Olive's dining room has high ceilings and plenty of windows to let the outside in, but there's also a spacious deck attached to the side of the building. The back of the shop is the coziest spot, where diners can watch the artisan pies cooking in a wood-fired brick oven imported from Italy. Toppings include standards like the Italian-style Margherita or the American Supreme topped with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, olives, peppers, and cheese. Olive's offers pies styled after Greek and Mediterranean regions, but it's hard to resist the Alaskan, made with fresh dill, plump capers, sweet onions, cream cheese, and smoked wild-caught salmon. (If you're having trouble deciding, go halfsies.) During warm weather, Olive's serves dinner Thursday through Sunday, as well as lunch on the weekends. While you're waiting for your pizza, try a pint of the local favorite summer beer, Farm Girl Saison from the Stillwater-based Lift Bridge brewery.
My friend and I ate at this Olive's for the first time a couple weeks ago. We had the "Farmers Market" pizza. Hands down the best pizza either of us have had!! (I am 32, he is 44) My Mom is a chef so needless to say I've had plenty of good food in my days! Next time she visits me, I am taking her to Olive's.

Also the staff is very friendly, the owner is very down to earth, someone you'd want to hang out with after closing time just to shoot the breeze.
