LOS ANGELES, Nov. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the recognized world leader in fast artisanal pizza, announced today the Canada-wide availability of two game-changing pizza crusts, including a Keto Crust, which contains just six grams of net carbs, and a Cauliflower Crust.

In conjunction with the launch, the brand will also make its fan-favorite Life Mode Pizzas available, with guests being able to get them exclusively through Blaze Pizza’s mobile app and online.

“As the first national chain to unveil a Keto Crust, Blaze’s innovation is changing the way that guests think about and eat pizza,” said Executive Chef, Bradford Kent. “We’re making pizza an option, even for those on a low carb diet.” 

Along with the company’s new Keto and Cauliflower Crusts, (both available for an additional charge), Blaze Pizza will continue to offer its Original, High-Rise and gluten-free dough options, all made from scratch, in-house daily.

About Blaze Pizza
Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable.  With fans lining up or ordering online each day for their custom-built pizzas, freshly made salads, house made lemonades and s’more pies, the innovative fast-casual concept has quickly become one of the hottest restaurant chains in the country.  Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of inventive toppings.  The generously-sized pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure the artisanal pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just minutes.  Restaurants make fresh dough from scratch using a proprietary recipe developed by Executive Chef Bradford Kent (the “Pizza Whisperer”), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. 

Recently named #1 ‘Brand of the Year’ in the Fast Casual Top 100, the fast-growing chain currently operates over 340 restaurants in 41 states and 6 countries.  The concept is backed by private equity firm Brentwood Associates and founding investors, which include LeBron James, Maria Shriver, movie producer John Davis and Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner.  For more information, please visit blazepizza.com and facebook.com/blazepizza or click here to view a company video.
