Sal Basille and Francis Garcia Bio

Learn more about the hosts of Pizza Masters.

Cousins and best friends, Francis Garcia and Sal Basille opened Artichoke Basille's® in New York City in 2008. Having gotten their hands into the business early working at their family's restaurant, Basille's in Staten Island, the boys and their pizza shop have made more than a name for themselves in Manhattan. In 2010, the cousins opened up their second Artichoke location in Chelsea, New York City, featuring sit-down dining and expanded menu items. And a third location opened to serve up the legendary slices in what was once the heart of American Bohemia, Greenwich Village on MacDougal Street. Their never-ending line of devoted fans includes the likes of Keith Richards and Momofuku's David Chang.

Check out Artichoke Basille's Pizza's website for more info on their restaurants and where to find their frozen pizzas.
