Busy days mean fast lunches, and Blaze Pizza’s pies are “Fast-Fire’d”, so you won’t be
taking a long lunch break! We had heard great things about Blaze, both the Village at Sandhill and Harbison locations, and decided to try it for ourselves. Here’s how it works: Pick one of Blaze’s Signature Pizzas, or Build-Your-Own artisanal pizza with their incredible selection of high quality toppings, then their Pizzasmiths go to work, heating it up for you in a massive, wood burning pizza oven for 180 seconds flat! This gives the pizza a crisp crust, the cheese and toppings a good flavor-melding. We tried the Meat Eater, the Red Vine, and a Build Your Own, and were not disappointed! The pizzas are the perfect size for one person, and you don’t feel full of dough at the end. That’s because it’s made from scratch in-house daily, with no additives or chemicals.
They offer gluten-free crust as well as vegan cheese options, and don’t forget about their colorful Simple Salads! They’re available in both Side and Entree sizes, and are full of healthily-delicious fixings like wild baby arugula, kale, dried cranberries, goat cheese, seasonal fruit and more, and can even be added atop a warm garlic pesto and parmesan crust, to make a Salad Pizza if you prefer!
In addition to soft drinks, lemonade, blood-orange lemonade, draft beer or wine, Blaze offers fruit-infused, all-natural Agua Fresca beverages. Both the Strawberry and Mango we tried were wonderful. Desserts include S’more Pie, Sea Salt Cookie, and Olive Oil Brownie, all of which, you’ll be thrilled to know, can be heated in the oven for a warm after-pizza treat!

As of July 14, Casual Pint-Lexington’s “Beer-tenders” are ready to help you with craft beer by the pint, from the tap wall, by the can or by the bottle.
