Artichoke Basille Pizza Has Arrived!

After much speculation, waiting and wondering – it’s officially happening: Artichoke Basille’s Pizza is making its Astoria debut.


The storefront is currently covered up so we couldn’t see inside – but this sign was hanging in the window.



The new pizza spot is located at 22-56 31st Street – and this is the seventh location!


If you’ve never had Artichoke Basille’s Pizza..oh my. It sounds gross at first. Whose first thought about pizza is “WE SHOULD PUT ARTICHOKE ON THIS.” But it totally works. Artichoke pizza is extremely thick and creamy – you kind of have to toss out all your ideas about pizza, and have them re-made. The slices are huge, and even one is enough to fill an empty stomach. Two and you’ll be groaning on your couch.


They’ve also got classic slices, Sicilians, and another unique one – the crab pizza. All are tasty – but we’ve found the crab can be a little…hard to swallow sometimes. You really have to be a crab lover.


We can’t wait for the doors to open! You can never have enough pizza – especially unique pizza layered with artichoke!
