Two and a Half Ton, Wood Fire, Neapolitan Oven is the Centerpiece
Dan and Robyn opened their family namesake MOROSO with a vision to introduce authentic Neapolitan wood fired pizza to our community. Five years later, a lot of Wacoans are enjoying their artisan pizza that originated over 300 years ago in Naples, Italy. They import flour from the oldest mill in Naples and San Marzano tomatoes from Campania, the valley just below Mt. Vesuvius. Both are organic and non-GMO. Dan says “I love seeing the joy on the faces of new guests when they take their first bite. They get it right away. The crust and the tomatoes are the hallmark of authentic Neapolitan pizza.” MOROSO offers over a dozen different pizza options. Many of them are classic, traditional Neapolitan recipes. However, every year they create one new pizza that’s not so traditional. Last year Dan collaborated with celebrity chef Roi Choi to create a Korean style pizza, which he named the Seoul Brother. This year the restaurant is paying homage to Texas and barbecue with the Wild Hog, a pizza topped with house barbecue sauce, aged American cheddar, slow-smoked pulled pork, pickled onions and a gold medal winning coleslaw. Every pizza is hand stretched, topped and then baked in a two-and-a-half-ton wood fire oven to order.
In addition to Neapolitan pizza, MOROSO offers a full menu of scratch made Italian food including appetizers, salads, pasta, entrees and desserts. Their wine menu is exclusively Italian, sourcing from some of Italy’s best estate grown and organic vintners. An Italian style brunch is served every Sunday.

Truly, the best part of our job is the people we serve,” Dan and Robyn Moroso.
