Chuck E Cheese has done it! They are offering gluten free pizza and a cupcake, and have taken extraordinary steps to ensure there is no cross-contamination.

And there are no worries about cross-contamination! Eating out is one of the most challenging parts of being gluten free. Few kitchens are strictly gluten free. In the past seven years, almost all of our glutenized issues have been around eating out. So thank you Chuck E Cheese for providing this safe, cross-contamination free, option! I really hope that more and more companies will be inspired to do this.
Having fought the "I am the only kid at the party who cannot eat the cake and pizza" battle for seven years, I honestly don't even care what it taste like.
I just think it so awesome that gluten free kids can go to the party and eat pizza with everyone else.
Chuck E. Cheese’s worked with two respected partners to develop an innovative and unique pizza and dessert process. The gluten-free pizza arrives at Chuck E. Cheese’s locations in pre-sealed packaging from Conte’s Pasta’s dedicated, certified gluten-free facility in New Jersey. The Bake-in-Bag® Pizza remains sealed while cooked and delivered, until it is opened and served with a sealed personal pizza cutter at families’ tables by the adult in charge.
Under the same gluten-free procedure, chocolate fudge cupcakes from Fabe’s All Natural Bakery remain in pre-sealed, single-serve packaging until opened and served at the table.
“Given that gluten-free products are something we’ve wanted to offer for the last few years, it feels very gratifying to deliver a product that reflects our commitment to providing even our guests with strict gluten intolerance with a product that still tastes great and expands the Chuck E. Cheese’s experience from games to food and fun for so many families,” Elliot said. “It’s a great example of how we’re working towards consistent quality across the board to make all facets of guests’ visits more enjoyable.”
The gluten-free cheese pizza can be purchased at more than 500 Chuck E. Cheese’s locations in the U.S. and Canada for $5.99, the same price as its individual size pizza with traditional crust. The gluten-free chocolate fudge cupcake is sold for $2.99 in the U.S. and $3.49 in Canada.
