found tofu substitute posted
We bought the Follow your heart mozzarella, montery jack and cheddar today from Whole Foods Market. Price was about $3.69 for an 8 oz block. Not too bad considering my family is currently selling 12 oz blocks of cheese from Amish country for a fundraiser for $5-6.
It tastes almost like the real thing without all the problems It melts great, too.
We 1st tried it at Pizza Fusion and my son was picking it off because he thought it was real cheese.
I am a big tofu fan now that I recently discovered I have IBS. I will test the tofu on pizza and let y'all know. Thanks for listening.

omg that is a great suggestion i will try to make gluten free calzones for my daughter. she was using daiya and it says milk free but she was having tantrums, getting frustrated too easily and being super hyper. i did n't know until tonight that it still has casein and soy which is another no no for her.
Both my kids were casien intolerant as infants, so I had to stick to a strict casien free diet while nursing. I found that making calzones instead of pizza was easier, that way everyone got what they wanted. I did mine with olive oil, veggies, turkey pepperoni, ham, Italian seasoning.....etc. EVeryone else could have cheese and it wasn't a problem. It was delish! I never found a good alternative, even after 2 years. EVERYTHING had casien. I did use hummus in place of sourcream in a lot of recipes and that worked well. I just had to learn to do without the cheese. I did find some soy ice cream that was good and of course sorbet. Cheese was always a problem, though.
