LeBron James wants you to come over for pizza.

Okay, not exactly, but Blaze Pizza — the restaurant chain in which he's famously invested — is offering free pizza tomorrow, Friday, April 14, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Blaze's newest metro Phoenix location at 5120 North Central Avenue in Phoenix.

You just have to follow Blaze on Instagram (@blazepizza), Twitter, or Facebook.

The pizza's thin-crust, and the people who put it together (Chipotle-style, but with pizza) are called pizzasmiths. You can get your dough gluten-free and your cheese vegan — and there will be wine and beer. The Arizona locations are locally owned, so we doubt LeBron will be your pizzasmith.

But most important, like we said: Tomorrow, the pizza is free.
