Update: on our last visit my daughter with celiac was so so so sick afterwards. She clearly was glutened…I can no longer recommend this location.

We have visited twice now since being gluten free. Any of their pizzas can be made with a gluten free crust. The menu says which of their speciality pizzas have toppings that are gluten free as well. We have felt comfortable eating here and like having a gf pizza option. They also have dairy free cheese available.

Great Experience! They have a dedicated GF prep space and dedicated GF oven. They use corn meal to toss dough instead of flour. GF pizza crust is 10". Tried the Buffalo Chicken pizza with blu cheese and it was outstanding. Also tried the meaty pizza which was very good.

Mellow Mushroom is a franchise pizza chain with ~170 restaurants. The one we visited in Virginia Beach is on 33rd street pretty much on the beach. Nice. They have a dedicated gluten free space in the kitchen as well as a separate oven. Staff was knowledgeable. They offer 4 10" pizzas gluten free. Pretty much the 4 options you'd think they'd be. I had the Meaty Mighty with too much meat and it came on a metal plate, which is a handy way to keep pizzas from picking up any flour elsewhere in the kitchen. Pizza crust was OK, but I haven't found any good gf pizza crust yet, and so was the pizza. My wife enjoyed her gluttony bruscetta and pizza. I felt comfortable that they were giving it a serious try, even though it's hard to imagine pizza places ever being perfectly gluten free.

Great gluten free pizza, especially from a chain. They only have a few pizzas that can be made certified gluten free in an area with separate toppings from the non-gf pizzas.

They offer a gluten free crust and many pizzas can be made gluten free. Server was very nice and knowledgeable. They claim that they take precautions to to ensure there is no cross contamination. The pizza was delicious and I felt very comfortable eating there! Overall 10/10 experience and I will be returning!
