There's now only one US McDonald's serving pizza -- here's what it was like to visit before restaurants began dropping it

McPizzaTimber Pizza Co. InstagramThe McPizza is hard to find these days.

The number of McDonald’s locations selling pizza in the US just dropped from three to one.

Two McDonald’s locations   — one in Pomeroy, Ohio, and the other in Spencer, West Virginia — that have kept pizza on the menu since the ’90s were forced to take the item off the menu in late August, West Virginia Illustrated reported.

The Pomeroy location told customers the decision to ditch pizza “was made by McDonald’s Corporate office,” according to Grub Street. 

That means that pizza is now only on the menu at one McDonald’s location in the US — a restaurant in Florida that actually added pizza to the menu in 2016. 

To mourn the loss of the only two McDonald’s that have remained dedicated to pizza since the McPizza’s glory days, here’s a walk down memory lane at the pizza-slinging fast-food locations. 

The McDonald's in Pomeroy, Ohio had it all: burger and fries, 24-hour drive thru service, and, of course, pizza.

The location served both personal and family-sized pies.

Here's what a personal McPizza looked like.

And, here's a family-sized pizza:

People travelled hundreds of miles in search of the McPizza, with customers recording on a sign in the restaurant how far they had driven.

'What 781kms tastes like,' one Instagram user who made the journey said. 'And if you ask me how it taste I'm just going to let you come and try yourself.'

Sadly, other visitors showed up too late to order pizza.

The restaurant's franchisee also owns another McDonald's location a little over an hour drive away in Spencer, West Virginia.

It also sold pizza -- making the Ohio-West Virginia border the McPizza capital of the US for a period of time.

The Spencer location was also a popular road trip destination.

'We made it... the McHoly grail... the McPizza...' one Instagram user posted.

According to customers, pizza paired perfectly with McDonald's fries.

While the West Virginia and Ohio locations have served pizza since it was on McDonald's national menu in the '90s, one McDonald's in Florida began serving pizza in 2016.

To be fair, this is no ordinary McDonald's. The location reopened in March 2016, and, at more than 18,000 square feet, it's one of the largest McDonald's in the world.

Plus, the location has an impressive brunch menu.

In Orlando, pizzas are made to order.

Now, it's the last McDonald's serving pizza in the US.

It's unlikely that other McDonald's locations will start serving pizza. It's time-intensive to make, which can slow down operations.

However, McPizza lovers have one McDonald's location where they can find the menu item -- as long as they're up for a road trip.
