Blaze Pizza is cooking up a historical celebration this Pi Day by celebrating the once-in-a-lifetime occurrence when the first five digits of pi, 3.1415, correspond with this year’s full date, 3/14/15. Louisville’s Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza invites guests to build their own artisanal pizza “pi” on March 14 for $3.14 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. 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.
The Louisville Blaze Pizza, located at 4600 Shelbyville Road, celebrated its grand opening just nine months ago when more than 1,000 free pizzas were given away on Free Pizza Day. Now, Blaze is “unfollowing the rules” again for the sake of pi.
“This Pi Day is not just about celebrating the circle, we also want to celebrate the Louisville community which has embraced our fast fire’d pizza, and brought us into their community circle,” says Rodney Poston, Blaze operating partner in Kentucky. “At Blaze, we serve up delicious pizza, with topping combinations that 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. The 11-inch pizzas are then sent to a blazing-hot open-flame oven—the centerpiece of the restaurant—for 180 seconds. For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese. The Louisville Blaze also offers selection of wine and craft beers.
