Just a forewarning: sorry for the crummy photos. This was shot at night with my phone camera. (yikes)
My friend from Texas(!) came over last Wednesday, and I ended up giving him a brief tour of the neighborhoods around my campus. After a walk around Newbury St. in the freezing weather, I brought him with me to Target to show him the Fenway area (tbh I just needed to buy contact lens solution and a loaf of bread). Since it was dinner time by the time we finished the “tour,” we stopped by Blaze Pizza on the way back to my dorm room.
The place is basically Chipotle style, where there’s a relay line of toppings which you can choose from.
There’s three options for the crust: traditional, high-rise, and gluten-free. I opted for the traditional and decided to make a custom pie.
There were so many toppings to choose from, that it was kind of overwhelming. At least for me, who is terribly indecisive. I believe there were 4 sauces to choose from, two of which are vegan (traditional red sauce and spicy red sauce). There’s also vegan cheese available (hooray!), but it looked like Daiya and I’m not a huge fan of Daiya shredded cheese. It tastes kind of sweet, no? But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity and asked for half of my pizza to be sprinkled with some of it. As for the vegetable toppings, I went for fresh basil, kalamata olives, roasted peppers, sauteed onions, roasted garlic, and roasted zucchini.
They fast-fire the whole thing, cut it into six slices, and put it in this cute box for you (if you order to-go).
Though we didn’t eat in, the seating space is clean and pretty wide with the typical trending industrial interior design.
After trekking through the cold Boston wind, we finally got back to my room and opened up our pizzaaaaaa. I tried to be kind of healthy by having leftover kale salad on the side. Are you drooling yet?
The taste was surprisingly good for a fast-food joint, and the crust was just the way I liked it: thin and slightly crispy. Of course, don’t expect a 100% authentic Italian pie, but for $8.83, this was a pretty damn good meal.
