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.

    I asked about how to get free pizza on their Facebook page, their response: ” Hi Christine! Just stop by our new Santa Barbara location today, show our team members that you’re following us on social media, and get ready for some delicious pizza!

    I was going to go there Friday for the free pizza, but there was a huge line in front of the restaurant, and I didn’t want to wait that long. I remember seeing pictures from the Isla Vista opening day, and it was a similar situation (probably worse).
    I’ll try it soon though when there’s not a long wait.

    I tried it and liked it very much! Very nice operation, super fast and super clean. The food items looked very fresh. I think they will do well in this location where Carl’s used to be.
