Artichoke Basille’s Pizza New York City


Mad Greek goes from the ridiculous to the sublime. Back in the friendly confines of New York City and Artichoke Basille’s Pizza. And by the looks of things early on about the only thing funny about this place is it’s name.

Knock-knock… Who’s there?… Artichoke… Artichoke who?… Arti choke his chicken last night after his wife threw him out the house. Anyways you can see why I am a pizza reviewer and not a comedian


Macaroni Grill Boca Raton Pizza


The Macaroni Grill changed their pizza a while back, hoping to sell more since the previous version was pretty hideous. They reached out to me several times asking if I would like to be a part of their focus group but I never heard back from them. The other day I realized that they did in fact change their pizza and decided to try a piece of my friends pie to see if anything changed for the better.

Unlike most of the pizza I eat, my buddy ordered his pizza at the Macaroni Grill with pepperoni. The Primo Pepperoni Pizza came with artisan pepperoni, fresh mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. I usually do not like the smell of Pepperoni so I managed to use a knife and fork and out out a slice that was plain.


Borriello Brothers Pizza Colorado Springs, CO


The Mad Greek is back in pizza action at Borriello Brothers Real New York Pizza on Rte. 24 in Colorado Springs. I know it has been a while and you probably missed me but I am back and will hopefully start sending in more reviews.

About the only good thing as an omen before I marched into the unknown (is there really any good pizza outside of New York?) was my favorite # is at least 24. That being said, Borriello’s was voted best pizza in 2008 through 2011. The question is where? If it was voted best in all of Colorado, I can understand as it’s nearest rival Beau Jo’s should be turned into a thrift shop that serves spicy buffalo wings because BJs pizza flat out was horrible in my opinion.


Sal’s Pizza Garden Shops Boca Raton


Sal’s Pizza in Boca Raton has a couple of locations. The one we went to on this completely overcast and pouring rain kind of evening was in the Garden Shops. I haven’t ever really been a fan of any of the Sal’s pizzas that I have eaten so I wasn’t hopeful for anything different out of this location.

We got some Mozzarella Sticks and ordered an individual pie on the well done side each. Of course I got mine plain, since that is the best way to truly taste a pizza and compare it to other plain pies you have previous had. The guest I had joining me had meatball on his.
