LEXINGTON, KY--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2017) - Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza, the fastest growing restaurant in history, is ringing in the new school year by offering $4.00 pizzas at all three Lexington locations on Wednesday, August 23. During the Blaze Pizza Noncon$4mist event, pizzas will be just $4.00 for all guests during normal operating hours. Limit to one pizza per guest. The offer is not valid for online orders.

Blaze Pizza is a modern day "pizza joint" serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable. 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 carefully sourced, high-quality ingredients -- all for around $8. The generously sized personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven, the centerpiece of the restaurant, where dedicated pizzasmiths fast-fire the thin crust pies in just 180 seconds.

"Back-to-School is an exciting time when students, teachers, parents and staff look ahead toward all that can be accomplished in the new school year," said Mike Forte, Operating Partner for Blaze Pizza in Lexington. "To celebrate, we welcome everyone in to try a build-your-own pizza for just $4 during our Noncon$4mist event."

Each restaurant makes their own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically acclaimed Executive Chef Bradford Kent (the "Pizza Whisperer"), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. All of the pizza and salad ingredients are free of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives, and for pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese. 

Back-to-School is also the perfect time of the year to focus on building new partnerships with Lexington-area organizations and schools. Blaze Pizza has developed a turnkey in-restaurant fundraiser program that returns 20 percent of an event's proceeds back to local organizations.
