The sign advertising the future Disney Springs location of Blaze Pizza says “Your Assembly Required.” It’s a Chipotle (or Subway if you prefer) model quick service location where you choose your pizza crust, sauce, cheese, and toppings, then Blaze Pizza’s experts fast-bakes it in their super-heated pizza oven to deliver to you the pizza of your dreams.

You’ll choose from over 40 toppings to place on your 11-inch pizza. It is then fast-fired and available about 3 minutes later. In addition to pizzas, you can choose a salad, drink, or a s’more pie for dessert.

It took a little bit of navigating through the newly opened Town Center section of Disney Springs to find the future home of Blaze Pizza. It’s actually located between D-Luxe Burgers and Planet Hollywood Observatory. If you’re coming from The Landing side, here’s a little bridge you cross from the path next to the future Art Smith’s Homecoming restaurant.

The Blaze Pizza Disney Springs location will be a 5,000 square foot flagship restaurant for the chain. What I love about the design (seen above in the concept art) is how the wood beams are suspended without supports on one side. It gives a very open air feel to the outdoor porch, one that will allow patrons to enjoy the atmosphere of the Springs as they enjoy their pizza.

A little known fact is that Blaze Pizza was founded by Elise and Rick Wetzel (co-founder of Wetzel’s Pretzels). Investors include LeBron James and Maria Shriver. Blaze Pizza is artisinal pizza, where you’re the artist. Are you looking forward to making your own Blaze Pizza when the location opens later this year?
