Best White Pizza in Akron

Originating from the unlikely duo of two of the area’s top hair stylists, Jack, a barber, and Shirley, a beautician, the DeCheco Family started serving up fresh pizza pies in 1993. Upon breaking an ankle in 1992, the family of three was left out of half the income they were accustomed to.  Jack, after arriving home one day, told his wife that they should open a pizzeria. Shirley, rendered unable to walk for nearly a year, agreed it would be something fun to do. A few days later, a mixer was brought to the house and the dough started flying. It was LITERALLY flying. The amount of flour that was thrown about the household kitchen was a sight to see. As fate would have it, Shirley prevailed and what came of this experiment happened to be a widely recognized pizza shop in the greater Akron area. Now taken over by their son Nathan in 2014, the DeCheco family is keeping the tradition going. We take great pride in ensuring the quality of our product and that each customer leaves with a positive experience. We are thankful for your business and we look forward to seeing you in the future!

Nathan, now current owner, will continue on the tradition of excellence in ensuring the quality of your meal. In doing so, YOU the customer will be made to feel like part of the family. Don’t worry, he’s been perfecting the craft since the beginning.

The real HERO behind DeCheco’s Pizzeria is Shirley DeCheco. She is responsible for all of the homemade recipes that are still a part of our fabric today. The day to day operations were ran by Jack DeCheco and later purchased by their son, Nathan in 2014.
