Find Pizza Near You in Dayton, Ohio

There's no city more certain about its creation than Dayton in Ohio. This sprawling metropolis that is now famous throughout America and the world for aircraft construction was first settled by a group of pioneers known as the Thompson Party. They choose a superb spot at the confluence of the Great Miami and Mad Rivers to set up their new home. The two rivers provided an excellent means of transporting goods and it wasn't long before several industries had relocated there. The influx of industry to Dayton was one factor that helped promote its growth, but it was aviation that really concreted its place in history and cemented the city's economic stability. Dayton began its flight into the future after an invention by two local men, the Wright brothers, took off. The aviation industry in Dayton became a major phenomenon and along with other manufacturers attracted many migrant workers. Not all of the Italians moved to the area to work in the factories though. Some opened restaurants and began selling pizza and pasta to the city’s affluent residents.
