Find Local Pizza in Waco, Texas

Waco was an existing settlement from well before the 19th century and while most of the terrains were inhabited by natives of the Wichita tribe, there were also a few Europeans there who tried to scratch a living from the land. It wasn't until the mid-1850s though when a surveyor, who had been employed by independent landowners, laid plans for an organized town and Waco began to take shape as the first home was built. Waco developed in the ensuing years from being a one wooden house town to being an urban spread covering acres and acres. After the residents got together to fund the installation of a suspension bridge over the Brazos River, several manufacturing plants relocated there. A sizable population with stable employment and enough spare cash to spend on dining out was the perfect magnet to attract enterprising Italians to open pizzerias in the city and it wasn't long before pizzas were vying for favoritism alongside the local’s other preferred food, the all-American hamburger.
