On June 27th, we were invited to check out Blaze Pizza and sample their menu at their new location in La Habra at Westridge Plaza. Their pizzas are personal sized, made to order, thin crusted, and “fast-fired”. We’re talking about FAST pizzas baked in 180 seconds. That’s FAST!
Blaze Pizza makes their own dough from scratch using a recipe by Executive Chef Brad Kent (“The Pizza Whisperer”) which requires 24-hour fermentation to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. You might also like that they offer GF dough and vegan cheese for an additional fee. Each pizzas are 11″.
Since this is a fairly new way of ordering fast pizzas, you’ll want to decide whether to build your own pizza or to choose one of their signature pizzas.
Your order is then passed along to the next team member to add sauce and toppings.
After you select all your toppings, they bake inside the oven in less than 180 seconds, then they add the final touches before you take them back to your table. That’s it!
Mary’s Pick: Their Green Stripe pizza from their Signature menu had pesto drizzled over chicken, red peppers, mozzarella, and arugula. TASTY! We liked that the crust is light and airy.
Darren’s Pick: Their BBQ Chicken also from their Signature menu had chicken, mozzarella, red onions, banana peppers, gorgonzola, and drizzled bbq sauce.
Tho’s Pick: Their Meat Eater pizza also from their Signature menu had pepperoni, meatballs, red onions, mozzarella, and a red sauce.
Leyna’s Pick: She custom built her own pizza with chicken, arugula, garlic cloves, mozzarella, and a white sauce.
There were lots of seating room in the dining area. There is also outdoor seating.
Note: To reduce waste, they do not have plates, however, we improvised so we could share.
Disclosure: We received free pizza coupons to sample their menu for reviewing purposes. All opinions are our own. Your experience may vary. All images are by LetsPlayOC.com.
