Chuck E. Cheese's new thin-crust pizzas are featured on its updated menu and its pepperoni defeated Pizza Hut's in a national taste test.
Chuck E. Cheese isn't just for kids when it comes to food and its thin and crispy pepperoni pizza is getting some raves after winning a blind taste test against Pizza Hut's pie.
A nationwide blind taste test reveals the majority of pizza testers, 57 percent, preferred Chuck E. Cheese's over Pizza Hut's, according to a press release from CEC Entertatinment, parent company of Chuck E. Cheese's.
Chuck E. Cheese's new thin-crust pizzas are featured on its updated menu, which launched this summer from Executive Chef Gregory Casale. Casale recently expanded the test kitchen at the company's new Dallas headquarters, the release stated.
In addition Chuck E. Cheese's is getting some accolades for its adult-friendly menu, as much as its games for children.
"For kids, a visit to Chuck E. Cheese's is all about the exhilarating experience — tokens, tickets, prizes, and of course, Chuck E. himself — but now we've struck a chord with parents by offering great tasting pizza," said Tom Leverton, CEO of CEC Entertainment. "Beating one of America's best-known brands just proves we've got the pizza prowess to please the whole family. Pepperoni pizza is a standard kid favorite, but we're winning mom over with freshly-made dough, hand grated mozzarella, and sauce made with vine ripened tomatoes."
Chuck E. Cheese's also has two new pizzas, the Cali Alfredo, with alfredo sauce, mushrooms, spinach, sausage, and chicken and the BBQ Chicken, featuring BBQ sauce, chicken, crispy onions, and green peppers. Both are available with the thin and cispy or traditional crust.
Other new menu items include roasted BBQ chicken and Italian sub sandwiches on baked ciabatta bread, chicken caesar or club wraps on whole wheat tortillas, and boneless wings.
