Artichoke Pizza really is that Good

Okay Okay...If you're sick of hearing everyone talk about the new Pizza Joint Artichoke then please skip this post. But if you want to see some pictures of some amazing delicious pizza please read on.

Ever since the slice place on St. Mark's closed years ago to become a Chickpea, I have had a severe pizza void.


Now that void has been filled:)

Look at these slices of pizza! Can you say pure pieces of bliss! If only you could smell the aroma...omg. I barely made it in the door before diving into the box.

Artichoke offers a few different types of pizza. First your classic slice.

This had an excellent sauce that is thicker in texture than a normal pizza sauce with a slight tangy flavor. This slice was cooked a little bit too much for me but the cheese was awesome! Maybe a blend of mozzarella, Parmesan and Pecorino? Good stuff.

The next piece is their signature Artichoke pizza. Which is seriously bigger than my head.

I honestly wasn't sure about this pizza at first.

I had a bite, pondered a little then another bite, pondered and then all of a sudden, I had eaten the whole thing and was craving more!

WOW! It's cheese, artichokes, spinach, olive oil, garlic all baked and thrown together in a sloppy, buttery, wonderful mess.

Overall this pizza kind of reminded me of the spinach and artichoke dip from Houston's but better...and on a pizza!

Last but not least- the Sicilian.

I enjoyed this more than the regular Neapolitan slice. The cheese and sauce were the same but the the crust was more even. It had a great crunch to the edges.

I would gladly have any of these slices again and hopefully I will.

It only took me about 6 times before I finally got to Artichoke when it wasn't closed and man it was worth it.

Maybe my luck is starting to change.

I agree, this pizza just doesn't sit right with me.

I wanted to get you in the loop that I am doing a 5 borough pizza tour. Eating 5 or 6 slices from each borough. This Sunday kicks off in Queens. Maybe this would be something you'd be interested in? You seem like a good eater.
