Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza announced the system-wide launch of its new Simple Salads, a selection of freshly prepared recipes created by Blaze's Executive Chef Bradford Kent. The new Simple Salads are made with in-season produce, tossed with dressing to order, and are available as either a full-size entrée or side salad portion. Each of Blaze Pizza's Simple Salads and dressings are free of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives, furthering the company's commitment to "Keepin' It Real". Alongside Simple Salads, Blaze has also added Salad Pizza to its menus, giving guests yet another way to enjoy their favorite fast-fire'd meal. Salad Pizzas are made with any of the Simple Salads, served on top of a warm garlic pesto & parmesan crust.
Simple Salad options vary by season, and by restaurant. Some recipes now in restaurants include:
Tomato and Mozzarella with wild baby arugula, romaine, cherry tomatoes, ovalini mozzarella, roasted red pepper and basil pesto vinaigrette
Arugula and Fresh Fruit with wild baby arugula, seasonal fruit, goat cheese and balsamic glaze
BLT Cobb, with applewood smoked bacon and buttermilk ranch dressing
Classic Caesar with romaine, Parmesan, asiago croutons and caesar dressing
Kale, Quinoa and Cranberries, a vegan offering, with kale, red quinoa, dried cranberries and a citrus vinaigrette
"We apply the same thoughtful approach to our new Simple Salads as we do to our signature pizzas," says Kent. "Whether a hot-and-crispy pizza, or a salad with fresh, seasonal fruit and wild baby arugula, our goal is to provide guests with a variety of quality, clean ingredients to satisfy their cravings."
