Opening Day Blaze Pizza in San Clemente


Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the LeBron James-backed fast-casual artisanal pizza concept, is opening a new location at the Outlets in San Clemente on Thursday, May 5. To celebrate the grand opening, the restaurant will offer FREE build-your-own artisanal pizzas on Friday, May 6 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. to anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.

At Blaze Pizza you can customize order one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create your own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for about $8. The generously-sized personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven –and ready to eat in just 180 seconds.  At each Blaze Pizza, dough is made from scratch using a recipe developed by executive chef Bradford Kent, which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. 

Almost all of the pizza and salad ingredients are free of artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and fillers and for pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.  The new San Clemente restaurant will also feature a selection of wine and craft beer.

The restaurant is located at the Outlets at San Clemente at 225 W. Avenida Vista Hermosa.
