As many cities and states begin to suspend indoor dining again, due to the current surge in COVID-19 cases nationwide, we could all benefit from a dose of good news. And just like clockwork, a pizza chain adored by many granted a wish we didn't even know we had: new menu items.
Mellow Mushroom didn't just roll out one or two new delicious food items, the chain introduced seven of them. From salads to stacked pizza pies, here's a quick rundown of each new menu item you can expect to see at a location near you. (Related: The Saddest Restaurant Closures In Your State.)
Kicking off the list of new menu items is the Avocado Smash appetizer which, as the name suggests, is a plate of mashed avocados seasoned with garlic, lime, and salt that sits on top of toast points. It's then topped with fresh basil, diced Roma tomatoes, and feta cheese. Another new appetizer to look forward to ordering at Mellow Mushroom is a plate of Teriyaki Wings, which includes five chicken wings.
The pizza chain is also introducing two new salads, the first of which, the Elevated Cobb Salad, has a Romaine lettuce base and contains chicken, applewood smoked bacon, avocado, tomatoes, crumbled blue cheese. Next, there's the savory yet sweet Mellow Chick Salad which packs dried cherries, sweet onions, chopped pecans, curried mayo, and an assortment of fresh veggies such as cucumber, celery, and carrots. All of these topping are tossed with a bed of spring mix and drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette.
Of course, a respected pizza chain couldn't debut a handful of new menu items if some of them weren't also pizza pies, right? Joining Mellow Mushroom's impressive lineup of pizzas is the Backyard BBQ Pie, which features roasted pork that's been doused in sweet BBQ sauce, mozzarella, Peppadew peppers, chives, and roasted poblano peppers. This flavor-filled pie is then finished with a swath of garlic butter and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
Mellow Mushroom is also welcoming the Wild in Havana Pie—a pizza topped with jerk marinated meats including pork, ham, salami. Swiss and mozzarella cheeses, diced pickles, and a mayo-mustard drizzle are other major highlights you'll see on this new menu item.
Finally, there's the Havana Hoagie sandwich which, much like the pie, includes ham, pickles, Swiss cheese, and mustard. All of these new menu items are permanent so you have ample to order them for delivery or takeout this winter and beyond!
