Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, a fast-casual artisanal pizza restaurant known for its chef-driven menu, opened a new location in Royal Palm Beach on March 31. To celebrate, the restaurant is offering free build-your-own artisanal pizzas from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, April 1 to anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
The eatery, with a 2,100-square-foot interior and seating for 54, is in the Buckingham Plaza shopping center at 250 S. State Road 7. The Royal Palm Beach location is the fifth in the South Florida market, which includes locations in Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton.
Blaze Pizza is a modern-day “pizza joint” serving up artisanal pizzas that are fast and affordable. Since its first restaurant debuted in 2012, Blaze has become one of the nation’s hottest restaurant concepts, with fans lining up for the custom-built pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’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 ingredients — all for about $8. The personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing open-flame oven — the centerpiece of the restaurant — where pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are ready to eat in just 180 seconds.
Restaurants make their own dough from scratch. For customers with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese. The new Royal Palm Beach restaurant will also feature a selection of wines and craft beers.
“Our mission at Blaze is really simple — we’re taking pizza back to its roots,” said Jim Mizes, president of Blaze Pizza. “By making dough in-house, carefully sourcing ingredients and cooking by fire, we’re giving guests a great way to enjoy artisanal pizza without the wait.”
Blaze restaurants are built with recycled and sustainable materials, use eco-friendly packaging and feature energy-efficient LED lighting.
Blaze Pizza franchise partner Adam Cummis said that he is “looking forward to developing strong ties with community groups and creating a spot where guests can connect, create and enjoy.”
To that end, Blaze restaurants promote a turnkey fundraiser program that returns 20 percent of an event’s proceeds back to the organization.
“On the heels of an incredibly successful opening in Palm Beach Gardens earlier this month, we are thrilled to continue to grow in South Florida,” Cummis said.
