is it possible to make it in the oven if you don't have a fryer?

sc - thanks for the history of Shakeys! I missed it the first time around (thanks, too, cara for bringing it back up).

There was a Shakey's pizza in Wichita, Kansas when I was growing up. This was before mojo potatoes, etc. They only served pizza. My mom took me there every week after my flute lesson. As I remember, we always ordered a Canadian bacon pizza.

Thanks for the memories!

Well, Shakey's is alive and well in the Philippines. It's been very popular there since the early 80's. Today its main competitor is Pizza Hut, although many upstart pizza chains have been sprouting up. Shakey's mojos are always a favorite. My favorite flavors of their thin-crust pizzas are -- Friday Special, Shakey's Special, and Manager's Choice. Whenever I visit Manila, I always have to get my Shakey's fix. Thanks Jkath for the Mojo recipe!!!! Have copied it already!

I don't have a fryer either, just filled a large skillet with sunflower oil (for frying, it is better than olive oil... it heats up more efficiently) about 1 - 1,5cm depth, cooked on each side flipping them over halfway through, then scoop them up with a slotted spatula as they became golden brown. The end result is the picture above!! It's really worth a try Cara, ganz gut!!
