Rick and Elise Wetzel founded Blaze Pizza in Pasadena, California in 2011. The first Blaze Pizza restaurant was opened in Irvine, California in August 2012 followed by their second – and flagship – location in Pasadena, California in October 2012.
Since its founding, Blaze Pizza has attracted the attention of industry publications and investors including LeBron James. Zagat, for example, noted in 2014 that Blaze Pizza is among the “10 innovative restaurants around Los Angeles” thanks partly to the chain’s attention to detail, especially in its food, design and customer service.
What They’re Famous For
Blaze Pizza’s name refers to the high temperatures in which the pizzas are cooked. Every pizza is cooked in a high-temperature open-flame oven for 3 minutes, on average.
The especially-designed ovens are also used in roasting chicken, baking many of the desserts, and cooking the Italian meatballs and sausages. But each dish retains its desired texture, flavor and appearance despite the common use of the ovens.
Why Eat Here
Blaze Pizza offers eight Signature Pizzas as well as their Build-Your-Own pizzas.
The Signature Pizzas are arguably more popular because these are chef-driven pizzas, after all, and there’s something good to be said about trusting the chefs. These include BBQ Chicken (chicken, mozzarella, red onion, banana peppers, and gorgonzola with BBQ sauce drizzle), Meat Eater (pepperoni, meatballs, red onion, and mozzarella with red sauce), and Hot Link (, jalapeño, sausage, black olive, red onion, banana pepper, and mozzarella with spicy red sauce).
The Build-Your-Own pizzas are available for a single price. Customers choose from several types of dough, toppings including meats and vegetables, and cheeses as well as sauces – these are customized pizzas – and then have these baked for 3 minutes. These pizzas are priced at a single price so there’s no need to be adding numbers in your head.
Like the chain restaurant to which it’s being compared, Blaze Pizza uses the assembly line method in offering customized pizzas. But Blaze Pizza management asserts that it isn’t your usual assembly line in that only the best ingredients are used. Indeed, Blaze Pizza may not have invented the pizza assembly line but it differentiates itself through the quality of its ingredients and their delectable presentation.
Start by choosing your dough and there are four different types of dough, all of which are fermented for 24 hours; each restaurant makes its own dough according to company standards. The choices are original dough, high rise dough, keto crust, and cauliflower crust; the first two are vegan and the latter two are gluten-free.
Then, move on to the sauce with the choices being classic red sauce, white cream sauce, spicy red sauce, and garlic pesto sauce. Each one of these sauces are savory so you can’t go wrong whatever one you choose.
The toppings are mouth-watering, if not overwhelming at first glance because there are just so many of them. The cheeses have been chosen for their specific qualities, from creamy to tangy, and include feta, gorgonzola, goat, parmesan, ovalini mozzarella, shredded mozzarella, ricotta, and vegan cheese.
The meats are made in-house to ensure high quality and these include applewood-smoked bacon, Italian meatballs, grilled chicken, salami, smoked ham, pepperonu, and vegan spicy chorizo. The veggies and fruits add the healthy component with the diverse selection including banana peppers, artichokes, cherry tomatoes, black olives, red onions, oregano, spinach, red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, jalapenos, kalamata olives, and fresh basil, among others.
What’s a pizza without a finishing touch? At Blaze Pizza, your customized pizzas can be finished with one or more of these finishes: arugula, BBQ drizzle, balsamic glaze, buffalo sauce, olive oil, pesto, and ranch dressing.
While you may be tempted to pile high every pizza topping that catches your attention, you shouldn’t! When it comes to pizza, less is more because you want each ingredient to complement the others, not clash with each other.
Beyond pizzas, Blaze Pizza also offers several salads and desserts. The salads are limited in terms of quantity but their quality is at par with the pizzas; choices include Classic Caesar, Tomato and Mozzarella, and Arugula and Fresh Fruit. The desserts include s’more pies sea salt cookie, and olive oil brownie while the drinks are soda, tea, lemonade, and beer and wine (where the jurisdiction allows an alcohol permit).
