Blaze has only been in Charlotte for about two months, but it is quickly trying to dethrone Queen Bey on the list of things we love. In the short time that it has been open, Blaze has become our go to restaurant to take visiting homies. As if phenomenal pizza wasn't enough, their homemade drinks and desserts are the perfect additions to your meal. The blood orange lemonade is RIDICULOUSLY GOOD. So good, in fact, that we usually finish a cup before our pizza even makes it out of the oven. If you have ever been to &Pizza in D.C., Blaze is very similar, but so much better (in our opinion). Blaze doesn't have the finishing oils like &Pizza but who cares? It's AMAZING. Look at the options!
Bih...so many choices.
- Build Your Own: Classic red sauce (I make sure they cover all the dough, nobody wants an ashy pizza), mozzarella (don't be stingy), chicken, applewood bacon, chopped garlic, fresh basil, red peppers, sautéed onions, sea salt and oregano.
- Build Your Own: Spicy red sauce (extra sauce. Dry pizza is criminal), shredded mozzarella (for melty, gooey goodness), ovalini mozzarella (for texture and deliciousness), applewood bacon, fresh basil, roasted garlic, roasted red peppers, sautéed onions, sea salt and oregano. I like to round the meal out with a half gallon of blood orange lemonade, and a s'more. I'm only skinny on the outside.
Vibes: Casual, fake workout attire (dad hat, leggings, running shoes, ivy park--if you will) type of spot. Take the homies, or someone that is established and has seen you in your head wrap/du-rag.
