This is a sponsored post. Although I received compensation, my opinions about Blaze Pizza are entirely my own! If you were on a deserted island and could only have one food item, what would it be? Mine would be pizza.
You can have so many choices with pizza, even if you ate it the rest of your life, you would never get bored, right? My family is right there with me! We try to eat pizza at least once a week, if not more.
Recently, we discovered a new pizza place in Knoxville and it is our new favorite place to eat. When you eat at Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, it does a belly good ya’ll! From the moment we walked into Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza on N. Peters Drive, we were enthusiastically greeted by their friendly staff.
At our Knoxville location, Torie Ciroula is the GM. During our first visit, Torie was backed up by some of the greatest staff! Amanda, Trevor, Jake, Alex and Dylan were so nice! You could genuinely tell they enjoyed their jobs and worked like a well oiled machine!
In my opinion, this is a huge factor on if my family will come back to a restaurant. If the staff is this infectiously fun, we are certain to come back again and again!
At Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, they make custom 11-inch personal pizzas with made-from-scratch dough. They offer a ton of artisanal ingredients on their assembly line, so you can order from the menu or you can build your own fresh, custom made pizza (they even have gluten free crust!) just about any way you like!
Once you choose your sauce (red, garlic pesto or white) and cheese (mozzarella, ricotta, Gorgonzola, Parmesan, and even vegan) you get to choose your toppings.
Oh and the toppings! You can choose from applewood bacon, grilled chicken, artichokes, cherry tomatoes, red onion, crumbled meatballs and so many more!
I stuck with the vegetarian while the rest of my family went full on carnivore with a bit of veggie thrown in for good measure! Once you have all your toppings on the pizza, your pie is placed in their blazing hot oven for 180 seconds.
There, your pizza is fast-fire’d to crisp perfection. You can also choose a ready-made salad from their cooler like Chicken or Classic Caesar, Antipasto, Beet and Goat Cheese and more.
As far as beverages go, you can choose from several bottled drinks or their fizzy fountain drink, which we all chose.
The interior of Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza is very cool! It is comfortable and trendy without being pretentious. As many of you know, my son Henry has autism. It can be super difficult to find restaurants he is comfortable in.
I cannot tell you how many places we have entered and just as quickly, have left because the atmosphere was too much for Henry to handle. At Blaze Pizza, he felt perfectly content, which was a huge plus for us.
So, I am sure you are waiting for the all important verdict…how good is the pizza from Blaze? Oh.Em.Gee you guys! This is seriously one of the best pizzas I have EVER had.
And trust me, I have had a lot of pizza in my time. The sauce is the perfect balance of tomatoes and herbs, the cheeses are high quality and the toppings are some of the best around.
The crust comes out so crispy. But not too crispy, you know? It is just perfect! And I strongly suggest you order the S’More Pie, which is also baked in that hot oven. Caitlin could not stop talking about how good it was!
Still not sure how good the pizza from Blaze is? We have now started a new family tradition where we have a late lunch and see a matinee every Sunday. Where do we eat? Blaze Pizza of course! Now because Blaze is a fairly new concept, they may not be in your area yet.
They have several spots across the country and new franchises are popping up on a regular basis. Check here to see if there is a Blaze Pizza near you or if there is one on the way.

I love spinach, garlic, Mozzarella and artichokes on my pizza. What are your favorite pizza toppings?

That sounds like amazing pizza. I’ve always been a big fan of rustic pizza like that. It’s got such a great flavor.
Tara saysJuly 22, 2016 at 4:01 pm
I am drooling here. Look at all those toppings. I love a Hawaiian flair to my pizza.
Brandy saysJuly 22, 2016 at 4:04 pm
Pizza is always a hit at my house. I love all the different options for a custom made pizza, there’s so many possibilities!
Felissa saysJuly 22, 2016 at 6:48 pm
I am obsessed with that S’More Pie! It looks so amazing!
Brenda saysJuly 22, 2016 at 8:15 pm
Pizza is a family favorite at my house. This looks like an awesome place to eat. If I’m ever in Knoxville I will definitely check it out.
Kathy saysJuly 22, 2016 at 10:08 pm
I have never heard of this place before. I hope they have one near me. I love pizza! I would love to try one of theirs too!
Jackie saysJuly 22, 2016 at 10:50 pm
I’ve never been to Blaze, but there is one by my daughter’s school and she loves to go there with her friends. Maybe it’s time I go with her….that pizza looks delicious!

We love to eat Pizza. Blaze Pizza looks so delicious. I will have to see if there is a location close to us so I can give it a try.
Ann Bacciaglia saysJuly 22, 2016 at 11:49 pm
I am excited to try Blaze Pizza. It looks so yummy I wish I could have some right now.
Maggie branch saysJuly 23, 2016 at 6:42 am
Oh my gosh! The s’mores pie is everything! I absolutely need this in my life! We just might have to take a trick to Knoxville.
Kristen Dann saysJuly 23, 2016 at 8:54 am
We don’t have one of these around us but man does it look tasty! I agree that you could never get bored with the endless options you can add to your pizzas.

Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza sounds like a new fun concept in pizza. I am alwyas up to try a new preparation.
R U S S saysJuly 23, 2016 at 7:38 pm
Blaze reminds of a pizza chain here in my country with a similar concept – Project Pie. I love how you described Blaze’s pizza as crunchy but just the right kind of crunchy. I’d ome here for a quick meal 🙂
Nancy L. saysJuly 23, 2016 at 8:01 pm
Wow! The toppings look so fresh! I love the toppings you got on your pizza. I’ve never tried artichokes on my pizza, but heck, I’d give a try! Sounds yummy and healthy! 🙂
Christy Garrett saysJuly 23, 2016 at 11:10 pm
This pizza sounds delicious. I haven’t had brick oven pizza in a while. I don’t have a Blaze nearby.
Inspiring Kitchen saysJuly 24, 2016 at 11:52 am
My oh my, the pizza looks so good! There is a place here with a similar concept.
Autumn Reo saysJuly 24, 2016 at 6:21 pm
We’re obsessed with our Blaze! The Blood Orange lemonade is so good and the gluten free pizza is out of sight! And I love the cabrese salad.
The Cubicle Chick saysJuly 25, 2016 at 12:22 am
Their pizza looks good. I’ll have to check them out the next time I’m in Knoxville. Thanks for sharing. – Yolonda
William Sweeney saysJuly 25, 2016 at 12:25 am
What a great place to grab pizza!!! I know my wife would be all over the gluten free pizza crust, she can’t have gluten so it’s hard sometimes to find places to eat.
Stephanie saysJuly 25, 2016 at 2:48 am
This definitely looks like a place I’d enjoy. And, my kids would devour the smores pie. Yum!
Kristine Foley saysJuly 25, 2016 at 3:05 am
I had their pizza for the first time a couple years ago, and nothing compares! SO good! Love that the customer is able to make up their own to really customize the experience! BBQ chicken for me for the win! YUM!
Lynndee saysJuly 25, 2016 at 12:23 pm
We are pizza lovers over here. Wish we have Blaze here in the city too. But Knoxville is not far away anyway. 🙂
Katherine G saysJuly 25, 2016 at 4:24 pm
I love pizza! I would so totally eat here. Especially with the welcoming service that you wrote about.
Jennifer saysJuly 25, 2016 at 5:51 pm
I love cool pizza joints like this. Definitely will have to look this place up if I visit that area.
Tiffany Hathorn saysJuly 27, 2016 at 4:44 pm
The pizza looks delicious, but I want that s’more pie!
MAGGIE BRANCH saysJuly 31, 2016 at 9:08 pm
I love visiting unique local, non chain, pizza places! Growing up in NJ I think it might be that I was spoiled with awesome pizza and I am now always searching for the next best pie. This place looks great and if I am ever in the area will certainly be visiting!

We have one coming about 70 miles away soon. We will go to try it. I have always wanted to a pizza house like this one.
