The best pizza in Ware: a local guide

Ware was first settled in the early 18th century after a landowner, who had acquired eleven thousand acres in a grant, began to portion the land into plots and lease them. In the ensuing decades the industrious pioneers built sawmills, grist mills and textile mills as well as a few taverns to keep the working forces content. The continued production of cotton-based goods ensured Ware's prosperity until the start of the 20th century. After the town, which is located by the Ware River, reached its population peak in the early 1900s, it's pretty much remained the same ever since. While Ware hasn't developed much during the last century, there were still enough people living there to attract the attention of some ambitious Italians. Once they'd relocated to Ware and set up their pizzerias, the locals were at last able to get their hands on some pizza without having to leave town.
