Perfect place for a slice


Blaze pizza creating a welcoming atmosphere to kick back and enjoy some quality food

By walking into Blaze Pizza on Theatre Dr, you are stepping into every food lover’s paradise. The industrial building is filled with the scent of pizza, dough and sauce, and by friendly faces and a great atmosphere. Waiting in line does not take very long and before you know it you are ordering your pizza.

As we stepped up to the counter to order our pizzas, we asked the staff working there what the top two signature pizzas were that were ordered the most. Our question was answered, the BBQ Chicken (grilled chicken, mozzarella, red onion, banana peppers, gorgonzola, bbq sauce drizzle) and the Meat Eater (pepperoni, crumbled meatballs, red onion, mozzarella, red sauce), which we gladly ordered. Besides their 9 signatures pizzas, Blaze offers a ‘Build Your Own’ option that is the highlight of their name. This includes a variety of meats, veggies, cheeses, and sauces. They also offer salads and desserts with the option of gluten free crust and high rise crust.

While waiting for our pizzas to be cooked, we were delighted to see how fast and efficient the pizzas were made. As you walk past the salad and pizza topping display you can see your pizza being artistically made and put into their open ovens. Five minutes was all that it took for both pizzas to cook thoroughly.

The thin crust pizza was delicious in the fact that it was thin, but did not lose its flavor of the dough. When you took a bite of it, you could feel the crunch that contrasted with the tomato sauce and slightly browned toppings.

The meat eater was our favorite, with the different flavors of meat topped off with a sprinkling of oregano and salt, the pizza came together flawlessly. Even so, the BBQ was a close second. With the tasteful combination of chicken, banana peppers, and the bold but right choice of blue cheese, the artful swirl of bbq sauce on top made for a fantastic lunch for two.

The service was something to brag about, as one of the workers came over multiple times to check to make sure we were thoroughly satisfied with our food.

We were also very impressed by the message of blaze pizza. “[our] Keepin’ It Real is a food philosophy we embrace fully, and with every pizza we serve, we advance our commitment to clean food and simple ingredients” As said on We also loved how the materials like boxes, forks, knives and cups were made from recyclable and compostable materials in order to reduce harmful waste and help the planet.

Established on nov. 16 in Paso Robles, the successful chain pizzeria business which started in Pasadena, California in 2011 by Elise and Rick Wetzel. The restaurant quickly grew into a nationwide chain phenomenon with 252 restaurants across the country and it’s still growing.

After going to blaze for the first time, we would highly suggest going there again. From the friendly servers and the “keeping it real” sign on the wall, the atmosphere was perfect for a good couple of slices and enjoying time with your loved one. Would definitely go again.
