Be There or Be Square

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 9, 2015) - This year's Pi Day will be a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, with the first five digits of Pi, 3.1415, corresponding with this year's full date, 3/14/15. In honor of this unconventional celebration of the circle, Blaze Fast Fire'd Pizza invites guests to build their own artisanal pizza "pi" on March 14 for just $3.14 at any location. In addition, every 314th guest to post a picture of themselves with their pizza on Instagram using the hashtag #blazepizza will receive a "round" of 10 free pizza passes. Full details about the Instagram promotion are available at

"Math can be complex. Pizza shouldn't be," said Jim Mizes, president and chief operating officer, Blaze Pizza. "We keep it simple with dough made from-scratch in-house daily. With more than 40 different sauces, cheeses and toppings that range from inventive to classic, the combinations are almost as infinite as Pi."

Blaze Pizza is a modern day "pizza joint" known for its custom-built artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s'more pies. Each restaurant features an interactive assembly-line 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 under $8. The generously-sized 11-inch 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. For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.
