Dolce Sicilia Italian Bakery

Cassandra Kotnik
This Italian bakery in Wheat Ridge turns out Sicilian cookies, biscotti and cannoli, plus savory dishes like calzones and pizza, to name just a few. While 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 — Dolce Sicilia will make you reconsider your pizza choices. If you sidestep Sicilian pizza because of its heft or breadiness, know that this little spot's pan pizzas are 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 version dotted with artichokes, feta, tomatoes and Kalamata olives.
