Just because you’re abstaining from meat doesn’t mean you have to stop craving for pizza. Shakey’s new limited edition flavors for the Lenten season will surely keep you satisfied. Their lineup of meat-free goodness include the Scallop Primo Pizza, Friday Special Pizza, and the  Louisiana Shrimp Pizza. Aside from their specialty pizza, they have also released a couple of seafood pasta offerings like the Shrimp Aglio Olio Pasta, Seafood Marinara, and Black Seafood Pasta. Thank you for understanding our lenten needs, Shakey’s!
