As Walt Disney World transitions Downtown Disney to Disney Springs, more new vendors are being announced. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza is one of them.
If there’s one thing that area has been needing is a pizza joint, and Blaze Pizza sounds like it’ll fill that spot nicely.
Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” known for its artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies. It currently operates 72 stores nationwide. The Disney Springs location will occupy a new 5,000-sq-ft building with seating for approximately 200 guests.
Mellow Mushroom Pizza will bring back selections from its original 1974 menu on August 20th in a “Way Back Wednesday” celebration to mark the brand’s 40th anniversary.
For this one day the chain’s three Orlando area locations will be offering a small cheese pizza for $2.50, drafts of Michelob/Budweiser/PBR for 75 cents, and Coke products for 30 cents.
Customers will also have a chance to win a trip to Amsterdam for two. Pose in-store with a backdrop of the first Mellow Mushroom location and post it to Instagram with #40YearsBaked to enter. Those without an Instagram account can upload their images to 40yearsbaked.com.
Mellow Mushroom is located at 2015 Aloma Ave in Winter Park; 11680 E. Colonial Dr in Orlando; and 18221 US Hwy 441 in Mount Dora. For more information, visit mellowmushroom.com.
A new dining option has opened at Universal Orlando CityWalk. Red Oven Pizza Bakery is the name, and it serves artisan pizzas and salads.
There are five types of red pizzas (w/tomato sauce) and five types of white sauce pizzas. Most of the choices are vegetarian friendly. According to the menu, all pizzas are made with organic EVO, buffalo mozzarella, “00” flour, and filtered water. Red sauces also use San Marzano tomatoes.
Pizza prices range from $12 – $14, and they look to feed two (or one really hungry person). There are also three types of salad, priced from $9 – $11.
Drink options include beer (bottled & draft) and wine by the glass, along with Coke products, iced tea, and bottled water.
You place your order at the counter, get a number, then they bring your food out to you. Seating is outdoors, but covered.
Red Oven Pizza Bakery is located across from the Universal AMC Theaters, where the Endangered Species store used to be. This looks to be a great place to grab a quick bite to eat.
