Lori,

This looks to be the ingredients list for the Chuck E. Cheese pizzas:

https://www.chuckecheese.com/docs/default-source/cec_file/menu/allergan-ingredients-2016.pdf?sfvrsn=4

And this looks to be the related nutrition information:

https://www.chuckecheese.com/docs/default-source/cec_file/menu/nutritionalinformation.pdf?sfvrsn=4, and

https://www.nutritionix.com/brand/chuck-e.-cheeses/products/513fbc1283aa2dc80c000161

It looks like the pizza dough is made in-store from a premix. If so, it includes a bleached, malted and enriched flour, yeast, soybean oil, whey, sugar, salt, dextrose (a form of sugar), and a double acting baking powder. If the oil is included in the premix, it is likely to be encapsulated by spray drying. The double acting baking powder includes Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Baking Soda, Cornstarch, and Monocalcium Phosphate. At the retail level, a product such as described at https://www.clabbergirl.com/industrial/sapp/ might be suitable. Calcium sulfate is a pH regulator and a source of calcium. Sometimes it is used in a baking powder but there is no way to know if that is the case here. The ingredients list also includes soy flour and semolina but it is not clear if they are in the dough itself. I would guess that the soy flour is in the dough but that the semolina might be a bench flour.

The ingredients list for the cheese is very basic. There is no way of knowing whether the mozzarella cheese is low moisture part skim or low moisture whole milk. But at least the red pizza sauce is simple. It includes only Tomato, Salt, Spices, Citric Acid, Garlic, Onion.

I would best describe the Chuck E. Cheese pizza as being American style. It is quite similar to a Papa John's dough but maybe a thinner version that can be made and used in a short period of time, and without all of the chemicals and additives.

If you wish, you can read a bit about chemical leavening systems in the forum's Pizza Glossary at https://www.pizzamaking.com/pizza-glossary.html#C. Or you might see if you can sign up for a free webinar on chemical leavening systems at:

https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=reg20.jsp&referrer=&eventid=1270873&sessionid=1&key=7657E655F5800BE3B804B930A2F0F122&regTag=&sourcepage=register.

For your additional information, often take-and-bake pizzas (fresh) and bake-to-rise pizzas (both fresh and frozen) can both contain yeast and a chemical leavening system, whether a single-acting baking powder or a double-acting baking powder. You can see examples in the PMQ Recipe Bank at http://www.pmq.com/Recipe-Bank/All-purpose-dough-formulation-for-Take-and-Bake-Pizza and at http://www.pmq.com/Recipe-Bank/Bake-to-Rise-Pizza-Dough.

I suppose it is also possible that Chuck E. Cheese has a local off-site facility that makes the pizzas in advance and delivers them to their stores, quite possibly in the form of take-and-bake pizzas. If the yeast is in the proper place in the ingredients statement, the pizzas might even be frozen. But, if made fresh, they could also be made in-store.

Lori,

After I posted, I found this Serious Eats article on Chuck E. Cheese that suggests that their pizzas are made in-store:

http://slice.seriouseats.com/archives/2011/07/chain-reaction-chuck-e-cheeses-new-pizza-recipe.html.

The pizza shown in the article was clearly baked on a pizza screen and a conveyor oven.

I also found this YouTube video:

Here's a link to the pizza trays:

I've used them in a commercial setting and didn't care for them at all, but for home use they may work ok

I went there about 9 months ago, the pizza was extremely salty.
