Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza

The latest "Chipotle of pizza" contender to arrive in Houston is this California-based franchise that counts NBA superstar Lebron James as one of its investors. The recipe is simple: choose your crust (regular or gluten free), cheese, sauce and toppings then wait a few minutes while the pizza bakes in a gas-fired oven. No matter how many toppings a person chooses to pile on — remember, when it comes to pizza, less really is more — the price is the same (about $8). At 11-inches in diameter, the pies are big enough to be a filling meal for one despite their thin crust; those seeking to have leftovers should probably mix in one of the available salads.

Overall, the experiences rates a little better than delivery thanks to the freshness of the toppings and a little char on the crust, but Pizaro's, Coltivare and other high-quality local options don't have anything to worry about.
