Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza Announces Grand Opening of Glendale, WI RestaurantBlaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, the nation’s leading build-your-own pizza chain, today announced that it will open its second Wisconsin location, in Bayshore Town Center, on Thursday, October 2nd. To celebrate the grand opening, the Glendale location will offer FREE build-your-own artisanal pizzas on Friday, October 3 between 11:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. to anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. The fast-casual concept, known for its chef-driven menu and casually hip restaurants, is located in Bayshore Town Center (5734 North Bayshore Drive, Glendale), across from Boston Store.

Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” known for its custom-built artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies. Each restaurant features an interactive assembly-line format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for under $8. The generously-sized 11-inch pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just 180 seconds. Each restaurant makes its own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically-acclaimed Executive Chef Bradford Kent (“The Pizza Whisperer”), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.

Now there is. We believe this will be a game-changer in town.”
