'Blaze' brings 'fast-fired' pizza to the South Loop

If salads are what you're after, look no further than this new business. The fresh addition to the Loop, called Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza, is located at 511 State St. (between Harrison St & Congress Pky).

This newcomer--which has locations throughout the United States and several coming to the Middle East--specializes in pizzas with house-made dough topped with artisan ingredients, according to the business' website.

On the menu, look for signature pies like the "Art Lover" with artichokes, mozzarella and ricotta; the "Link In" with Italian sausage, roasted red peppers and sauteed onions; and barbecued grilled chicken with red onion and banana peppers.

There's a build-your-own component to the menu as well, where customers can customize pizzas and choose from an array of toppings on offer.

Rounding things out is a selection of salads and desserts like a s'more pie and sea salt cookies. (You can check out the full menu here.)

With two reviews on Yelp thus far, Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza currently has a 4.5-star rating.

Deborah W., who was the first Yelper to review the new spot on March 2nd, said: "I'm so glad this opened by my house! Custom-made pizza with the best and freshest ingredients...it is now my favorite place in the Sloop!"
