The MELLOW MUSHROOM – My Favourite Pizzeria in the UNIVERSE :-)


The Mellow Mushroom

So The MELLOW MUSHROOM is my favourite Pizzeria in the Universe. It is an American Pizza Chain that originated in Atlanta, Georgia. It is just so cool. The food is amazing, there is lot of great veggie options and I just love the friendly vibe. The decor and artwork on the walls are always super cool and amazing. Kinda Cosmic. You can see some of their artwork online.


Mellow Mushroom Asheville

The last time I went to The Mellow Mushroom it was when I was visiting Asheville in North Carolina, USA. I love visiting that area, There is a really arty, hippy, musical, veggie vibe there. I also went to The Mellow Mushroom in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Mellow Food Philosophy is as follows… “Mellow is a State of mind, a culture, a way of being. Our mission is to provide delicious food in a fun and creative environment. We are the originators of hand tossed, stone baked classic southern pizza. Our spring water crust is unique and flavorful, and all our pies are made with high quality, fresh ingredients.

Mellow Memories

I was reminded of my favourite Pizzeria when a friend from the USA whatsapped me a photo that he was having a Pizza at the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville today, πŸ™‚

Mellow Mushroom Restaurant

“Mellow Mushroom opened in Atlanta, Georgia in 1974 when two college students from Georgia Tech, later joined by a third from the University of Georgia, founded a business that reflected their eccentric philosophies.” (Wikipedia)

Mellow Mushroom is in over 150 locations across the USA. A place to check out for a chilled out, mellow pizza experience…

  1. I’ve never heard of them. However I’m from Chicago and no pizza compares to ours. Sorry we have pizza places that are fantastic, that actually hand toss and back in brick ovens yum. I miss my hometown and the wide range ethnic food choices and vegan.

  2. Mellow Mushroom is a great pizza joint. I’d never heard of it until 7 or 8 years ago. On a flight from Asia I was sitting next to a man who said he was one of the founders. (His name is on the tip of tongue but escapes me.) He is probably very wealthy but we were in coach. He gave me a $25 certificate that I used for my first taste of Mellow Mushroom. πŸ™‚
