Mellow Mushroom Restaurant Review

: “The 'Shroom," as it's fondly known, is an Atlanta-founded pizza institution. An array of toppings such as spinach, tofu and broccoli, along with meats that are cooked in-house, give the pie fan with health in mind a break from the standards (which are available as well). The house special is topped with a grab bag of sundry items while a more classical pie is made with pesto sauce and mozzarella. We fancy the Gourmet White, layered with cheeses as well as fresh and sun-dried tomatoes. What underlies it all, however, is the dough, made with spring water at the central commissary, and sauces that aren't doctored up with refined sugars. Sandwiches, such as the Italian hoagie, may be ordered in half versions. Salads are a good buy. Slices are available Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Other locations.
