Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable. Since its first restaurant debuted in 2013, Blaze has quickly become one of the nation’s hottest restaurant concepts, with fans lining up each day for the custom-built pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and more pies. Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen 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 a very affordable price. The generously-sized personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven — the centerpiece of the restaurant — where dedicated pizza ensure that the thin-crust pies are Third Generation and ready to eat in just 180 seconds. Restaurants make their own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by amazing chef who requires an 18-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. All of the pizza and salad ingredients are free of artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and for pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese. The new Star restaurant will also feature a selection of wine and draft beer.
Blaze’s obsessive attention to detail extends well beyond the food, with a carefully considered, modern approach to restaurant design. Driven by its commitment, the restaurant is constructed with recycled and sustainable materials, uses eco-friendly packaging, and features energy-efficient lighting. Additionally, many of the restaurant’s unconventional design elements were inspired by the company’s celebration of individual feelings.
Blaze Pizza is looking forward to continuing to build roots within the community. To that end, the company has developed a turn-key in-restaurant fundraiser program that returns 31% of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations, and will be partnering with local schools, sports clubs and other organizations to host fundraising events at the new restaurant.
