We do not often review a chain but as this one is a bit different than what you can get at a local restaurant, we thought we would give Blaze Pizza a try.
Their much-anticipated opening was delayed but on July 13, 2020 they finally opened. So, what makes them different? They offer Artisan pizza’s where you can create your own or customize one of their signature pizza’s. Their ingredients are fresh and do not contain artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and sweeteners. They also have gluten-free and keto crusts, vegan cheese, and plant-based spicy chorizo. Their crust is thin and is cooked quickly in an 800-degree oven. They also have a pickup window so you can order ahead and pick up at the window. What also adds to the alure is that LeBron James is an investor. They also are involved in our local community.
One orders at the counter and they deliver it to you. As you walk through the line you have a vast array of choices. I chose the Art Lover – 11 inch – with artichokes, mozzarella, ricotta, chopped garlic, red sauce dollops ($8.95) I added garlic pesto sauce to the crust and roasted garlic as a topping. My dining partner ordered the White Top – 11 inch – white cream sauce with mozzarella, applewood bacon, chopped garlic, oregano, arugula. They added red onions and roasted garlic. ($8.95) They have very different fountain beverage options too such as Blue Sky Mango Orange, Blue Sky Root Beer, Blue Sky Black Cherry. They also have salads and desserts.
So how was the pizza? Actually, I was pleasantly surprised. While it is not traditional pizza it is still pretty good. The ingredients are good quality and fresh. The pizzas were packed with flavor. The crust is by no means traditional and is ok. Everyone likes their crust different and so you need to take that into account.
However, if you are looking for a quick meal, affordable yet has good flavor and has healthy options, then you will want to give Blaze Pizza a try. You get to make a pizza you really want with all the choices as options they offer. They have delivery through the delivery apps, pick up and dine in. They also have outdoor seating.
