Olio Pizzeria GCM
Olio Pizzeria GCM is the second Olio restaurant for chef/owner Brad Kent. Since 2010, his olive wood-fired, thin-crust pies have attracted pizza lovers to the original location on West Third Street and was named one of the nation’s “Top 10 Destination Pizzas” by Zagat.
The inspiration for Olio Pizzeria GCM is the Market back in 1917. The pizza will be hand-made, Old World-style. Kent is bringing over a wood-fire oven from Italy and won’t be using any gas or electricity. In addition to classic Olio pizza varieties, you can eat seasonal pies especially for the Market with locally sourced ingredients like roasted frisée and lemon-infused mascarpone.
