The census-designated community of Broomall in Pennsylvania was first settled by a pioneer who opened a tavern at a crossroads on a wagon train trail. Some, though not many, travelers journeying from Philadelphia to the more northern regions of the state looking for terrains to settle on liked the location alongside Darby Creek and stayed. Broomall didn't develop into anything much more than a rural farming village until the late 20th century when a scientific company purchased tracts of land to build a manufacturing plant there. They employed several hundred people who subsequently relocated to Broomall. The new influx of residents also attracted subsidiary businesses and Broomall eventually began to develop into a sizable community. By the 1970s the population of Broomall was numerous enough to grab the attention of some enterprising Italian families who were searching for somewhere to open their restaurants. They moved to Broomall, opened their businesses, and were soon serving that tasty Italian dish of dough, sauce, and cheese called pizza to the locals.
Broomall is known for Neapolitan-style pizza which is a type of thin-crust pizza that originated from the Naples region of Italy. What a Neapolitan-style pizza usually consists of is dough made from yeast, flour, and water that's pressed out into a thin round before being covered with a homemade tomato sauce and sprinkled with cheese. When baked, a Neapolitan-style becomes crispy and is totally delicious to eat. It doesn't need any fancy tweaks to make it great, but the chefs of the pizzerias in Broomall still like to be inventive on occasion. You'll find pizzerias in Broomall that bake their Neapolitan-style pizzas square instead of round, in pans and even one that coats the base of their house specials with sesame seeds. Now that's definitely inventive.

The one thing everyone wants to see when they go to Philadelphia for the first time is the Liberty Bell, but what can you do after that?
