Mellow Mushroom is a popular pizza parlor with locations across the United States, and a focus on catering 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.
Nonetheless, Mellow Mushroom provides a fantastic online allergen menu. It returns numerous milk-free / dairy-free options for pizza crusts, sauces, toppings, and more. Some highlights worth noting include the following:
- They offer a dairy-free, allergy-friendly cheese alternative; Daiya to be specific (Update: I’ve heard that they now use Follow Your Heart!). 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 also made without milk ingredients. But at last look, it did contain eggs, so it wasn’t vegan.
- In addition to being allergy-friendly, they are very vegan-friendly. The Mellow Mushroom recently introduced a “Vegan Favorites” menu. It is available nationwide and includes many new items, like 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. However, we have updated this post to include their new offerings and online allergen menu.
