After living in the area for 4 years, my wife and I finally made it to Mellow Mushroom which is continually ranked (not sure who votes?) as the #1 pizza restaurant in Asheville. I had a Luau Pizza (ham, pineapple, mushrooms, tons of cheese, onion, etc) and wife had some funky pizza with pesto swirls all thru it. We both loved what we got. ...Know their claim to fame is use of "spring water" to make their crust. Don't know if that is what made the difference or not, but the crust was amazing. While we usually leave the bland outer crust, we each ate all of this. Mine had parmesan cheese granuals all over it, so it had lots of flavor. Will definately be back to this funcky place. Is worth going just to see all the decorations (remember this is Asheville which is a whole city full of hippies). Our two speciality 10" pizzas, with two fountain drinks was about $30 (and to this add tax/tip), so a little pricy. But it was delicious and we'll get a 2nd meal with the leftovers.
