Yes, a pizza with artichoke flesh topping.
Artichoke Basille's Pizza was founded in 2008 at this humble 14th Street shop (East Village, NYC). Artichoke Pizza now has several branches around USA including on 17th Street (Chelsea, NYC), Greenwich Village (NYC) and Berkerley, California.
Artichoke Basille's Pizza is basically a take away with only a narrow wooden ledge for customers who wish to dine in.
USD4.75 got me this huge slice of pizza topped with thick cheese and their signature artichoke flesh topping.
The crust had a crisp and was slightly thick.
The slight char at the crispy bottom of the crust.
The cheese and artichoke topping was thick, soft, creamy and
The pizza was savoury and cheesy, slightly heavy on saltiness with sweetness from the artichoke flesh.
The topping was also slightly greasy but not so much that it would soak through the crust.
The crust was a little thick and was chewy like bread with a crisp from the browned underside but didn't have the biscuit crackle of coal baked thin crusts.
This was my first artichoke pizza and I liked it's taste and flavour.
If you are a pizza fan and when you are in NYC, Artichoke Pizza is a Must Try.
Artichoke pizza is different from standard/ regular pizzas, and you can only find the original in New York City.
