You might assume you can make Cheese in LEGO Fortnite, but there's actually only one surefire way to get the beloved dairy food item. By using this trusty guide of mine, you'll know exactly what to do to get Cheese in the game and what to use it for.

How to get Cheese 

Instead of being able to make it like other food items, the only way to get Cheese in LEGO Fortnite is to find it in Chests - which are littered all across the map throughout the game. 

If you were hoping for a specific location to visit, unfortunately, the loot in each Chest is random, so finding Cheese is all down to luck. Having said that, I've found Cheese to be a fairly common item, so you should be able to find some if you find and open enough Chests.

What is Cheese used for in LEGO Fortnite?

Cheese can be consumed like other edibles to restore both five Hunger points and six Hearts, but its main use is for crafting Pizza. This is one of the top meals in the game thanks to its high restorative properties: 25 Hearts, 20 Hunger & five temporary Hearts. This makes it great for when you're in a pinch. 

You'll also need two lots of Flour, three Spicy Peppers, and one batch of Meat to craft the dish altogether, but knowing how to get Cheese will remove a lot of the guesswork required for this recipe.
