Blaze Pizza

One of my go-to restaurants for a quick lunch or dinner is Chipotle because I can custom make my meal in a short amount of time.  But, I am always looking for another restaurant go-to, so I was excited to learn about Blaze Pizza.  Like Chipotle, Blaze Pizza is a custom-built restaurant chain.  This modern day “pizza joint” is known for its custom-built artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies, and has investors such as Maria Shriver, Lebron James, Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner, Panda Express founder Andrew Cherng, and “Alien vs Predator” producer John Davis behind the restaurant.  Each individual restaurant features an interactive assembly-line format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for under $8.  The generously-sized 11-inch pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just 180 seconds.  Each restaurant makes its own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically-acclaimed Executive Chef Bradford Kent (“The Pizza Whisperer”), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust.  For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.

“Our mission at Blaze is really simple – we’re all about bringing the community a place where guests can connect, create and enjoy great pizza at crazy fast speed,” said Jim Mizes, president & COO of Blaze Pizza. “We believe this will be a game changer on campus.”
