Have you seen the commercial yet? It’s so enticing you wish you can reach into the TV and grab a slice of the new Shakey’s Firehouse pizza.

Just the site of succulent sausage slices, smokey pepperoni, crisp red onion rings, thick melted cheese, fresh basil bits, and fiery chili flakes on top of a thin crispy crust is enough to stimulate your salivary glands to overdrive.

Needless to say I was smitten, and thankfully, the god of timing was looking down on me with a twinkle in his eye.

Some of my girlfriends were up for an afternoon chit chat and after dropping not-so-subtle hints, we agreed to meet up at Shakey’s Lacson right across Avenue Suites, the venue we initially agreed on.

There were 3 of us. One was going through a detox phase so she’ll have nothing but greens and water and the other one was a huge Shakey’s fan, up for anything new on the menu.

Guess what we had over conversation and giggles? The New Shakey’s Firehouse Pizza. Truth be told, I demanded to have it for sharing.

Knowing it’s going to be hot but not knowing how hot it would be I strategically ordered a strawberry milkshake. I’m a smart girl, yah know! Just in case the insides of my mouth burst into flames, I have a tall glass off casein-filled milkshake to douse it with.

Shakey’s Firehouse Pizza is everything you’d want in one. It’s meaty. It’s cheesy. It’s loaded with toppings. The crust is crisp but at the same time it’s soft and chewy. The different textures and flavours come together really well. It’s 100% savory goodness with a kick. It packs heat, but not too strong, just enough to remind you you’re munching on the Firehouse Pizza.

However (and it’s a big one), as much as I love that the Firehouse Pizza tickled my tastebuds in all the right places, I couldn’t help but think it could be any other pizza sprinkled with chili flakes. I mean it could be their Belly Buster pizza sprinkled with chili flakes. It could be the Manager’s Choice, the Classic Italian Sausage, the Hi Protein Supreme as long as it’s sprinkled with chili flakes.

Don’t get me wrong. The new Shakey’s Firehouse pizza tastes good but IMHO nothing sets it apart except for the heat and spiciness. In fact, it reminded me a little of the 1954 Pizza they once offered for a limited time.

And I can’t help but reminisce. That’s the pizza they ought to keep on their menu. As their famous blonde icon said, “Some like it hot. Me, I like it vintage.”
