Anyone tried their gluten-free pizza?

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).

Anyone tried their gluten-free pizza?

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.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
