This is one of the only places in the area that we know of where you can get chicken wings that are baked and not put in a fryer. They are delicious! We really enjoy the gf pizzas as well. Everyone has always seemed knowledgeable about food restrictions and taken the necessary precautions when putting in our order. We’ve had nothing but positive experiences here.

This place takes food allergies seriously. They have 4 small pizzas that are certified GF. Separate prep area (different part of the kitchen), GF protocols, and separate oven. Best GF pizza crust I’ve tasted!

Can order any of their speciality pizzas on a 10” gluten-free crust. So delicious and honestly couldn’t even tell the crust was gluten-free (aside from the fact that it was thinner than my boyfriend’s regular pizza crust). They also have a gluten-free brownie on the menu!

There are two locations in Pigeon Forge. One is at the Island shopping area and does not have direct access for parking. We went to the location on Parkway instead. Wait time was decent and expected since busy place. Pizza was great! They even have “Certified GF” marked at top about gluten, which is pretty rare for pizza places. Usually most places say cannot guarantee cross contamination and certainly never say certified. Was immediately relaxing to see this and they listed 4 signature CGF pizzas that could be made along with other GF ingredients. When mentioned gluten free, the server instantly said “I got you”, which means a ton to celiac families. Small size available only for gluten free pizzas and definitely plenty for a personal pizza order. We did separate orders with small GF pizzas for our whole party and most had at least a slice leftover to take home.

We have found Mellow Mushrooms to be a good option while traveling but I always call a new one to confirm procedures. In Aiken, they offer gf crust. Manager said it’s prepared in a separate part of the kitchen to minimize cross-contamination risk. Then it is cooked on a clean sheet pan so it doesn’t touch the oven where wheat crust goes.
