Gluten Free Pizza arrives at Durham's Mellow Mushroom

After several weeks of waiting it is true Durham now has gluten free pizza! I first started writing about this back in January. Zach called attention to the breaking news last week in his gluten free Raleigh blog. The company website confirms that Durham, Raleigh and Burlington are the North Carolina test market sites for Mellow Mushroom's new gluten free pizza. And the launch date is Monday April 5th. I know where we are going for dinner!

Note: When I called Mellow Mushroom Saturday evening, the person I spoke with did not seem to know anything about the gluten free pizza option??? You may want to give a call before showing up to order your GF pizza. I will update information as it becomes available.

UPDATE as of Monday April 5th 4:30pm
I did receive an email confirmation from Jason Kemp with marketing at Mellow Mushroom that the GF pizza would be available today. However after speaking with a manager in Durham this afternoon she has stated that the GF pizza will be available to order in a week on MONDAY, APRIL 12; and she also noted they have gluten free beer too!

I tried the gourmet white on the GF crust on Sunday, Apr. 11th. I thought the staff was excellent. When I went to pick it up, they had left off the feta cheese stating that it was not GF. Unfortunately, though I found the pizza to be very bland. Maybe other pizzas will work better but I probably won't try it again for quite a while. BUT I love them for working toward better GF choices!
