Kids. Pizza. Games. What better place to have a great family dinner or celebration than Chuck E. Cheese? But, I know what comes to my mind when I think of pizza at a kids establishment (or any food, really): tasteless and greasy.
Chuck E. Cheese has reinvented the pizza they serve at their restaurants. After 30 years, this is by far the biggest improvement they made. They’ve replaced the frozen elements of their pizza with 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.
We visited our local Chuck E. Cheese last week and my sons didn’t know what to do first. We ordered our pizza (seemed like the logical first move) and then found a booth seat (I like any seat that I can corner an 18 month and 3 year old in) while we waited for the fresh, pepperoni pizza to be brought to us. We had about a 15 minute wait and the pizza arrived. Of course, by this time my kids were too crazed to sit still so we played a few games and then came back to eat.
The new Chuck E. Cheese pizza came out looking great. Just the right amount of cheese and they were certainly not skimping on the pepperoni. When I took a slice there was that ooey-gooeyness of pulled cheese. YUM.If you’ve read my posts before, you probably are aware that I have super pickey eaters in my house. These kids live on crackers, mac n’ cheese and sometimes, if I’m lucky, chicken nuggets. Pizza isn’t high on the list for them. My husband and I were impressed with the pizza, but the real test was seeing if my picky boys would touch it.
To my delight my 18 month old LOVED eating this pizza. The pizza is sliced kid-sized, but I took it a bit further and made mini-slices for him to hold and eat. I wasn’t pushing my luck, so I pulled the pepperoni off his slices. I think he ate an entire slice! Of course his big brother couldn’t be bothered, it was too hard to pull him away from the action!
