Choosing pizza toppings is a lot like being married: if there is an irreconcilable disagreement, both parties take half. Grab a piece of the pie with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of stone-baked pizza and craft beers at Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers's downtown Denver and Centennial locations.
The circular-comestibles chefs at Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers master a cheer-inducing combination of stone-baked pizza and craft beer, providing diners with innovative menus. Both Denver and Centennial menus feature a house special pie ($13.95–$27.95) that arranges bites of mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, ham, smoked backon, and a variety of vegetables across a doughy bed cushioned with fresh red sauce, and a gourmet kosmic karma pizza ($13–$25.95), which stars often-understudying ingredients including feta, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes with a dash of pesto. The restaurant's repertoire of grilled hoagies includes Denver’s pesto-and-basil-loaded capri ($6 half; $9.75 whole), and Centennial’s Irv’s ($6.40 half; $9.95 whole), which boasts an edible collage of grilled sausage, caramelized onions, and green peppers. A fully stocked bar features at least 36 draft beers, including Odell's Cutthroat Porter and Rogue Dead Guy Ale, all of which are more tasty palate cleansers than standard options such as ice-cube platters or ginger lollipops.
Unlike the government-funded chain of White House drive-thrus, no two Mellow Mushroom locations are exactly alike. Each location boasts events and features such as live music, heated patios, and an abundance of flat-screen TVs that make it more than an impersonal digestion station. Great for family dinners or casually romantic first dates, Mellow Mushroom ensures an eclectic, welcoming noshing ambiance and proudly serves local brews.
