I'm very happy that someone finally discovered that the Chipotle service delivery model works for pizza as well. You start with your choice of dough then sauce next cheeses and toppings. I recommend you do a customized build your own with unlimited toppings. You could go for the two topping option which is a lower price, but who stops at two toppings on a pizza. Vegetarians have plenty of options with vegan chorizo to start then garlic, artichoke hearts, yellow and red peppers, mushrooms, onions, oregano, sea salt, etc.

Love this place. The food is great and you can put as many toppings on your pizza as you want at no extra charge. The staff is nice.

Pizza is great, but they forgot an item. It's impossible to actually contact a human at this company that can credit us back. The number is picked up by a national service, and they can't help you. No one answers at the local restaurant.

Great little pizza joint! Family went tonight for the first time and it was wonderful! They literally make your pizza before your eyes! We sat outside and it was really nice! The pizzas were cooked perfect and tasted great ! I highly recommend!

I love Blaze! No matter the location, they always bake the pizzas to perfection. They have a variety of toppings that are fresh and flavorful. My favorite is the green strip pizza and what I love the most ana that they always let you add more toppings. Durham has a lot of pizza restaurants, but this place tops it for me. This time around, I got the pick two, half cheesy bread with basil sauce and half bbq chicken. It was so good!

By far the best pizza ever! I get their Veg-Out and the crust is the perfect crunch, the sauce is perfect - not too saucy - and there is regular or spicy, the cheese and toppings are always on point! I love their pesto cheesebread. I could eat this pizza every day and not get tired of it! I will only order pizza from Blaze!!!

This place is pretty good. Pizzas are reasonably priced for what they are, and there's lots of options for basically endless combinations. Customer service is subpar but that's not what I'm reviewing, just a heads up. I will be back at some point, but this place is more of a fun experiment than a quality pizza. You can get better pizzas in the area but there is some fun here with more untraditional options.

My daughters and I ordered Take Twos, so we each could have the type pizza we wanted and either salad or garlic knots. The food was good and the price was reasonable. We'll be back.

This location has 4 or 5 outdoor tables so it is one of our go-tos during warmer weather. My only complaint is that out of the four pizzas we generally get, one of them is usually too burnt in sections to eat all of it. Fix those issues with consistency and this location will deserve a higher rating. A side benefit of this location is that there are two other similar cost/speed restaurants (mexican and hamburgers) within 100 yards and dessert right around the corner. If you have picky eaters it absolutely feasible to grab food from different places; we do it often.

Stopped at a Blaze for the first time today.For fast casual this is really quite good. Among the best.

I don't know how the food is here because even though it is posted nowhere in the store this establishment will not accept any denomination of cash over a $20 bill to pay for their product. The food looks really good and healthy but I never got to taste it so I guess I will never know for sure. Go ahead and give this business a try just don't try to pay for your order with anything larger than a $20 US. They have a tip jar on the counter - I have a strong suspicion that they would accept something bigger than a $20 in their tip jar.

What a great pizza place. I love brix pizza and this is a faster and equally tastey version of wood fired pizza. You can customize your pizza any way, perfect size for one person, ingredients always seem fresh and have always been satisfied with the taste. Price is good and sometimes service can be a tad slow, but I don't actually think it's that bad of a thing because it usually because it's busy! Still way faster than a sit down restaurant.

The price is worth every penny with what you get. The customer service is always good too! I was amazed that you can get a personal pan with pizza with unlimited toppings. Plus they offer gluten free and vegan pizza dough!

The pizza is good, but the service is lacking. Staff don't seem to care! Wish there was another location nearby! Definitely wouldn't return here if given an alternative. The pizza keeps me coming back.

Blaze Pizza has always been delicious and today's visit didn't change my mind about them. I order the pizza with all the meats and cheeses and a few vegetables and it's fresh, flavorful, and it's delicious. I definitely appreciate it.

Absolutely the BEST pizza. I'm an all plant-based eater and they have loads of ingredients that I can add as many ingredients as I want with no extra cost. Price and food is definitely worth it!👍🏾👍🏾

Great service.. even when it was busy.. staff worked well together and kept a nice flow for halloween festivities! Jada was wonderful and calm under pressure! The gentleman setting orders up was friendly and attentive. The oven guru she was wonderful, friendly and closed the tasty deal. Always satisfied with this place!🎃🏉

Blaze Pizza is by far my favorite pizza joint. The level of customizability is absolutely amazing with a "Build Your Own" pizza. And better yet, it's for a totally reasonable price, no matter the toppings. There are also vegan options, such as vegan cheese, lots of vegetables, and all crusts are vegan. The food comes out relatively quickly and tastes simply delicious. It is a very good size of pizza that is quite filling. I highly recommend this place for any sort of meal. The staff is also quite nice, but the highlight is definitely the pizza itself.

Brought the family here after Black Friday Shopping. We all got what we wanted. The staff was super friendly and helpful and every pizza was delicious. I tried the Keto Crust and it was amazing!!! It's a total game changer!!! It tasted much better than the original gf crust, but it is $4.00 extra. The toppings and sauces tasted fresh and the staff can really make just the best pizza!!

Like not love... I am a pizza guy. To me this was just another pizza. The portion was great. I liked the presentation and the pizza looked great. It tasted...well kind of bland. It really had little flavor to speak of. Seemed like maybe the oven stone had too much char, because one flavor I did get was burnt dough. The pepperoni was sliced super thin so its flavor didn't shine through either. There was a good selection of drinks, and some great cane sugar root beer. The black cherry was out, but I bet that is good too. I left full, and would go back again.

I tried Blaze Pizza today for the first time. I was surprised by the selections there. Fresh salads, build your own pizza or one of the many already on the menu. The crust is made on site, regular, gluten free, vegan or even cauliflower! The staff was great and food had great flavor. I will most definitely head to the local Blaze that just opened in my area. Enjoy!!!

Absolutely love Blaze. The pizzas are delicious and you get to customize them to your liking. And the size is just right for sharing or taking half home for leftovers. Really like their dedication to the environment. No straws and as much recyclable stuff as possible. Service has always been excellent.

Interesting approach for a pizza lunch. Feels like a Chipotle process applied to getting pizza out quickly and hot. Plenty of choices ensuring you can make your lunch just the way you want it. Blaze Pizza also has several suggested pizzas to choose from if you would like. Over all it was a delicious option that performed quickly. I recommend you give it a try.

Great pizza. Way too slow. Took 45 minutes to get up to the counter to place my order. There were only 8 people in front of me. Assembly line pizza makers could learn a little from Domino's Pizza makers.

Blaze pizza on 15-501 in Durham is awesome. Friendly staff...good concept of one size pizza and set prices for build your own or specialty. Great pizza. Will return.

Good pizza! The personal size is a perfect size. I didn't get too full. And they have some creative soft drinks to choose from. I suggest the black cherry!

Been at least a dozen times. As of the last time I went they had 3 gluten free crust options (which is unheard of!) but the original gluten free crust is still my favorite.

Delicious pizza. Get the toppings you want with no extra charge. Delicious gluten free. They will ask if you have a gluten allergy and clean the our off if you so. Yummy!

I enjoy the create your own pizza option because I can try new combinations of ingredients. Tonight I had the thicker crust with the white sauce, mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, pepperoni, black olives, roasted red peppers, and mushrooms. My friend also built their own, and we shared an order of the pesto dough knots, which are so good with the marinara dipping sauce. I always come home with the leftovers, so it's a good deal at about $6 for dinner for two nights. I've been several times and the quality of the food has been consistent. I saw several families with toddlers there dining in, plus lots of people getting to go orders. It's fast and good, and the price doesn't break the bank. If you want a change from the well-known chains, give them a try.

Maybe I didnt see it but I wish their was options for bigger pizzas and not just a personal size. Other then that it was a good experience. The workers were helpful and patient with me since it was my 1st time there

Pretty good pizza for being "fast food". The basic pizza is Roman style with a thin, crispy crust. You can just walk down the counter and have it built to order. It gets cooked in 2-3 minutes. There aren't any unusual or unique toppings, but you can still make something you like. The available side salads are pretty poor- 2 star at best. Skip these.

I've eaten here a handful of times now. The staff is very friendly even when there's a crowd. I love the Simple Pie the best, but also love the BYO. Pricing is reasonable. The flavor of the pizza is outstanding. The roasted garlic is truly roasted. So many topping choices that I'll be eating my way through the menu for awhile.

I know it's a chain, but it is a small chain. They have 3 types of crust, regular, and gluten free, garlic knots, and several fresh salads. Not many preset pizza choices, but a very good selection of toppings to make your own decisions. They also have 4 of their own juices, which is always a plus in my book. The pizza is brick fired, and quite good. I would recommend, except on date nights, then it is very VERY crowded, but it'll be worth it.

Might be my favorite pizza place in town. The build-your-own pizza is great value for money AND it's good pizza! Perfect, proper crisp. My favorite combo is pesto sauce, mozzarella, grilled chicken and turkey sausage, mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, (might be forgetting something else), sea salt and oregano. Top it off with extra pesto drizzle, because why not??

I like this place...options are great and ingredients look and taste fresh. Try their recommends or go nuts making your own. Their boutique soda offerings at the dispenser are yummy...give them a try

Pizza is always exceptional! The wood fired oven prep makes the crust crispy and flavors so good! They are putting less toppings on the pizza now. I suppose that's a sign of the times...
