Back when I was in College, shout out to West Chester University, there was nothing better than grabbing a couple of slices to go after two-dollar beer night on Thursdays.

Granted, the pizza at my alma mater is nothing compared to the quality stuff we have here in Jersey.

Now, according to, it looks as if Artichoke Basille's Pizza is going to be coming to the college town of New Brunswick in the near future. says that the new shop, known casually as Artichokes, will have its grand opening in New Brunswick on August 30th.

And if you're curious why people just call it artichokes, it's because they're known for their artichoke pizza.

I'll try anything once, but artichoke on pizza is going to fall into a similar category as pineapple on pizza if you ask me.
