“Not Exactly DIY. But Novelty Nonetheless.”

Blaze Fast Fired Pizza
Ranked #12 of 24 Quick Bites in Cambridge
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 August 2016 via mobile

After shopping at Cambridgeside, we were dead beat and hungry by 7 pm. Saw a large queue and decided to hop in. This is presented as DIY pizza - select your own basic signature dish, choose thick or thin dough, add in toppings. The nature of DIY is not new; cf Subway style. We initially thought we could hands-on make-our-own (haha). For choice of thick dough add $2. For extra toppings add couple of bucks more. The basic signature is 7.95. 2 bbq chicken, 1 meat eater pepperoni, 1 soda and 1 lemonade came to $ 31.61 for the 3 of us. Not expensive.

We came for the novelty of a new arrival. Crew were friendly, cheerful and young. When busy they could have a hard time hearing your name or order. We thought the dough could have added a little more yeast to help settle. We didn't like the mozarella cheese; guessed we got used to Domino. Anyway these are our opinion of taste. To each their own. Eat what you like !

From order to takeaway the wait is about 8-12 minutes. When crowded the seating area can be cramped. To make things worse you have parents who could not control their active kids or manage the parking of their strollers inside an already cramped space. Leaving outside in a demarcated zone is much better; it might not be feasible due to crime. Drinks are re-fillable.

Being new, kudos for a great entrepreneurial effort

I would like to give them a higher rating, but still doesn't meet my expectations. Compared to 800 degrees, Blaze pizza is just okay. I think it's the tomato sauce and the bulk mozzarella. You can load it with whatever you want, but it doesn't make it greater. I'm a fan of simple ingredients and the tomato sauce and mozzarella must be good.

Perfectly cooked pizza, do it yourself style, lots of fresh toppings, just opened but already getting crowded, and best of all extremely cheap for its price, I'd rather go here than area four

Tried this place based on recommendations of others who've eaten here. The pizza is good and it is made to order (think Chipotle format). Moderately fast process and decent results.

There is both indoor and outdoor seating. The indoor area suffers from same issue that Chipotle and other similar restaurants: music that is blasting so loud as to be difficult to talk.

One issue encountered was several of the staff had trouble communicating in English where it is clearly a 2nd language for them and they had trouble understanding me.

E.g. - when asked my name(George) for the order, the staff person did not know how to spell my name...
