Find Local Pizza in Cocoa Beach, Florida

Cocoa Beach was first settled by a group of men freed from working on Florida plantations after the abolition of slavery. In the 1920s, they sold the terrains they'd acquired to a developer who recognized the area's potential as a vacation resort. Although the developer's plans would launch Cocoa Beach's future, it was a few decades before the settlement was organizedThis enough to be called a town. In the end it wasn't the stretches of sandy beaches that encouraged people to move to Cocoa Beach, but the installation of the nearby rocket site at Cape Canaveral and the John F. Kennedy Space Center in the 1960s. Housing was cheap in Cocoa Beach and people employed by the space programs moved to the town to be closer to their work. In the mid-1970s when some of the space programs were shut down, a few enterprising Italians, rather than move away, took the risk of opening their own businesses and have been baking pizzas for locals and visitors since then.

Cocoa Beach in Florida is known for New York-style pizza

The pizza that Cocoa Beach is known for is New York-style. It's been a favorite with the visitors who head there to take a stroll along the beachfront as they can just pick up a slice to take-out and eat while enjoying a breath of the North Atlantic air or watching the rocket launches happening further along the coast. New York-style pizza emerged onto the American food scene in the 1930s after being created by a New York pizza chef. It's a version of the traditional thin-crusted Neapolitan-style pizza which originates from the Naples region of Italy. The creative chef stretched out the dough to make his pie giant-size then once baked, he cut it into large wedges which consumers could fold to eat. It was a way of eating pizza that caught on quickly and New York-style pizza soon became the nation's favorite.

Titusville

If you decide to go to Titusville for the day, be careful how you program your navigational app as there's a city by the same name in Pennsylvania. Titusville near Cocoa Beach is only thirty miles north, bordered on one side by the Indian River and on the other by the Charles H. Bronson State Forest. The forest and the many wildlife management areas it contains is the perfect place to escape from the coast for a few hours. Go hiking though the woodlands and wetlands, spot wildlife like squirrels and bald eagles, but watch out for the alligators. The best idea is to keep a slice of the pizza you had from Humpavelli's on Columbia Boulevard in your rucksack just in case you run into a hungry one.

You can take a tour around the installation, meet an astronaut, and even get to touch a rock that was brought back from the moon. If space isn't your thing then visit the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge before going for a pie at Pozzy Bros Pizza in Palm Bay Plaza.

To have a great end to the day, drop by Wagon Wheel Pizza on Palm Bay Road Northeast for a pie.
