Plus, I love seeing guests’ smiles when they see the pizza they’ve created come out of the oven so quickly. It’s a concept I’m thrilled to lend my expertise to,” said Bradford Kent, Executive Chef at Blaze Pizza.About Blaze PizzaA creation of Elise and Rick Wetzel (founder of Wetzel’s Pretzels) and backed by investors including Maria Shriver, movie producer John Davis and Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner, Blaze Pizza features the talents of Chef Bradford Kent of Olio Pizzeria & Café, who developed the dough and recipes exclusively for the company.
