Dedicated kitchen for gluten free. They certify 5 pizzas. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Must state you have celiac or wheat allergy and you need allergy prep. Different chef in completely different kitchen and oven will prepare. Menu states clearly which ingredients are safe. We ordered celiac sons for allergy prep and mine with gluten free crust. The kitchen manager came out to verify that this was how I intended it he did not want anyone sick. My husband ordered gluten free but chose jalapenos which caused chef to come out again to make sure we knew that ingredient wasn't from a certified source. Felt very safe. Pizza was delicious!
They have a separate station for preparing GF pizzas. Pizzas are tasty!
(Review from a local) Best celiac experience we’ve had at a restaurant ever! They are as good as some Disney restaurants when it comes to allergies!! They have a separate prep space and allergy oven. They use corn masa to roll their regular pizzas instead of flour so airborne gluten isnt too much of an issue. We were able to speak directly with the manager and he made the pizzas himself to ensure no cross contamination and myself and my celiac son felt great after. Also, they carry glutenberg beers for those that like to enjoy a certified gluten free beer with their pizza.
Waiter was very good about letting us know which food was "no gluten ingredients" and which were properly gluten free. Annoyingly GF on menu is not the marking for "free of any gluten". GF pizza was very good and would happily go back.
The pizza was sooo good and the staff was extremely knowledgeable on allergens. I ordered the gluten free pizza with pesto and follow your heart vegan cheese since I have a milk allergy as well. The waitress came out a few minutes later and told me that the pesto had cheese in it so I was able to order something else. I had a great experience plus they have a Rubik’s cube sign on the wall so that is definitely worth checking out!
They clearly take gluten allergies very seriously because they shut down the line and clean it to cook the pizzas separately. They even keep certain ingredients in a separate fridge which is why certain GF ingredients are not labeled as such - because they’re in a fridge with non GF items. I thought that was pretty cool. The one drawback is the time you have to wait for your order, but not getting sick is worth it. Just be prepared to wait and if you’re eating with non GF people just go ahead and let them eat first.
menu is confusing, no GF appetizers, first thing they try to do is give you booze, been there twice with no GF dough available. Could not get order right, after waitress explained menu and we made choices we still got wrong pizzas.
Its expensive for a gluten free pizza...I have Celiac and react strongly when glutened. I never get a reaction, but be careful cause they use paper straws in their drinks and I don't know if they have gluten in them or not as the paste or body of the straw. They are kinda rude whenever asked questions. I just don't use the straws.
We ordered for pick up. They did gluten free really well, and the pizza was pretty good. We had the mighty meat - toppings were delicious. The crust was a little soft, but that is unfortunately common with gluten free. Regardless, it was good and safe, and we'd eat there again.
We had the mighty meat and enjoyed it! Staff were quick to answer all of our questions about gf safety and we felt very comfortable eating here. Our only complaint was the middle of the pizza had crust that was a bit soft but otherwise, for us, the taste was great. Would recommend to others for sure!
Not only do they have gluten-free pizza, their toppings are listed as gluten-free or not in the normal menu. Also, they gave me the best pizza ever!
Sensitive Celiac here and I eat at this Mellow Mushroom probably once a month. I’ve not had issues here. I find that they take their procedures seriously and have had good luck here! We usually get the Cosmic Karma or Veggie Lovers GF pizzas 👍
The GF pizza used to be a decent size but, unfortunately, they changed it so now the only option is a very small kid-sized pizza. Not at all worth the price, considering it would take two to actually fill me up and I’m a small person!
DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS LOCATION!!! Ordered a plain gluten free cheese pizza through doordash and it looked very much like a regular gluten full pizza but I double and triple checked my receipt and it said the order was gluten free. After eating a piece and having another person taste a regular pizza and mine from this place I called the restaurant and checked to see. They said it was supposed to be a thin crust typical of other restaurants (which it was definitely not). After five minutes on hold to speak with the manager the same lady came back on the phone saying that he was “too busy” and that they could remake it but I would have to go to the store to pick it up and that they couldn’t give me a refund and would have to call doordash to be refunded for their mistake. Definitely will not be ordering again! How can you mess up a clearly labeled gluten free order!!!
Celiac friendly! Pizza prepared and made in a separate location. Servers very knowledgeable and helpful. Gluten pizza tastes great too. Such a relief to eat at a restaurant and not be worried about cross contamination.
Mellow mushroom is always a good, safe chain to go to because they prepare their gluten free pizzas in a separate area (away from all the horrible gluten). The staff always brings the gluten free pizza out separate from the gluten ones to insure no contamination, which I appreciate. Never gotten sick!
The back of their menu has about 2 paragraphs on how the staff is trained in cross contamination and how they prevent that in the cooking process. They were so awesome and great to talk with. They even mark each pizza topping on whether it’s GF or not! They also if your lactose intolerant has AMAZING vegan cheese. It was awesome. Idk if some of the reviews here are older calling it not celiac friendly but I can tell you right now it is.
Got glutened. Yes, pizza places are always risky for celiacs, but given how many other Mellow Mushrooms we’ve eaten at, with no problem, the chain clearly has a system to keep GF pizzas as segregated as possible, and this location is not following it.
Had great service from our server Wed afternoon and he was diligent in explaining the process for the GF pizza. My daughter has Celiac and we explained that she’s extremely sensitive. My daughter asked for bacon on her pizza and our server went back to verify it was separate and gluten free. She enjoyed the pizza and had zero reactions!
First timers from CT... wanted to try this because my wife needs gluten free and she wanted pizza. As a side note for celiacs my wife is extremely sensitive. This place does have a lot of GF options. First, parking here is a complete nightmare. You may have to pay to park next lot over. Or, if you’re lucky you can find a spot on the street just a short walk away. When we walked in we were greeted and seated by a hostess with virtually zero personality. Waitress was nice though and IMO was knowledgeable about GF related questions and concerns. Food came out pretty quickly. My wife’s GF pizza was not prepared as ordered, they left off one topping. She liked the toppings otherwise. GF Pizza crust itself tasted pretty gross to be brutally honest. It was very bland. I actually apologized to my wife for having to suffer through it... The good part for her is at least she had no adverse reaction, so that was good. I got a regular pizza with three toppings. My gluten filled pizza was pretty good. I liked the crust, it was both crispy and chewy. So, for regular pizza, this is a good choice. If you require gluten free pizza, I’d say go somewhere else, yuk!
They use pre-made GF dough. It’s a thin crust. The toppings are flavorful enough to help you forget the great homemade crust you are missing out on. $2 more for GF. You’ll need a whole one by yourself.
This Mellow is unlike any other I have ever visited. Instead of being seated at a table, you walk up to a counter and order. They do not have a specific GF menu here like they do at other Mellows. Luckily, I am familiar enough with the menu that I knew what to order. I also had an exceptional employee come out of the kitchen to double check my order and let me know he was handling my GF pizza away from the other food. I had a great meal and did not get sick. I am sure this employee isn’t always there. However, this only gets three stars because the place was jammed (which increases room for error) and if you aren’t familiar with their GF options, you may accidentally order a topping or something unsafe because they don’t have a clear GF menu like other Mellow Mushrooms.
Best GF pizza I've ever had. They were very aware, have a designated cooking area, & change their gloves. I have celiac & I am extremely sensitive to cross contamination. I did not get sick &I got to enjoy an amazing pizza! The staff was also very friendly & it's a very fun atmosphere !
We always enjoy Mellow Mushroom. We went early, before 6, on a Wednesday and got right in, but was super crowded by the time we left.
