Reader Primetime says that Blaze Pizza has opened at 3925 State Street, in the former home of Carl’s Jr. at the Five Points Shopping Center. This is the second South Coast location for Blaze which opened at 6546 Pardall Road in Isla Vista in March 2014.
Primetime says Blaze is having a Grand Opening today, Friday December 16th, and giving out free pizza to followers on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. I’m not exactly sure how the mechanics of that free offer works.
Blaze Pizza uses an interactive assembly line format that allows guests to create their own custom-built artisanal pizzas at high speed. Each pizza starts with a 11-inch crust that is pressed fresh from a dough ball. Then guests travel down the assembly line to “co-create” a signature pizza or design one of their own — choosing from a wide variety of house-made sauces and 40 fresh toppings. To finish, each guest’s custom-built pizza is fast-fired in an oven and ready in three minutes. Blaze is open Sunday-Thursday 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 11 a.m.-midnight.
