Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the recognized world leader in fast, artisanal pizza, is letting South Florida teachers know just how much they are loved with a $5 Build-Your-Own pizza offer on Wednesday, May 9, during National Teacher Appreciation Week.
Since 1984, the National PTA has designated one week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating the nation’s children. To take advantage of the offer, teachers must show their credentials using a valid identification badge from a school, daycare, college or university, good for one Build-Your-Own pizza featuring unlimited toppings at any South Florida Blaze Pizza location that day.
All South Florida Blaze Pizza locations are participating:
• 4665 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens
Blaze Pizza supports teachers and schools year round, last year contributing more than $20,000 to South Florida organizations through spirit nights held at Blaze Pizza, where 20 percent of proceeds are donated back to schools and nonprofit organizations, and other fundraising activities. In addition, Blaze Pizza distributes thousands of free student reward certificates each year through its Fire In Your Bellyprogram, which allows teachers to reward students with a certificate good for one free pizza based on academic achievement, outstanding effort, good citizenship or other measures of excellence. To obtain the free certificates or set up a fundraiser or spirit night, please contact your local restaurant or visit www.blazepizza.com.
Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable. Fans line up each day for the custom-built pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies. Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for about $8. The generously-sized personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just 180 seconds. Restaurants make their own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically-acclaimed Executive Chef Bradford Kent (the “Pizza Whisperer”), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.
