They have a choice of 4 pizzas that they say are up to certified GF standards. I ordered the veggie pizza and it was great. I will go back.

Mellow mushroom consistently delivers with gluten free pizza. This location didn’t disappoint. The person taking the order said which pizzas we could safely get and they make them separately. Celiacs have not had any issue with mellow mushroom. Note that the gluten free pizza is very thin crust and different from the normal crust they serve.

They have a few pizzas which are made with certified gluten free procedures. Not too many options though.

Used to eat here a lot, but it's gone downhill. Stingy toppings and terrible crust. Also way overpriced.

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!
