Posted by – Shawn Keenan, City Planner

The dough is fresh, the toppings are abundant, the ovens ablaze, and the pizzasmiths have mastered their craft.  That can only mean one thing, the eagerly awaited Blaze Pizza is now open and ready to make you a customized pizza.

This new pizzeria, located at 2065 N Squirrel Road, is well-known for making pizzas with a perfect crispy crust in less than four minutes.  Yes, that’s right … in less than four minutes, which means it’s an excellent place to grab a quick bite to eat if you’re short on time.

If you haven’t been to a Blaze Pizza be prepared to make a few decisions.  You’ll first have to select what type of crust you want, thin, high-rise, or gluten-free. Next, you’ll need to choose your toppings, which includes your choice of 10 sauces, seven kinds of cheese, seven types of meat, and 17 veggies.  And get this, you can have as many toppings as you want all for one price.  Once that’s finished the pizzasmith will cook your pizza to perfection.  So there you have it, your very own customized artesian pizza made fresh and fast.

Blaze Pizza also offers salads and desserts, including s’mores cookies, and an assortment of beverages like their very own Blood Orange Lemonade which is very tasty and refreshing and always a big hit with their customers.

FYI – As a special treat, Blaze Pizza Auburn Hills will be serving free pizzas all day on Tuesday, February 27th from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Blaze Pizza Opening A “Hot” Topic

Interest in the opening date for Blaze Pizza within the Auburn Hills Marketplace continues to grow and for good reason.  This fast casual pizzeria, known for making customized artisan pizzas in four minutes or less, is sure to be a hit.

The business is currently under construction in the retail space adjacent to Starbucks.  The oven, which is the primary piece of equipment for the restaurant, has already been installed.  We’re told the dome of the oven can reach 900 degrees, but the 600 to 800-degree oven floor is the key to making the crispy crust for the pies.  The contractors are currently installing the store’s interior lighting, wall tiles, and countertops.

The heat of Blaze Pizza’s oven allows the pizzas to be ready in minutes

If all things go according to schedule, the City will make final permit inspections the week of February 19th.  Once the inspections are complete, the owner expects to open the following week.  So, we’re about one month away from their grand opening.

Blaze Pizza is sure to be a hit

Blaze Pizza To Start Construction

It’s finally official!  Blaze Pizza was just issued a Building Permit from the City of Auburn Hills to begin construction on their new restaurant in the Auburn Hills Marketplace, which is located at the northwest corner of N. Squirrel Road and University Drive.  The eatery will be located next to Starbucks Coffee.

This fast casual restaurant is known for their fresh artisan pizzas that are made to order in less than four minutes.  Each pizza is cooked in a blazing hot oven that melts the cheese to perfect gooey consistency while creating that perfect crisp crust on which your personally selected toppings sit upon.

We look forward to announcing the date of their Grand Opening that should take place sometime in early Spring 2018.
