There is a line around the block at the newest LA-based location of Blaze Pizza, the assembly line-style shop that opened to the public today. Owner Bradford Kent (Olio Pizzeria) came up with the idea to offer a free pie to anyone willing to wait in line in today's 90 degree heat. So far, the shop — which is not in the farmers market proper, but across the street — has served over 100 pizzas gratis.

The concept is identical to LA's other Blaze Pizza locations: Stand in line, watch as a staff member stretches a circle of dough out, pick your sauce, cheese, and toppings, and wait a few minutes until your pizza bubbles and browns in the hot wood-burning oven. Offerings are limited to pizzas, salads, non-alcoholic beverages, and a s'mores pie for dessert. Now open daily from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.
