Mellow Mushroom is a popular pizza parlor with locations in various states (see the website below for locations), and a focus on being friendly to special diets. But keep in mind that Mellow Mushroom is a franchise, so it’s possible that some locations may not be as allergy-friendly as others.
That said, Mellow Mushroom provides a fantastic online allergen menu which returns numerous milk-free / dairy-free options for pizza crusts, sauces, toppings and more. Some additional highlights to note:
- They offer dairy-free, allergy-friendly cheese alternative, Daiya to be specific. At some locations it isn’t listed on the menu, but according to one viewer in Germantown, TN, you just have to ask for it.
- They offer a standard gluten-free pizza crust that is noted as free of milk ingredients, too (but at last look, it did contain eggs, so it wasn’t vegan).
- In addition to allergies, they are very vegan-friendly. The Mellow Mushroom recently introduced a “Vegan Favorites” menu that is available nationwide and includes many new items, including an ancient grains gluten-free and vegan pizza crust. Other items on the vegan list include the Mega-Veggie Pizza, Thai Dye Pizza, Gluten-Free Veg Out Pizza, vegan pretzels, hummus, Greek salad, spinach salad, the house calzone and three types of hoagies (with both tofu and tempeh offered as proteins).
Mellow Mushroom was originally recommended to us by Amanda in Wilmington, NC, but we have updated that to include their great new offerings and online allergen menu.
