Basically everyone who graduates from Mizzou has inhaled at least twelve large Shakespeare's pizzas somehow, some way. I never understood what was so great about it, but hey, pizza is pizza.

Having gone to Shakespeare’s multiple times over the last two decades I was concerned that it being re-created in the new building where it previously stood would affect the food or certainly the atmosphere. However it is as good as the old place. Great pizza...More

I've been a devoted fan of Shakespeare’s Pizza for 30 years. Try the whole wheat, thin crust for a great pizza without a lot of dough.

I thought the pizza was very good, we were in town for a swim meet. After being at the pool all day we didn't want to go out so we had the pizza delivered to the hotel. We called at 4:30 and requested that they...More

When they had to move into the rebuilt building a year or so ago, I worried that it wouldn't be the same. Most everyone worried. But they did a surprisingly good job. The 'new' place looks very much the same and the Pizza is just...More

Thanks for coming in!! We're thrilled that you like the "new old" shakes. We even built it with all the same bricks, ceiling tiles, and car-siding walls, too! We appreciate you being a fan for so long. Hope to see you back again soon!

Yes they do have a gluten free option. They only have a 12" crust available and it's not a crust they produce within their kitchen.
