Wow the kids and I had a two and a half week break from home as we visited NYC and Chicago. I also took that time off of Blogging and finding it challenging to get back into things. However, when I got home I received my pass to review Chuck E Cheese pizza. Now just coming back from the pizza capitals of the country, I remained a little skeptical.
Chuck E Cheese has come up with a new pizza recipe and wanted bloggers to go visit and review it for them. They are using freshly made crusts, not frozen, zesty pizza sauce, a variety of toppings and crispier crusts. (details found on the tables there as well as on their website).
The kids have only one more week of vacation and it was a gloomy day so I decided to surprise them and take them to Chuck E Cheese. (Game tokens were included in our pass so the motivation was mixed!!)
We ordered our large pizza, half sausage/half cheese. The kids played some of the games while we waited and about 20 mins later our hot pizza arrived at our table.

I like how the pizza is sliced into 12 small slices as many kids don’t finish the entire piece. My kids were hungry so they each ate 3 slices. They said it did not compare to the places we visited in Chicago and NYC but it was better than Papa John’s.
Now it was mom’s turn to try this pizza. To be honest I had not stepped foot into a Chuck E Cheese since I was little. For some reason I have not had to take any kids to parties there, carpools are amazing. I only remembered the flat and sausage speckled pizza of the 80′s.
To my surprise the pizza was not all that bad. The crust was not soggy and the crust did not taste pre-made. The cheese was a little greasy so I still had to splat it with my napkin but I had to do that in NYC too.
I ate off the cheese side but for testing purposes I tried a piece of Sausage. It was ok but really you are feeding a bunch of game frenzied children who really don’t care too much about the taste of the pizza.
I thought I would just take a bite and leave the rest but I ate 2 slices and was satisfied. It could use a little more sauce in my opinion and a little less cheese. I think that might vary by who is making the pizza.

You can always get coupons for Chuck E Cheese’s too in the mail flyers and online. Plus they offer tokens for good grades. Had I known that before we went I would have brought our report cards. So if the kids are bored and you want to spend an hour doing something different give Chuck E Cheese’s a try.
