Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, the fast-casual concept known for its chef-driven menu and casually hip restaurants, today announced that it will soon open a new location in Eastvale. The highly anticipated opening is the second Riverside County location for Blaze Pizza, which debuted at Riverside Plaza Shopping Center (3540 Riverside Plaza Dr.) in June 2014. The new Blaze Pizza restaurant, which features a 2,600 square foot space with seating for 50 inside and an additional 40 seats on an outdoor patio, will open in September in Eastvale Gateway Shopping Center (12523 E. Limonite Ave.).
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. The Eastvale restaurant will also feature a selection of wine and craft beer.
