It’s another summer of record-breaking heat in Arizona. But the hot daytime temps means more opportunities to dine indoors at new exciting food destinations. And one of those is Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, a modern day ‘pizza joint’ offering customers fast and affordable pies with artisanal flavors.
Locations in Phoenix
There are six Blaze Pizza locations now in greater Phoenix. A new 1700-sq-ft. location opened in June in Glendale, and it joins the company’s other Arizona locations in Central Phoenix, North Phoenix, Tempe, Avondale and Tucson. A 7th Blaze restaurant in AZ is expected to open in North Scottsdale later this year.
Approach to Freshness
What makes Blaze Pizza so intriguing (and delicious) is its approach to fresh ingredients, a casual dining vibe and its customized pies. Customers can order a basic pizza, then customize it with a wide variety of fresh veggies, meats and cheeses. The pizzas are then fired in a blazing hot open-flame oven for about 3 minutes, and come out perfectly cooked and ready to eat. These large $8 pizzas are perfectly sized for a work lunch or casual dining with friends.
Blaze Pizza is one of the hottest restaurant concepts in the US, with a recent top ranking in the FastCasual.com Top 100 Movers and Shakers list. The company has grown rapidly, with expected 2017 sales of $300 million and nearly 175 locations by the end of the year. Not bad for a pizza chain concept that started only five years ago with just two locations.
Fans of Blaze Pizza may like its fast, fresh and convenient experience, as it suits an on-the-go lifestyle, but they rave over the crispy, delicious crust and the artisanal approach to fresh pizza ingredients. The company uses no chemicals and no additives in all its food items. Plus, Blaze Pizza also stays abreast of healthy eating choices for certain customers, offering up gluten free crust options and even vegan cheese.
