Can you dwarf a Manzanilla and Mission olive tree

I just bought a Manzanilla and Mission olive tree and was wondering if I could dwarf these planted trees to 10’ tall and 10’ wide by pruning and still get fruit? Or will it just keep trying to produce more branches and try to grow tall?

Olive trees are popular bonsai subjects as they respond well to size control via pruning and root pruning. So you should be able to control size fairly easily. I’m not sure whether that will interfere with fruit production, though.
