Mellow Mushroom: GF Pizza Pies!

Where: Mellow Mushroom, Wake Forest, NC (This is a successful franchise. Multiple locations also apply.)

GF Menu: Yes! Check out the 04.07.2010 post on Gluten Free Raleigh for specific details. Some Mellow Mushrooms carry a GF beer option, and a GF vodka may be coming soon.

If these aren’t enough to tempt you, build your own from an impressive list of GF toppings.
