It’s been a year since they’ve opened, and Rocko’s Pizza in Woodlyn is a Delco success story, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Daily Times.

The pizza shop quietly opened as a new business a year ago July, in a pandemic.

Four business partners, all with Delco roots, came together to bring made-from-scratch boardwalk style pizza to the area.

It’s motto?  “Grab a Slice of Delco.”

Semo Wahdan has been crafting his unique pizza for 18 years.

Dean and Heidi Puliti of West Chester, owners of Iacobucci Formal Wear in Morton and Glen Mills, are big fans of the pizza. They decided to join Semo and Ebony Wahdan and go into business.

Besides pizza, Rocko’s offers hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, salads, seafood, pasta, wraps, calzones and more. Customers come back for their Stromboli, Sicilian pizza and inside outs.  Maria’s Bakery in Ridley Township provides desserts.

“Semo is known for his hard work ethic and his pizza,” Dean said. “His food is unbelievable and his white pizza is dynamite.”

Semo crafted the menu, Ebony adds.

“He’s very particular. Semo selects the beef, the seafood and other items here himself. He wants top quality.”
