Blaze Pizza provided me with a product in return for this post. However, as always all opinions expressed are my own. Pinky Promise!
If you’re like me you might have noticed the Blaze Pizza sign that popped up in the Shelbyville road plaza near Trader Joes and Nordstrom Rack. Well Im excited to tel you guys that a brand new pizza place has come to Louisville and its Grand Opening on Monday June 9!
To celebrate their newes location of Blaze Pizza they will be having a Free Pizza Day! This event will allow anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook to build-your-own artisanal pizza between 11 am and 10pm.
About the pizzas
Blaze Pizza uses an interactive ordering format that allows guest to create their own custom artisanal pizzas at lightening speed- each for under $8 (WOW!). The generously sized personalizes are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame over where dedicated pizza smiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are “fast-fire’d”in less than 180 seconds. Each restaurant makes their pizza dough from scratch using a recipe developed by a critically -acclaimed Executive Chef Brad Kent, which requires a 24 hour fermentation period to produce his signature light as air, crisp crust. The restaurant also accommodates a range of dierarty needs with a gluten free dough and vegan cheese option. They also offer a selection of wine and craft beer.
