Blaze Pizza opens 2nd branch at Riyadh Park

Blaze Pizza, the fast-casual artisanal pizza concept known for custom-built pizzas, is expanding its presence in Saudi Arabia with the opening of its second store at Riyadh Park, following the opening of its first outlet in Sidra restaurants, last year.

Since its regional launch in 2018, Blaze has quickly become a popular pizza outlet, with guests lining up each day for the custom-built pizzas, freshly made salads and blood orange lemonade. Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen format that allows guests to create their own pizza by choosing from a wide selection of fresh ingredients that would match their dietary preferences, all for one price.

Blaze Pizza restaurants make their own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically acclaimed Executive Chef Bradford Kent, which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. Once the toppings are chosen, the pizza enters the open flame oven and is ready after only 180 seconds. 

The restaurant is open from Saturday to Wednesday between 10 a.m. until midnight and on Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. until 1:00 a.m.
