Best pizza in Middletown hands down

Sauce is terrific. Slight flop, well done crust. Not too greasy. Cheese is a little bland and holds back the overall taste of the pie. 8.2 with better cheese, but overall very good pie.

Looks good but surprisingly disappointing. Thick, bland, greasy, cumbersome.

Solid pizza, wish it was a little more well done, especially the pepperoni. But great flavor with the sauce

Basille’s has a good cook on the crust, no NJ flop, sauce to cheese balanced. A decent NJ football style pie.

A large slice of tasty goodness. Very saucy with a sweet tomato flavor. Crust was crisp and scorched just right. A good choice to stop and eat at. 🍕👍🏼

Truly a hidden gem. This will now be my “go to” spot for pizza. I cannot believe I’ve lived only a few miles from here and never heard of it. To start, the sauce is incredible. The Small chunks of tomato mixed with perfectly seasoned crushed tomatoes lay upon a thin crust dough that has the perfect crunch but is also soft. The cheese is good quality and has the perfect cheese to sauce ratio. I am very pleased with this pie. Only reason it didn’t get higher is because the flop was a little overwhelming.

Plain slice almost margarita style. Great crisp and thin slice. Good flavor.

Great slice, maybe the best I’ve had in the Red Bank/Middletown area. Definitely looking forward to grabbing a whole pie very soon. Go again? Yes thank you.

Let me start by saying it’s an absolute rarity that you find decent pizza in NJ south of Bayonne but FINALLY I’ve found something! Of course it’s a Staten Island transplant that helped save Monmouth County. Basille’s was a Staten Island favorite on Forest Ave when I grew up and it was the go-to place. Also they are tied in with Artichoke Pizza, which is one of the most famous Pizzerias in NYC. Now on to the pizza...... First and foremost.... one of the most important factors in a good pizza is the quality of the sauce. This is a strong point for Basilles. It’s got a great, homemade, natural, fresh tomato taste accented with fresh herbs but not overwhelming. They let the tomato stand out . It has just the right amount of tang without going overboard. They use a good quality cheese, although not the best cheese I’ve ever had but decent quality nonetheless. The dough is nice and crispy with a little NY flop at the tip. By far one of the best non-neopolitan crusts I’ve had down here with the exception of Deninos in Matawn & Brick. There should be more of a crunch/bite but I’ll settle for what I got. The sauce and cheese are proportioned pretty well on the slice as well. This has definitely become my Monmouth county go to spot...... Frankie... I give it an 8.3!
