My family and I don’t eat out very often. I really like to cook our meals at home for diet and budget reasons. And my husband’s work hours mean that if we had to wait for him to get home and then go out to dinner, we would eat way late. Like, I’d be extra cranky kind of late. But sometimes my boys and I just want to get out of the house. And I’m finding the more I try to watch what I eat, the more I want to eat pizza. One of our favorite places to get pizza is Blaze Pizza in Irvine.
It’s sort of a chose-your-own-adventure in pizza making and you can hand-pick what you want to have on your pizza. This works perfect for my family since we all like something different. I prefer a BBQ chicken or something similar. My husband likes the meats and usually any vegetable I don’t like. And my kids would never be able to finish one of these pizzas by themselves so it’s super awesome that Blaze will do half one type of pizza and half a totally different kind so they can split one.
I’m in love with the branding and design of the restaurants. The industrial look of the restaurants are still warm and inviting while be totally cool. And the orange is one of my favorite colors so…While I’m partial to the iced tea, my kids are totally in to the lemonade.
I’ve tried several of the several of the Signature Pizzas (I adore you White Top) as well as created my own and they have all been absolutely scrumptious. There is something about the crust that I just love. It has a wonderful crunch while being tender and just the right thickness. Mmmm, I wish they delivered… And if you have food allergies, they have a great, easy to use chart on their site to make your choices a little bit safer.
Blaze is set to open several more Orange County locations to add to the 3 already open in Mission Viejo, Irvine and La Habra. These restaurants are super kid friendly but I’d totally stop here for a casual date night as well. I’m a total dessert girl and that is the only thing that I think the restaurant could try to improve. They do have a S’more Pie but when I go out to eat I want the dessert to wow me. Full disclosure, I have actually not tried the S’more pie yet. Looks like I’ll have to take another trip to Blaze to give it a try. ;)

*Blaze Pizza invited my family and I to try out one of their restaurants and provided us with dinner. All opinions are mine. And chances are if someone gives me pizza, it’s going to make me happy. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep me full of pizza.
