The pizza margherita eats like the classic you know, even if it's misspelled as "margharita." The Scandinavian contains potatoes and caramelized onions; the Greek Style pizza has feta and, of course, olives. People love the pizza at Olives, but they're obsessed with the sandwiches: On breads sourced from La Brea Bakery, assemblers stack Niman Ranch's applewood smoked bacon for the regular BLTs, adding avocado spread, New Mexico green chiles and chipotle aioli for the "Hot BLTs."
