Stop #2 - Oliver's in Peoria Heights
Tonight we visited Oliver's in Peoria Heights. They make thin crust pizza only. I have to say I was not looking forward to it, as thin crust is not my favorite. However.... it was really good! We ordered the Hawaiian pizza (ham, pineapple, and 3 cheeses) We tend to like this pizza and have had it at several places. Therefore we feel quite qualified in rating this particular flavored pizza. It was quite good; the crust was flaky and crisp on the edges and not too soggy in the middle. It's hard to not get soggy with a pizza sporting pineapple with all the water it carries. They added the trace of cornmeal under the crust which did not go unnoticed, it was great.
I must say, for a thin crust pizza I was impressed. They DO need to use larger chunks of ham, so we can actually taste it, but other than that, it was pretty good.
