    It'll be fine. You just can't have unpasteurised soft cheese or cheese with the mouldy bits in etc x

    Yes just make sure they don't add the Gran Milano or any goats cheese and you will be fine. I went a few months ago and just made sure that when I was there I asked for the mozzarella only to put on.

    As far as I have read and know its ok so long as its no a blue or mouldy cheese and anyhow pizza cheese barely qualifies as a cheese so you will be fine unless your hormones have decided you don't like cheese any more! LOL

    I think you can have any cheese as long as it's cooked. So you couldn't have Stilton but you could have broccoli and Stilton soup... I ate loads of goats cheese when I was pregnant - I just ate it cooked (goats cheese on pizza is lush!)

    I think it also depends on the process it was made not just if its cooked.

    Unpastuerised shouldnt be eaten even if cooked.

    The NHS advice is that soft cheese is fine if cooked throughly & most soft cheeses are made with unpasteurised milk, so I think as long as you trust the cooking process (doing it yourself is a good idea) even most unpasteurised cheeses are fine cooked - listeria is very sensitive to heat I believe.
