This is the last post of our Charlotte visit. We had a great time in the South and it was good see a new city. I was a bit disappointed in the southern accents though. I know a couple of hours further South everyone is speaking with a twang. I guess Charlotte is a bit more refined. I was hoping for more accents.
After eating so well during our other meals, we decided that we wanted a somewhat lighter fare and decided pizza was the way to go. Plus the place was called Mellow Mushroom. How could we not go? Apparently many others had the same idea and we ended up waiting for a table and the food for a while. The atmosphere was quite lively and there was a half a bus painted hippie style inside.
Coming from New York and Connecticut we had some pretty opinionated pizza eaters. It was good pizza but not New Haven style or New York style. I think I am going to have problems for the rest of my life if I ever move somewhere away from the area I live now. We have a family owned Italian restaurant every other building. Pizza is a big thing here and super good.
The crust here was a bit sweet and coated in Parmesan cheese. It was almost like bread sticks wrapped around the pizza. I got mine loaded with veggies. With a pretzel appetizer, just cause we wanted to see what they were, and three slices of an individual pizza and I was beyond stuffed.
Good news is these pizza joints are located across the south and into the west. Check out if a location is near year.
Have you ever had pizza in different locations across the USA?
What was your favorite?
