Stopped by at random - decided we wanted pizza, and didn't know if this Robinson Twp mall had a pizza shop.

It was a little intimidating when you first enter - it is one of those "you choose everything you want" places, similar to what Subway is for sandwiches. However the first employee you encounter, at the beginning of the line, asked if this was our first time (yes) and pleasantly explained how what choices were to be made.

We selected a "pre-planned" meat lovers pizza (cheese, meatballs, pepperoni, and red onions) - only about $10! There were still choices to be made - Italian or turkey meatball.... And much to our surprise, when he was done putting the mozzarella on our pizza, the young man looked up and asked if that was enough cheese! I've never seen that before.

After going through the ingredients line, the pizza is popped into the oven, but is ready within less than about 5 minutes.

Pizzas follow the process with a paper with your choices (and name) on it, matched to the pizza with a metallic tent card with a number on it. I was certain that the process would fall apart at the register, where all the pizzas come out, are matched up with the paper (your name and choices), the cashier cashes you out, and asks if you want any further "topping" (we got pesto sauce).

In spite of pizzas coming out fast and furious and in seemingly random order, the cashier/finisher, Monica (we think she might have been the manager, too), had everything perfect.

As we sat and ate our delicious pizza - did I mention all the ingredients were fresh? - we watched as every employee found something to do at all times. If the line died down, some went and filled napkin holders, other restocked ingredients, others prepped ingredients. The manager went out to check on customer experiences, all the while bussing tables. Not a single employee stood idly by. Further, they all seemed to be smiling, like they enjoyed being there.

We didn't go out of our way to find Blaze Pizza, but if we are ever near one again, we WILL make the effort to eat there!

This Blaze location was moderately busy at dinner time on Friday. Quick service, reasonable prices and to die for pizza. What more could you want? The manager even made his rounds, checking with each table to make sure everyone enjoyed. Love it. We have never had a bad Blaze pizza anywhere in the country.

This place is great! I have been here several times and have a great experience each time. It is always clean, quick, correct and delicious! You get to pick your sauce and ingredients. I would definitely recommend it!

You pretty much decide what size, sauce, meat, cheese, and misc.ingredients so it is custom made for you. You can tell them extra crispy as I did and it comes out exactly as you tell them. This is as close to making it yourself as necessary. Great crispy crust and good fresh ingredients.

This was our first visit to Blaze Pizza. It is set up cafeteria-style so you can request your own sauces and toppings on your individual pizza. I had a parmesan white sauce with roasted chicken, spinach, and mozzarella. It was divine! Within about 8 minutes you have your pizza, hot from the pizza oven. Drinks are self-serve and you clear you own table. We would definitely return.
