At last, after all those months of talking about summer gracing us in Vancouver, it’s finally here.
Evenings and weekends feel longer (even if they’re technically not) and that calls for exploring the great outdoors. It only takes one scrolling session on Instagram to find new spots to go biking or hiking around Vancouver.
Let’s face it, you don’t have the time to prepare a picnic basket when you decide to bike the Seawall on a whim. But there’s no point in picking up a bunch of treats that you can’t fit into your backpack, and that’s where the convenience of getting a snack to-go comes in.
Enter, Blaze Pizza. The Calfornia-born pizza spot on Granville Street offers half-boxes that can actually fit into your bag. If you didn’t already know this, prepare to have your best summer yet.
The pizza destination has additional locations in Park Royal, as well as in Surrey, but if you’re living or working downtown, you can make the most of the central location on Granville Street.
Best of all, Blaze cares about providing exceptional quality food at a lightning fast speed (in 180 seconds) so you won’t be waiting long to get your pie to-go. Design your own creative pizza from scratch and look for assistance from the expert pizzasmith on duty if you need some help.
FYI, choosing the toppings for your pizza will be the toughest decision you have to make — because there are 44 options available on the menu. We’re not kidding.
Break out your half box of pizza when you reach the top of the Quarry Rock trail in North Vancouver and delight in the fact that the perfectly-crisp pie you’re about to eat has been made with artisanal ingredients.
To add to that, all pizza dough is made from scratch at Blaze.
Whether you’re planning a hike for this weekend or hitting the beach after work, making a stop at Blaze on the way is the best thing you can do. Bag up your half box of pizza and become the best version of yourself this season — an active planner who’s always prepared.
