Sicilian-style pizza has steadily fallen by the wayside, shunned by aficionados of its nemesis, the thin-crusted Neapolitan pizza that seems to generate all the accolades. For those of you who sidestep Sicilian pizza because of its heft or breadiness, meet Dolce Sicilia, an Italian bakery in Wheat Ridge that turns out pan pizza, lovely slabs of dough that are neither too thick nor too thin, but the perfect balance of springy puffiness and crisp-edged chew. The slices are served at room temperature, and always include a sheet dotted with artichokes, feta, tomatoes and kalamata olives.
