Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza Expanding Across Orange County, CA
Build-Your-Own Pizza Chain Coming Soon To Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, La Habra, Santa Ana, Brea and Newport Beach
May 13, 2014 – Los Angeles, California – Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the leader in the fast casual build-your-own artisanal pizza category, today announced that it will soon open six new locations in Orange County, CA. This summer, sites will open in the Shops at Mission Viejo (in the mall’s high-traffic food court), Laguna Niguel’s Plaza De La Paz Shopping Center (27231 La Paz Road), and La Habra’s Westridge Plaza (1360 S. Beach Blvd). In early fall, Blaze Pizza will open in Westfield’s Mainplace Mall in Santa Ana. Additional Orange County locations including restaurants in Brea and Newport Beach will be announced soon.
Blaze Pizza uses an interactive ordering format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create one of their own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for under $8. The generously sized personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven — the centerpiece of the restaurant — where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are “fast-fire’d” in less than 180 seconds. Each restaurant makes its own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically-acclaimed Executive Chef Brad Kent (“The Pizza Whisperer”), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. The restaurant’s menu of pizzas and salads uses fresh ingredients ranging from inventive to classic and accommodates a range of dietary needs, with a gluten-free dough and vegan cheese option.
