As an Italian, pizza has and always be part of my diet. That and pasta obviously. But with a new area to explore, there's new places to eat.

When you move, you might not be able to find all the places the you enjoyed in your new area. Sometimes the places you enjoy are simply just local, and haven't branched out to other parts of the country.

Which got me thinking about the pie that we eat for dinner instead of dessert. So I put the call out to see who could show me the best pizza pies in Texas. And it's not surprising that yes, many delivered.

I also just realized that I inadvertently made a delivery joke about pizza, but we must move on.

While scanning the replies, I received many great answers, and one that certainly made me laugh. Someone sent in a suggestion that said there was no great pizza around Texas. Which was actually surprising to me, but they did provide a reason.

They said the reasoning is that they were from Chicago. I get that, deep dish pizza is actually pretty good. But I also grew up on eating New Jersey pizza too, since I would go visit my cousins up there.

So enough talk, let's get to finding out where the best pizza is around here. Because if I don't get to telling everybody, someone might end up eating their phone. Which doesn't sound very good to eat if we're all being honest here.

This Temple, Texas DoorDasher Helped an Elderly Woman Get Fresh Start

Shelby Moeller never imagined that an odd request while delivering for Door Dash would lead to a life-changing experience for him as well as an elderly woman who needed more than food.

He described his initial encounter on Facebook, thanking people who offered to help the 78-year-old woman he named 'Jane Doe' to protect her privacy. On March 20th, he was able to share some amazing news on Facebook.

"Many of you probably remember my post last week about door dashing and coming across an elderly woman in deplorable conditions. When I made the post, I was thinking that I just needed to raise awareness that our elderly right here in our community are often alone, forgotten, and in need of help. I never imagined that through my post, God was going to provide a small but mighty army of volunteers that would jump in and save Jane Doe."

Jane Doe had to be moved out of her apartment while biohazard disinfecting was done by Spotless Crime Clean. All furniture, carpet, and most of her possessions had to be thrown away. There was also no edible food, as everything in the kitchen was either expired or infested with insects.

Shelby was able to spend some time with the woman, who he described as his 'new adopted grandma'. He learned about her background, and how she had struggled throughout her entire life, being reduced to having nothing multiple times. She had developed some hoarding behaviors, and he believed that some of that was due to her fear of losing everything again.

Take a look at the before and after photos of the amazing transformation of her home that changed a Central Texas woman's life and helped her start over in a healthy environment.
