DALLAS, July 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Who says you can't have your pizza and eat your veggies too? Starting today, Chuck E. Cheese® is adding NEW Super Cauli Crust pizza to its menus nationwide for a limited time, helping parents of picky eaters turn pizza night into veggie night. America's leading family and dining entertainment venue has teamed up with the leader in cauliflower innovation, CAULIPOWER®, to be the only national brand to offer this tasty, cauliflower-based crust in-restaurant and for delivery through DoorDash, UberEats and GrubHub.
The Chuck E. Cheese 10-inch Super Cauli Crust pizza, powered by CAULIPOWER, starts at $8.99 with toppings at $1.49 each. The crust includes cauliflower as the number one ingredient, meaning it's packed with veggies and naturally gluten-free while delivering the beloved pizza taste even the most vegetable-averse kids (or moms and dads!) will love. Chuck E. Cheese will still offer its delicious traditional gluten-free pizza crust, but this marks the first time a vegetable-based pizza crust option is on the menu.
"I know personally how hard it can be to convince kids to eat healthy, with two children under the age of eight. Our Super Cauli Crust pizza tastes so good, it's the perfect way to sneak veggies into the kids' pizza meal," said Ashley Zickefoose, Chief Marketing and Concept Officer, CEC Entertainment, Inc.
"As the mom of two boys diagnosed with celiac disease at a young age, I grew frustrated when my kids couldn't enjoy the pizza at childhood parties," said Gail Becker, CEO and Founder, CAULIPOWER. "We are thrilled to be partnering with the number one place for birthdays – Chuck E. Cheese – to bring America's #1 better-for-you pizza as an option that the whole family can enjoy." Zickefoose added, "Both Chuck E. Cheese and CAULIPOWER believe in all kids having fun and enjoying great tasting pizza. Our new Super Cauli Crust pizza is one more reason for kids and parents alike to love Chuck E. Cheese."
The new Super Cauli Crust pizza comes on the heels of continued growth and innovation for Chuck E. Cheese, in particular on its menu. Recently, Chuck E. Cheese capitalized on the unicorn trend by debuting their Unicorn Churros, as well as extended its Endless Salad Bar with more than 30-toppings to be available all day at participating locations. Previous limited-time pizza offers from the brand include Candy Corn Pizza, Spaghetti and Meatballs Pizza and Mac-Cheesy Pizza.
