For people who really enjoy eating meat dishes, it's hard to go vegetarian even for just a day. But, for health reasons, many have embraced concepts such as #MeatlessMondays where they won't eat any meat for one day.
The thing is, a lot of meat-loving Filipinos think it's hard to find non-meat dishes that their palates would like. So here's the good news: Popular pizza chain, Shakey's, has partnered with UK's Quorn to bring meatiness to meatless pizzas!
A pizza without beef, bacon, or pepperoni? Shakey's Philippines assures its latest meat-free offering won't make customers miss meat. In fact, the new Premium pizzas are surprisingly good! The Quorn products, which are meat substitutes made from Mycoprotein, are a nutritionally healthy protein source, gluten-free, naturally low in saturated fat, and rich in fiber. They have the familiar taste and texture of meat, minus the big calories.
We ordered both Quorn Pizza variants from Shakey's delivery last night and enjoyed every bite. Until I told them, hubby and our sons didn't even realize that the meat-looking toppings on the pizza are not really meat!
The Protein Surprise is perfect for foodies who want a pizza with "everything on it" but are watching their weight. This pizza variant is packed with succulent Quorn Chicken-style pieces and Quorn Pepperoni. It is made extra special with black olives, bell peppers, onions, mushroom, and pineapple tidbits.
The Cheesy Chick'N pizza, on the other hand, has a delicious medley of Quorn Chicken-style pieces, onions, bell peppers, cheddar cheese, and generous amounts of drizzled cheese sauce.
FYI, the Shakey’s Quorn Pizza will be available until March 31, 2017 and can be ordered as part of the Great Meal Deals promo.
