I went to Chuck E. Cheese‘s for my birthday party tons of years in a row when I was little. From about age 7 or 8 until probably 13 my parents would pack me and a half dozen of my friends into the bed of our pickup (with camper shell) to eat pizza and play games all afternoon. The 25 minute trek to the nearest location was so worth it, and we all came home full and full of memories.
For more than 30 years, families across the nation have enjoyed delicious pizza and classic games at the family entertainment leader. Now, Chuck E. invites guests nationwide to join in on the action and grab a piece of the fun as the company’s pizza recipe undergoes the biggest change in its history.
The new pizza features fresh, never-frozen dough, a crispier crust, fresh vegetables and 100-percent natural mozzarella cheese, freshly-grated in Chuck E. Cheese’s kitchens every day. Together, these ingredients make a “much-kneaded” recipe for a cheesier, crispier, tastier version of the childhood favorite – no matter how you slice it!
While the original recipe was loved by many families, Chuck E. Cheese’s saw “mushroom for improvement” and formulated the new recipe to accommodate the changing tastes of parents and children alike. By replacing the former blend of frozen cheeses with freshly-grated, 100-percent mozzarella and ensuring the freshness of the crust, Chuck E. Cheese’s has redefined the flavor of family fun with a consistently great-tasting pizza.
Our Take: My oldest daughter is a picky eater and a pizza snob. She was reluctant but tried Chuck E. Cheese’s pizza and said, “this is just how I like it, less sauce, more cheese, yum!” My husband and I were thrilled by this and by the taste. The stringy mozzarella cheese was fresh and plentiful on every slice. The spicy pepperoni was a nice contrast to the cheese and the crust was light and crisp.
I also noticed there wasn’t a whole lot of sauce, but what there was had a great italian seasoning flavor! We were all impressed. What was a place that recently been more popular in our immediate family for the games, has now bounced back for a place to go and have great tasting pizza too! Next time we head to Chuck E. Cheese, I look forward to a veggie pizza, to taste the freshness!
We were provided a gift card to try out the new pizza, all opinions are our own.
