Made in Minutes
Blaze Pizza has managed to marry quality with efficiency. The quick-service pizza chain promises made-to-order pizzas cooked in a matter of minutes.
It’s about the details here. The pizza starts with fresh, made-from-scratch dough. Patrons can choose from healthy, artisanal ingredients added in an assembly-line fashion. The menu boasts signature pizzas as well as custom pies.
Blaze Pizza offers a gluten-free option as well as a thicker version of the standard thin-crust. For those avoiding dairy, there is a vegan cheese option. The 11-inch personal size portion is impressive, especially given the price point. (Pizzas range from $5.45-$8.45.)
The pizzas may be the star of the show, but the greens play a supporting role. Salads are made fresh on site and range from a classic Caesar to an arugula and fruit creation. Even the soft drinks are nontraditional. The soda fountain features several syrups made with cane sugar, a healthier alternative to the traditional corn syrup.
