DALLAS, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- How do you satisfy a New Yorker's pizza craving? Take them to Chuck E. Cheese's! That may sound a little cheesy, but the company—which serves 6.8 million pounds of cheese every year—just released a blind taste test video set on the streets of Manhattan showing that the proof is truly in the pizza.
Amidst an abundance of fun, games and entertainment, Chuck E. Cheese's guests are susceptible to discounting its delicious menu. By going incognito in an unmarked food truck, the brand put its pizza in the spotlight, and now more New Yorkers than ever are heading to their local Chuck E. Cheese's for a piece of the pie.
"What better place to test the taste of our new pizza than New York City?" quipped Chef Gregory Casale, senior director of culinary innovation for CEC Entertainment, Inc. "Even the Big Apple's hard-core pizza fans loved our improved recipes made with hand-stretched dough, locally sourced veggies and fresh 100% whole milk mozzarella."
Appropriately released on National Cheese Lover's Day, the video shows Chef Casale and his crew sampling pizza on the streets of Manhattan and captures New Yorkers' surprise and delight when they discover the great-tasting pizza was actually made by Chuck E. Cheese's. Unsuspecting New Yorkers were wowed by two recipes from the brand's enhanced menu, launched in 2015. Taste testers were especially impressed with Chuck E. Cheese's Thin & Crispy Pepperoni pizza—which recently beat Pizza Hut in a nationwide taste test. They also loved the fresh, sophisticated flavor of the Cali Alfredo pizza, made with a creamy white sauce and topped with spinach, sausage, mushrooms and roasted chicken breast. The video celebrates those who have always loved Chuck E. and introduces fresh, great tasting recipes to devoted cheese lovers. With its taste test video, Chuck E. Cheese's is continuing to spark positive, lifelong memories for families through fun, food and play.
