If you can bake biscuits well, does it stand to reason that you can also make pizza dough? The model has worked for a couple of businesses in town, including the Basil Doc's Pizza at 330 Holly Street and the Fat Sully's/Denver Biscuit Co. combo. Mic's Craft Kitchen is giving it a go, too, firing up the oven in the morning for buttermilk biscuit sandwiches before moving to pizza and calzones for lunch and dinner. Mic's is now open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
