Blaze Pizza to Bring Custom-made Pies to Laurel, College Park

Locations in College Park set to open this year and will be announced soon.

Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the leading fast-casual built-to-order artisanal pizza chain, today announced that it will soon be entering the Washington, D.C. area with three locations set to open over the next six months. 

The company’s first D.C. area location will be in Westfield’s Montgomery Mall in Bethesda

Additional locations in College Park, (adjacent to the University of Maryland campus) Laurel, MD (Town Center Shopping Center) are also set to open this year and will be announced soon.

Blaze Pizza uses an interactive ordering format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create one of their own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for under $8.  

The personal 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” in less than 180 seconds. 

Each restaurant makes its own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically-acclaimed Executive Chef Brad 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 restaurant will also offer house-made S’more Pies and a selection of wine and craft beer.

“I am thrilled to have this opportunity to take the years I’ve spent developing my dough recipe and now bring it to a broader audience,” says Chef Kent.  “I am really looking forward to introducing the greater D.C. area to Blaze.”
