I have a wheat intolerance, and apparently I cross react with casein dairy protein in cheese. I didn't realize until today that there are cheese made from whey, thus avoiding the casein. My question is which whey cheeses can be melted and used to make pizza? Some whey cheese I know about:
If anyone has experience with this I would appreciate hearing how well these work for pizza.
I would be using rice/tapioca/potato starch flours for the crust.

We made a very nice pizza with grated cauliflower mixed up with egg to make the base, I'm sure you could find the recipe on google. Don't know about the whey cheeses though, try it and let us know how it goes!
Matt 11, the best known "disease" associated with wheat intolerance is celiac disease. This is an auto immune reaction to a specific gliadin peptide sequence in a wheat protein. The problem is that there are many other peptide sequences that cause people similar types of auto immune reactions, and those peptide-initiated disease sequences don't all have names. So they get grouped together as a class of auto-immune reactions known as "wheat intolerance".
In terms of specific diagnostic tests for such conditions, consider Cyrex Labs Array #3, which is a multi peptide test. Array #3 tests up to 10 peptides, not just the traditional gliadin peptide. It therefore is helpful to find patients with wheat sensitivity that are not celiac disease.
Does that answer your question what "wheat intolerance" means?
Now, back to pizza. :) Assuming you can tolerate the carb load, there are many good pizza crust recipes. A great commercial one is made by Pamela's Gluten-Free products, and I think it uses rice flour, tapioca flour, and potato starch.
As for cheese, I'm simply trying to find a whey based substitute for traditional casein cheeses. So this isn't avoiding cheese.
Wheat intolerance, eh? (Wonders what that means.)
Back to pizza… what's the point of having pizza if you can't eat wheat or cheese. How about you find another food to eat? (A non-answer, but you can only make so many substitutions in food before you bastardize it to an unrecognisable mess.)
Some of other Whey cheese you can try are:
1. Corsican Brocciu
2. Romanian Urda
3. Greek Mizithra
4. Norwegian Geitost
The above given are only the examples of whey cheeses and can be used along with rice, potatoes etc
Not sure about the melting part, but if you've got casein issues, you're better off switching to a different beast instead of cow than trying to switch to whey based cheeses. There may be just enough casein left in those whey based cheeses to set you off.
I have the same issue and I do just fine with buffalo mozzarella. Luckily the Costco near me carries this stuff.
