After how much I loved going to Blaze Pizza in Davie and getting a pizza made fresh in front of me just the way I like it, I was real excited to move into a new neighborhood (Wilton Manors, an area of Fort Lauderdale) and have a location really close to my house right up Andrews Ave. My girlfriend was tied up one evening and asked what I was going to do for dinner in her absence and I said I’ll probably go to Blaze, I had a craving for pizza. She asked “Why don’t you try out Flash Fire Pizza? It’s the same thing.” I’d driven by it before but had never noticed it. I pulled it up on the internet and liked what I saw and decided to give it a try.
Flash Fire Pizza Review
Following the same concept as Blaze, at Flash Fire Pizza you go through the assembly line and have a pizza put together right in front of you. You start out by choosing a dough> You have the choice of a roman thin crust and a gluten-free thin crust. Then you have a choice of sauces (I went with the classic red, but they also have pesto, spicy red, house white, roasted garlic oil, and bar-b-que).
Then it’s on to the cheeses. The standard is fresh mozzarella, but there’s also feta, ricotta (which I always get a few dollops of), goat, gorgonzola, and smoked gouda.
After that you move on to the toppings. I’m a meat lover, so I loaded it up with pepperoni, meatballs, bacon, and some buffalo chicken ($1.00 extra). I’ll say the biggest advantage of Flash Fire over Blaze is the bigger selection of meats. Lots to choose from. I’m not much of a veggie guy, at least when it comes to my pizza, so I skipped that part and was ready for them to put it in the oven.
Your pizza is put in a super hot oven and within minutes you’re ready to eat. All in all, it was pretty delicious and the price was right. With my personal pizza (plus premium toppings for an extra charge) and a drink I was out of there for around $12. A quick, easy, affordable dinner. Aside from pizza they also have salads and sandwiches. I’ve only made one visit so far but I’ll be back sometime to check those out.
Aside from the great pizza, the design and decor is well done. The place has a nice look to it, higher scale than most fast casual places.
There is only one location for Flash Fire Pizza, as far as I know, and it’s on North Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. It’s about one block south of Oakland Park Boulevard. If you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth checking out. Quick pizza made with fresh ingredients and downright delicious. They also serve wine and beer there to complement your meal, but while I’m in the neighborhood I prefer to make a stop at my favorite brewery and taproom, Funky Buddha. Or you can finish it off with some dessert at the nearby Wilton Creamery in Wilton Manors.
