Blaze Pizza May Be Coming to the Boston Area
A small group of California-based pizza restaurants known for cooking pizzas quickly at high temperatures is planning to come to Boston--and one of its investors is a well-known figure in the local area.
The Boston Herald is reporting that Blaze Pizza is looking to expand nationally, with the Boston area being a part of their expansion plans. One of its investors is Tom Werner, who is Chairman of the Boston Red Sox and is also involved with such local restaurants as Empire, Gem, the Red Lantern, and Towne.
Blaze Pizza, which is based in Pasadena and has locations in Pasadena and Irvine (with two more Los Angeles-area shops in the works), makes their scratch-made artisanal pizzas on an "assembly line," with the pies then put into a white-hot oven, taking less than two minutes to cook.
