A Shakey’s Pizza Parlor Copycat Recipe
The Japanese arm of Shakey’s Pizza Parlor shared the secret recipe for its extremely popular, zesty fried potatoes on SoraNews24 so that people quarantining at home could enjoy them.
The recipe is simple. But be sure that all the slices are the same thickness. That way they fry up best. A mandolin works best for this.
Shakey’s Pizza Parlor
Shakey’s Pizza was founded in 1954 and was the first franchise pizza chain in the United States. They’ve even trademarked the slogan, “The pizza that started it all.” to commemorate this.
One of the features of early Shakey’s that James and Mark remember fondly was its large windows between the dining hall and the kitchen. We would watch as our pizza was thrown, sauce and toppings added and the whole sha-bang slid into the oven.
Shakey’s had about 500 stores globally, and 58 in the United States, as of July 2019. Currently, the stores can be found in the states of California and Washington, Japan, The Philippines, Mexico and elsewhere.
During the quarantine period of 2020, many restaurants were kind enough to share some of their most popular recipes on their websites so that fans could enjoy their favorite dishes at home. Alton has spent hours tracking down these recipes. This was a very cool thing for the restaurants to do and we are proud that we can help them share these recipes with their fans.
