I need your help. I am having friend's over for dinner tomorrow night and then we will have a game night. My problem is this;
I was planning on having pizza, veggies, and Christmas goodies. Now I realize that one guest cannot have tomatoes or cheese. Should I just serve something else and not pizza, or should I have the pizza and something else? Would a white pizza be good without cheese? I have never made a white pizza before. Any ideas for me? Thanks in advance.

Make a good hearty soup to go alongside. It will look like you planned it that way.

We love this one: German Potato Soup. It also has kielbasa in it, so it's nice and filling.

In my experience, people with specific needs generally accept whatever is in second place. I would create something as a side dish that would accommodate their needs without changing your menu. Or you could rethink the whole menu.

I like the German Potato Soup idea.

I like the soup idea and GG's idea sounds good.

This would also be good to keep the Italian theme however. I love this soup.....and spinach can be used instead of kale, and I'd never use "fake bacon". What a crime. lol

Make two pizzas one with tomatoes and cheese and one without. I am going to make pizza tomorrow with clams, onion& mushrooms. Just brush the rolled out dough with olive oil sprinkel with oragano and add toppings. You can use any type of fish,shrimp,crab, anything you can make a sandwich with, you can make a pizza!

Just another thought, coat the crust with BBQ sauce add sliced steak with mushrooms , onions. If someone wants cheese add it to the hot pizza.

BBQ sauce has tomatoes in it. I know because I was allergic to tomatoes and there were so many things I couldn't have.

I like the soup idea alot.

Another idea is to make foccacia on pizza dough (I use red and white onion in slices, olives, etc.). Just roll the dough out (even on your pizza pan) and brush with olive oil, top with the toppings and bake like pizza. You could have it and a pizza, it and soup or all three. Whatever suits your time.

You could follow the pizza theme by making a calzone out of some of the dough using Italian coldcuts and roasted red peppers and olives. No cheese, no tomato.
