On December 3, 2014, Blaze Pizza opened a new location in Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA with their celebrated grand opening “Free Pizza” Day. This location is conveniently located between Lemonade and Blue C Sushi on the upper level near Island Cinema. This is a win-win for everyone. Blaze Pizza employees get intense training, customers get free pizza, and the social buzz is just crazy!
The interesting difference between this location and others in Orange County is a window into the dough room. After the crust has proofed, employees scrape the side of the container, flip the dough onto the counter surface, perfectly portion the dough for individual pizzas, and roll them into a ball for the press. It’s a form of “eatertainment” while you are waiting in line.
Order a White Top (white cream sauce with mozzarella, Applewood bacon, chopped garlic, oregano, and arugula) as a base. Add all of the cheeses, bacon, and roasted garlic. The creamy cheeses work well with the salty bacon. The roasted garlic adds a slight sweetness and the arugula adds a bitter greenness for a perfectly balanced pizza. Rating: 5/5
Whether you are shopping or heading to the movies, Blaze Pizza Fashion Island is quick and onolicious!
