but has a great tang that makes it stand out.

Readers, do you have any favorite non-cow’s milk cheese that you love on pizza?
