You're Grilling WRONG! ►
Chuck E. Cheese pizza is a modern age folktale all on its own. From the infamous docuseries, to all of the other theories spread across DElevel and the internet at large, we ALL know what this theory is going to be about. Is Chuck E Cheese pizza recycled? Do the employees use uneaten pizza slices from previous patrons to build "new" pizzas that they then serve to other customers? Food Theorists, our team is out to prove whether that is true or just a piece of hot, cheese fiction!

    I’m half way through the video. How can they stitch the left over pizza together if no one can eat inside and leave left overs? (at the time) Edit: ok so mats pizza was messed up but how could it be left overs if no one is able to eat in and leave left overs? Edit 2: so mat just said what I said lol

    I’m pretty sure that they just single the pizzas (like a single slice, because that’s how people usually order them when they aren’t in a large group) and then group them when someone orders a pie.

    Sorry watched this late. But what if there was a type of ingredient in the pizza that expanded in heat and shrieked in the cold. When they cut the pizza it was hot but in places where this said ingredient was more potent I would shrink. Just a thought

    I worked at C.E.C. in the late 2000. This never happend. I made sure my pizzas looked good. Funny thing is we had a pizza hut cutting blade. I loved working there and loved the food. I was cross trained for ever position but was mainly a cook. I can't wait to take my kid there when he is old enough. Here's hoping its still in business.

    My personal theory was that they just sold single slices and if someone ordered a pie they’d sometimes combine partially disassembled pies. Seems like that’s not the case but that’s what my initial thought would have been way before “they recycle the slices”.


    after our pizzaria closed, we found out they are worse than us!
