The namesake artichoke slice ($4.50) is heavy for its size. Though the topping is often compared to a spinach-and-artichoke dip, anything you'd dip into it might very well snap in two, since the creamy base is bolstered by mozzarella and pecorino romano so it won't ooze off the edges.
To manage all that weight, the pizza is framed by a crisp lip — not common, but not unknown, among well-regarded pies — and undergirded by a thick, stiff crust that lacks the chewiness of a classic New York pizza. Even if you enjoy the flavor, one slice is plenty.
