Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza fires up new ovens this week in Fort Worth and The Colony as the Irvine, Calif.-based company expands area pizza options.
Both locations open Thursday July 7 at the Waterside development, 5925 Corvair Drive in Fort Worth, and at 5050 State Highway in The Colony.
To celebrate the openings, both restaurants will offer free build-your-own pizzas on Friday July 8 in Fort Worth and Saturday July 9 in The Colony from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. to anyone following the company on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat. Diners can expect live music by Lone Star Bottle Band.
Blaze specializes in 11-inch pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies. Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen format allowing customers to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own. All pizzas cost less than $8 and are cooked in a open-flame oven for 180 seconds.
Each location makes its own pizza dough from scratch daily using a recipe developed by Executive Chef Bradford Kent, known as the “The Pizza Whisperer.” Diners with specific dietary needs can sample pies made with gluten-free dough and vegan cheese. Both Fort Worth and The Colony locations also offer local craft beers from Community Beer Co. and (512) Brewing Company on tap.
Blaze said it is committed to giving back to local schools, clubs, nonprofits and community organizations by hosting fundraisers, donating 20 percent of an event’s proceeds back to local groups. To celebrate its grand opening, Blaze will host the following fundraisers on Thursday July 7:
• Blaze Pizza Fort Worth and Arlington will host an all-day fundraiser for Cook Children’s Medical Center, a member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The fundraisers last from 10:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. for anyone who shows this promotional flyer to the cashier: http://saddlesblazin.com/fundraising/cookchildrens.jpg.
• Blaze Pizza The Colony will raise money all day on July 7 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital from 10:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. for anyone who shows the promotional flyer available through this link: http://saddlesblazin.com/fundraising/stjude.jpg.
“We are grateful for the generosity of Blaze Pizza in making a difference in the lives of our patient families,” said Grant Harris, vice president of Cook Children’s Health Foundation, commenting in a news release.
The two new Dallas-Fort Worth locations brings Blaze’ Texas tally to eight restaurants. Blaze debuted in the Lone Star State by opening a Frisco location in May 2015, with Arlington welcoming its own store earlier this year at 841 E. Lamar Blvd.
