Anyone that's ever tried eating an olive from the tree before brining or curing will marvel that a method was ever conceived to make the things edible. Some feel that milleniums of cultivation still haven't done much for them in the way of flavor and that they are the topping most practiced at ruining an otherwise tasty pie. Canning certainly hasn't done a lot to salvage the olive in the eyes of many, but others can't get enough of 'em no matter their grade, quality, or container. So where do you stand on olives and pizza?
