Since no one has responded to your question, you might want to use the google search button on the top right hand corner of your screen for Mellow Mushroom. There have been quite a few posts on this subject. (I don't have any Mellow Mushroom restaurants where I live so have no experience with them).

I haven't tried it yet, but I did read some reviews. They do have a dedicated kitchen area and dedicated kitchen tools to avoid CC, and employees are apparently trained, but these are franchises so the preparation may vary from place to place.

I haven't seen any reviews yet that mention CC or a gluten reaction after eating, but several reviews said the crust wasn't very tasty. And one review said that only the manager of the store was trained to make the gluten-free pizzas, and because he was so busy it took them over an hour to get their lunch.

i always go to mellow mushroom for gluten free pizza! i have been to several locations, and i have never had a problem with cross contamination or anything really. the crust is awesome, and actually crispy and doesnt fall apart. i would definitely recommend it!

While my daughter was in Raleigh she went to Mellow Mushroom a couple to times for pizza. One night I went with her and it was good! Her friends split a gluten-free pizza (one had no gluten issues but didn't want to buy a whole pizza) and she thought is was great!

I've been twice. Both times were yummy and both times no reaction. I do react to bad CC but certainly not super sensitive.

We first checked out their restaurant in Arlington, TX and have been to one in Carmel, IN three or four times (when we're in Indy we pretty much always go there).

Theirs may be my favorite gluten-free pizza. Talking to the staff I also get the impression that they take CC seriously. And compared to many other places that offer limited varieties but will "let" you "build your own" one overpriced topping at a time, they offer a reasonable selection of "specials."

There was some gluten in my pizza at the Mt Pleasant, SC location. I don't know if it was CC or if the toppings were CC? I had an all meats pizza, was that a bad idea? Pepperoni maybe?

Pepperoni is highly unlikely to have gluten.

I ate there in Durham, NC 2 years ago and didn't like it. I don't like bean flours at all, and they use bean flours in their crust. I felt safe eating there in terms of knowledgeable servers and cross-contamination issues, but I just can't past that bean flour taste.
