Home of The Original White Pizza
Nearly 18 years ago, Akron was introduced to DeCheco’s Original White Pizza and the hype hasn’t died off since. The beauty parlor turned pizza shop is home to “mom’s” recipes, loyal customers and a family’s life long dream of making pizza.
Jack and Shirley DeCheco opened DeCheco’s barbershop and an adjoining beauty parlor in 1978. After a broken leg left Shirley unable to work in the salon, Jack took a risk and opened up the pizza shop he always wanted. The barbershop moved to the beauty parlor side and the vacant parlor became the Akron staple known as DeCheco’s Pizzeria.
Taking part in the new venture, mom created all the recipes that are still used today. The famous “White Pizza” was the brainchild of Shirley herself, as she tried many recipes to get that winning combination. The area locals were intrigued by this new idea in pizza and kept spreading the word of the Original White Pizza. Covered in a creamy garlic butter sauce and topped with fresh tomatoes, banana peppers, black olives and herbs it’s clear to see why this pizza brings in half of DeCheco’s business still today.
Their menu also showcases other favorite specialty pizzas including their Baked Potato Pizza and BLT Pizza. New to their menu is your choice of the Spicy or Sweet BBQ Chicken Pizzas- Yum! You can also build your own pizza with a long list of available toppings. An assortment of chicken, hot wings and other Italian favorites such as stromboli and an antipasto salad are also available at affordable prices and mouthwatering tastes.
Many years in business have proven that their product can’t be copied. People want the original! DeCheco’s treats all their customers like family and are always pleased to see their loyal following come in for yet another tasty pizza. Monday and Tuesday nights hold place to their outstanding weekly specials which customers old and new can reap the savings.
