PALMDALE – Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza is opening a Palmdale location this Friday, Dec. 4. To celebrate the grand opening, the restaurant is offering free build-your-own artisanal pizzas, from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., to anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.
The new Blaze Pizza restaurant, which features a 2,300 square foot space, is located at the Antelope Valley Mall (1233 W. Rancho Vista Blvd.), next to Dick’s Sporting Goods and H&M.
Dubbed a “modern day pizza joint,” the 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 fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for about $8. The personal pizzas are then sent to an open-flame oven where pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are “fast-fire’d” and ready to eat in 180 seconds.
Blaze Pizza also offers salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies. The Palmdale restaurant will feature a selection of wine and craft beer, company officials said in a news release.
“Our mission at Blaze is really simple – we’re taking pizza back to its roots, “ stated Jim Mizes, president & COO 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. It’s changing the way people think about and eat pizza.”
Blaze Pizza has developed a fundraiser program that returns 20 percent of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations, and will be partnering with local schools, sports clubs and other organizations to host fundraising events at the new Palmdale restaurant, company officials said.
The first Blaze Pizza restaurant opened in August 2012 in Irvine. The company currently operates 98 restaurants in 23 states and Canada. The concept is backed by investors including LeBron James, Maria Shriver, Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner and movie producer John Davis. For more information, visit blazepizza.com.
