Not many of the “northern” towns I have lived in, Yellowknife and Fort St John, have Pizza Shops that sell pizza by the slice. It seems like such a simple lunch meal, but not many offer. Yellowknife did have a few joints that sold pizza slices, but in all honesty it was overly greasy and I didn’t think any place in Fort St John did.
I think Fort St John has 5 different establishments that make pizza, Boston Pizza, Domino’s, Panago, Remedies Lounge and Olio’s. For the last couple months I thought that only made whole pizzas, until I started questioning today on Twitter.
Olio’s is a locally owned small Pizza Shop which does mainly delivering and pickup. The pizza is like no other I have ever had. It is authentic pizza with real ingredients. I have become addicted to them over the last couple months, ordering every couple weeks.
When I asked on Twitter today, many other local users suggested I stop by Olio’s and check. Sure enough when I made my way at lunch they did and for an amazing lunch special.
For only $5.00 you can get a large slice of pizza and a can of pop, no tax. This is my kind of lunch. Two reasons, it is cheaper than my normal lunch and it is portion control.
So if you find yourself in Fort St John, I suggest you try Olio’s Pizza for lunch or anytime.
