Blaze Pizza is unlike any pizza place you’ve ever been to. We like to say it’s a modern day “pizza joint”, and we’re known for our custom-built pizzas served at crazy fast speed.
Each restaurant features an interactive assembly-line format that allows guests to create their own pizza any way they want– they can add any toppings they choose and it’s all one price. Then each pizza is cooked in our blazing hot open-fire oven, and is ready to eat in just 180 seconds.
Dough Knots is their first shareable side item. Developed by our executive chef, its Blaze’s modern twist on traditional breadsticks. Team members hand stretch the fresh, never frozen dough, filling each with mozzarella, garlic and pesto before baking in the restaurant’s blazing-hot oven to melty perfection. Each order of Dough Knots is baked-to-order and served with our red dipping sauce.
It’s all about the fire. Cooking by fire – we’re bringing pizza back to its roots – fire is the way pizza was meant to be cooked. Our blazing hot fire makes the pizza cook faster… and fire makes pizza taste better.
A new location just opened up at the student union at the University of Illinois.
Blaze is a chef-driven concept. We make our dough from scratch in house, and it requires a 24 hour proofing period to produce our light-as-air crisp crust. Whether you’re a meat eater or you’re looking to pile on the fresh veggies, you can get a pizza made exactly they way want at Blaze. There’s really no wrong way to play. (Just like our pizza box says….)
At Blaze Pizza, we start with high-quality, artisan toppings that are both familiar and exciting. Guests can choose from one of our Signature Pizzas, like our BBQ CHKN, or they can customize one just the way they like it; we’ve got more than 40 sauces and toppings to choose from. Along with classic toppings like pepperoni and sausage, we also have unique options like roasted garlic, applewood smoked bacon and fresh arugula. We also offer gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.
We’re big on supporting the local community, and each Blaze restaurant has an active fundraiser program, so big group or small, we encourage organizations to stop in and learn more about how we can raise funds for causes they’re passionate about.
