Cheese pizza


Can I eat cheese pizza on Ash Wednesday?


If you’re a Latin Rite Catholic, of course. You can even add veg and anchovies if you want. Just no meat products (no sausage, ham or ground beef etc).

Enjoy - in moderation of course.


Thank you :slight_smile:


Just out of curiosity - what made you think that eating cheese pizza was not allowed on a day of abstinence? Thanks for helping me understand.



I wasn’t sure if pizza has meat in it or not. :blush:


Oh, it was more of a cooking question then! It’s only the toppings that would have meat, and if it’s pepperoni, you can pick that off pretty easily. Sausage is a little more difficult! :wink:
