National Pizza Chain with Vegan Cheese and Vegan Substitute toppings

Restaurant, Bar

Mellow Mushroom has recently started offering Daiya Vegan Cheese substitute on their pizzas. Other Vegan substitutes include tofu, tempeh, and avocado for pizza toppings and sandwiches. They serve appetizers, salads, calzones, hoagies, and VEGAN pizza!
(Note: Butter and Parmesan cheese are typically added to pizza crust after baking unless they're directed otherwise.)

What really sets them apart from all the other pizza joints is their famous Whole Wheat crust made with Spring Water. And Mellow Mushroom uses mostly Organic ingredients to boot!

Appetizers include:
>Garlic Bread
>Brushetta
>Hummus
>Pretzels
>Stuffed Portobello
>Spinach Artichoke Dip

Salads include:
>Greek (with red cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, kalamata olives, tomatoes, pepperoncini, banana peppers, and feta)
>Chopped (with iceberg and romaine, grape tomatoes, fresh basil, red onion, pine nuts, Kalamata olives, pepperoni, and house vinaigrette)
>Build-your-own (with your choices of lettuce, veggies, nuts, tempeh, tofu, bbq tofu, and dressing)

Hoagies (on French or wheat bread) include:
>Avocado (with lettuce, tomato, onion, sprouts, and lemon juice)
>Portobello (with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and sprouts)
>Tempeh (with grilled mushrooms, onions, green peppers, sprouts, and pesto mayo)
>Build-your-own with your choice of bread, lettuce, veggies, protein.

Pizzas include:

Mellow Mushroom has great food and is very veg friendly. It's the first restaurant in Greenville to offer vegan cheese -- amazing! I love the pizzas with Daiya cheese. And the tofu and tempeh sandwiches are the best vegan sandwiches in town (just ask if you can sub avocado for the mayo and cheese). Yum! If you are a very strict vegan, I suggest checking out their online nutritional info (http://mellowmushroom.com/public/allergens102411.pdf) before your visit because some of the sauces and marinades have dairy/honey in them. Also be sure to ask them to hold the butter and parmesan on the pizza crust.

A fun place to visit, but be prepared to wait a little while for a table and then for your food. Pizzas here can get a little pricey if you start adding on the toppings, but it's worth it for a splurge!
