DALLAS, Nov. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheese pizza, mac n' cheese, and Cheetos®. For cheese-lovers, the three are now combined in one delicious dish! For a limited time only, Chuck E. Cheese's is upgrading its popular Mac-Cheesy Pizza with a wild, new twist. The family dining and entertainment leader is introducing "Cheetos Mac-Cheesy Pizza," featuring a creamy cheese sauce mixed with elbow macaroni, smothered in melted, bubbly Colby and 100 percent whole milk mozzarella cheese - all topped with a magnificent, crunchy layer of Cheetos.
"Most people don't realize that Cheetos have been around for nearly 70 years!" said Chef Gregory Casale, senior director of culinary innovation for CEC Entertainment, Inc. "Combine them all and the new Cheetos Mac-Cheesy Pizza is sure to be a family favorite."
The cheese-pleasing Cheetos Mac-Cheesy Pizza joins Chuck E. Cheese's menus at restaurants nationwide Nov. 1 through the end of the year. The Cheetos Mac-Cheesy Pizza, like all Chuck E. Cheese's pizzas, is made fresh daily and available on traditional crust.
"We're excited to add Cheetos atop our Mac-Cheesy Pizza for even more crunch, flavor and fun," said Tom Leverton, CEO of CEC Entertainment Inc. "Chuck E. Cheese's and PepsiCo have had a longstanding partnership, and this is a unique opportunity to align our brands and signature flavors for this one-of-a-kind pizza."
