The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Free pizza with the toppings of their choice is what Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers of Blaze Pizza can get on Friday, Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., when the third Long Island branch of the California-based franchise chain debuts at Hicksville’s Broadway Mall. To qualify for the freebie, you must print or, using a mobile device, show proof of being a Blaze Pizza follower on social media.

The chain, which first launched in West Babylon in July 2014, features an assembly-line style of build-your-own 11-inch pizza. You move down a line, choosing either a set option or picking your own ingredients from an array that includes meatballs, sausage, olives and the like. You can even compose a pie half one way, the other half another. There are also vegan and gluten-free choices. Pies are around $8.
