I talked to corporate today before our venture to Chuck E Cheese's today and I was assured the pizza would be safe for my peanut, tree nut, egg allergic daughter. I am one to never allow her to eat at any restaurant including fast food. She had two slices of pizza and was thrilled to be like the other kids. And I didn't have to pack pizza separately for her. I was thrilled too!

Apparently it is standard across all restaurants that they get a crust mix and mix it in a bowl and stretch it, then add the standard sauce and cheese.

They do have sliced boiled eggs on the salad bar but they come pre-boild and pre-peeled. They just slice them before putting the out. The birthday cakes are not baked at the restaurant and are supplied by another company.

So....I felt very happy with their response. They also did not have any peanut ice cream products in the machine.

Here is the email I received today with ingredients.

--------------------------------------------
Hello,

Here are the ingredient declarations for our cheese pizzas;

Crust pre-mix:
Ingredients: Enriched bleached wheat flour (Wheat flour, malted barley
flour, niacin, ferrous sulfate, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic
acid), Soybean oil, sugar, salt, yeast, soy protein concentrate, natural
flavor.

Pizza sauce:
Ingredients: Tomato puree (water, tomato paste), sugar salt, spices,
citric acid, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Pizza Cheese:
Ingredients: Low moisture part skim mozzarella cheese (pasteurized part
skim milk, cultures, salt, and enzymes), cheddar cheese (pasteurized
milk, cultures, salt, and enzymes), provolone cheese (pasteurized milk,
cultures, salt, and enzymes), powdered cellulose (added to prevent
caking), sodium citrate, flavors, annatto, and sodium propionate (added
as a preservative).

We do not serve products that have peanuts or tree nuts in them.

Some products are processed in plants that use peanuts and or

tree nuts in other applications. Those are our Birthday Cakes,

Cinnamon Spread, Icing for our dessert items, selected

single serve, novelty ice cream offerings, & Sunflower Seeds.

Hope this was helpful.

Best regards,

Vince Corsick
