What's better than pizza? Free pizza, of course

Posted by on Wed, Dec 17, 2014 at 3:18 PM


Some folks know how to make an entrance. Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza apparently belongs in that group. The build-your-own pizza chain has a grand opening Thursday in Morrisville’s Park West Village. Then, between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday, Blaze will give away free pizza to anyone who follows them on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Repeat, they open on Thursday but the giveaway is on Friday. 

This will be the first Blaze in North Carolina. It has locations in such places as Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and, now, Morrisville. (And suddenly I can’t get Sesame Street’s “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other” out of my head. Thanks, Blaze.) The chain now has 70-plus restaurants and a list of investors that includes Lebron James, Maria Shriver and Tom Werner (co-owner of the Boston Red Sox).

Each Blaze is set up with an assembly line of sorts (similar to a Chipotle, Moe’s or Subway) that allows you to go through and either customize one of its signature pizzas or create your own by choosing from seven meats, 15 veggies, seven cheeses and six sauces/drizzles. Then the pizza gets sent to an open-flame oven that is the restaurant’s centerpiece and, in 180 seconds, your thin-crust pie is “fast-fire’d” and ready to eat. Yes, 180 seconds.

Each restaurant uses dough made from scratch with a recipe that involves a 24-hour fermentation period. They also offer options such as gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.

Beverage choices will include wine and craft beers.

"Incredibly racist" strikes me as a bit harsh (not to mention a bit simplistic)

Sure. It's because it refers to a well-known racist stereotype.
