A good slice of pizza can be hard to find. Luckily, we just discovered a new favorite in South Tempe. Artichoke Basille’s Pizza showcases large New York-style slices that are undeniably delicious.
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza has a NYC-inspired design that boasts a beautiful copper ceiling with crystal chandeliers offering a bit of sparkle for date night or a family night out. The 2,500-sq.-ft. restaurant includes a spacious patio for a casual indoor-outdoor vibe.
Artichoke’s signature slices have earned endless lines and loyal pizza fans nationwide. The authentic style of pizza was born in 2008 and bred from fourth-generation New York restaurateurs. (There are several NY-based restaurants, as well as outposts in New Jersey, Connecticut and California.) The robust menu includes 11 specialty pizzas (including elevated offerings like crab pizza with lobster sauce) with eight slices each, salads, sandwiches and a full cocktail bar.
You can taste the quality ingredients and the love in every bite of the pepperoni pizza, with plum tomato sauce and a melty blend of Italian cheeses. Portions are huge; be sure to share or get a box to go.
To make pizza night even tastier, treat yourself to a burnt orange and vanilla Old Fashioned or a refreshing red wine sangria with orange slices, apple slices and blackberries.
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza is open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. For more information about Artichoke Basille’s Pizza in South Tempe and to see the complete menu, visit www.artichokepizza.com.
