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 IRbin 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!

    But no one is allowed to eat in there so where did they get the "recycled" pizza slices? MYTH DISSPROVENT

  • Just Hooni

    still the slices are uneven in size so that doesnt make sense unless they’re cutting them individually but like why would anyone do that its much quicker to cut even lines

    I'm not gonna lie I seem to have a childhood memory of them taking the pizza back to the kitchen I remember this bc I'm pretty sure I asked them why (I was a curious child) and they told me they were taking it to the back to throw it out but my child brain was satisfied with that but now I'm wondering...

    Maybe it’s not the pizza that’s recycled but the salads. Me and my granddaughter went to Chuck E. Cheese when she was like six or something.I got a salad from the salad bar. My granddaughter watched one of the employees pick a part my salad and put it back in to the sections that they belong for the salad bar.

    That employees explanation for why the pizzas look Frankenstein-ish is exactly what my friend who worked there told me years ago. She said they’re hard to cut, and that makes it look funky.


    yeah, i never went to chuck e cheese because i have never seen the actual place in my entire life.

    You should actually do a music theory 👇🏾

  • Meoiswa

    The answer is very simple: they transfer slices of pizza from a cutting surface, to the pizza box / serving tray, without being careful to reassemble the pizza in the exact same configuration, leading to the jagged slices look, as it is of little importance to the average customer. This is probably a consequence of raising the output volume of pizzas to satisfy demand during peak times (specially during large birthday parties), which is probably the reason why they use dull cutters, to prevent injuries during fast paced use. Extra care is must be put to preserve the neat look for the alternative storefront pizzas, as adults would be more likely to judge the product by its looks, and the profit margins are much higher. They may even use a sharp implement for these as they are prepared with more time available. I bet if you put the time, you could reassemble the pizzas back to a neat configuration, sans the eventual stuck-to-the-cutting-implement pepperoni slice.

    I thought we were done with FNaF

  • LordofFullmetal

    I strongly disagree that the blade is causing it. I've used some janky blades to cut pizzas - including a rocking one - and they've never done THAT to a pizza. The slices are sometimes noticeably longer or shorter than each other; how does the blade magically add and remove pizza in areas that it wasn't even touching? I think the most believable theory is that they're recycling fresh slices. If they sell single slices, speaking as someone who works at a pizzeria that DOESN'T for this exact reason, you're gonna have leftover slices. Why not just chuck those slices together to make a whole new pizza?

    Putting it out there. I came back to this video after watching the subway no tuna theory because of my curiosity concerning the idea that recycling the pizza slices could actually save them money. If we lived in an alternate universe where Chuck E. Cheese was actually the dark and troubled Freddy Fazbears under the leadership of the corner cutting, cheapskate of F.B entertainment how much, if any money would be saved by doing this. I mean the tuna thing would supposedly have been a few cents and there was the whole weight=pizza thing from the delivery episode. All I want to know is “Could you actually hypothesize based on number of pizzas per day, probability of there being leftovers, across the locations (etc.) What amount of money would (again if at all) be saved?” All my love and support to this channel. ~Cheers

    I was never aloud to go to chuck e cheese because I got super sick from their pizza, so we went there a year later and I got sick again. There is definitely something off with their pizza, dont know if its necessarily from different pizza slices from different pizza but still got sick from their pizza

    looking back here, from both game theory film theory and food theory, i see it as this, I loved Chuck E Cheese as a kid, seeming im going to be 17 soon, i see Chuck E Cheese as a staple of fun as a kid, note that chuck and his crew always looked janky, but that's because NC just retro fitted them from the Rock-A-Fire Explosion band, never changed them once, but the one in Harford Connecticut had better animatronics so im going to use that one, they always had junked up pizza, bad looking, but good to the taste, i see it as, the pizza cutters fault, if it was dull like you said, then it would be hard to cut, ive worked with dull pizza cutters and it does look like that after some time, but i also see it as the fact of, kids, some kids, ok most kids, cant hold that much food in them as a result of no being fully grown, the employees could have taken this into consideration and cut it that way, so that the grown ups and teens who were dragged there by their families could get the bigger slices, and the kids get the small slices, but taking this into consideration, if they were to be reheating the pizza, and just sticking it all together, then we would know that because one of the slices would be over cooked, almost burnt, making it bluntly obvious, but we never do see that, its all evenly cooked, and seems almost the same golden brown. But hey that's just a theory- A FOOD THEORY!!

    A few years back, I had to attend a kid's birthday at CEC. I planned to just blend in and hope no one notice I wasn't eating the pizza. It's a crowd I'm not always around and I didn't want to make a thing out of the fact I'm allergic to wheat. But to my surprise, the person that invited me ordered a gluten free pizza. Those were actually available at the CEC, and it was surprisingly good. I think they always got a bad rap because of adults judging the marketing targeting kids.

    the part with chuclke cheese employes recyling pizza is just dumb i mean you ever have a pizza and then done and went to play some games or watch tv or stuff and when you go back to grab a slice it was cold and some just taste like it was like super dried out or it's little cissors it's kinda good but recycling food they are lazy just to make another pizza pie that they just used another pizza pie parts like this lazy ever have that moment when you just don't wanna go to school so you just like faked out to not go to school and do a bunch of random stuff and every one at school is just like yeah he is probably faking it again or just like faking your own body damage and just go into a hospital and just have to go through a spine reset and then relizing how stupid that plan was just for some stuff he or she wanted
