"Artichoke Basille's Pizza Taste Like Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup"
Well, I finally made it over to Artichoke Pizza. I wanted to like it, "I really did." I sorry to report, It's on par with Chicago Deep Dish, Mediocre to Good at Best. Just as Chicago Deep Dish "Artichoke Pizza can't hold a candle to the Best of New York, places like Tottono's, John's, Lombardi's, and Patsy's. These places make some of the best Pizza in the "World" Forget about these places, "Artichoke Pizza" is inferior to most "Runof the Mill" Pizza Parlors. The Pizza is very flawed. First off, the crust is awful, way to dense as it is not "proofed" long enough and feels like a ball of lead.
I arrive there, and sure enough, there was a line. The place looked pretty cool, "Nice Decor." I was excited and hoping for the best, like a reaally good to great slice of Pizza. Unfortunately, I was highly disapointed. I waited about ten minutes and got my slice, "The Artichoke." Man it was big. It looked really impressive. If found a place to sit on the "Stoop" of the building next door and bit in.
What a "Suprise." I couldn't beleive it. "It tasted "EXactly like Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup," something I Loved, but handn't tasted in years, "Cream of Mushroom Soup." If nothing else, "Artichoke Pizza" brought back memories of my childhood.
I have to say, I know these guys are trying hard, but this Pizza Just Can't Cut the Mustard. It's mediocre, and I've got to say, "These Guys are Lucky as Hell to be putting out just a fair product, and making a small fortune doing it.
