About The Dough Thrower
Ben’s passion and love for pizza is an understatement, growing up in Switzerland in the family bakery he learnt the craft of making dough. Over the past 20 years developing his grand fathers recipe, he decided to leave his career in professional sport to fulfil his long term ambition of owning a pizza restaurant.
Move one year down the line after the successful pop up in Ogmore-by-sea, Ben, his cousin Pete and friend Alex took that idea and are proud to present - THE DOUGH THROWER.
Our Dough is a blend of HIGH GRADE TIP 00 FLOUR from Naples. We add MINERAL SALTS from Himalaya, premium award winning olive oils from the PICUAL OLIVES from Spain & sweeten with a TOUCH OF HONEY. These ingredients are left to ferment for 96 hours before our dough is ready to go. Each pizza then begins with our own special blend The Dough Thrower tomato sauce using BITTERSWEET TOMATOES from Naples & Puglia.
I have eaten here many times with always good experience. Visited this Sunday with friends who haven’t been there before. We were there for over an hour before our pizza came to us and even ended up cancelling one as they forgot to make it...luckily ordered my 3year old pizza as soon as we came in. Most of the starters were not available but only told 15mins after we put our order through. We should have been told straight away. It seemed as if the takeaway orders were more of a priority than the customers in the restaurant. Our good experience unfortunately was not the same for our friends that joined us.
Good service good food
The pizzas were absolutely delicious -whether the crispy yet chewy base, the quality of the ingredients, or the imaginative & tasty topping combinations. Added to that, the service was really friendly, room itself stylish and funky & the atmosphere was relaxed yet buzzy. It all added up to a fab night out. I wish all neighbourhood restaurants were this good!
Had a lovely evening. Thank you.
Lovely place to eat and socialise.
Great pizzas, up there with some of the best I have ever eaten (and i’ve eaten plenty!!). Service was extremely attentive. They oils also accommodate my son’s allergies, not only by providing alternatives but also reassuring me that food would be prepared in a contamination free zone. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service. Very friendly Slightly cramped seating.
A lovely, friendly atmosphere with wonderful staff. The food was absolutely beautiful. We had the buffalo wings and meatballs for starter which were out of this world. I had the Xmas special pizza, easily the best pizza I have ever eaten with dough lighter than air. We will definitely be back.
Food and service both perfect here as always.
Great service & lovely good. A lovely place. Thanks!

Lovely place by the park! It had been recommended to us and we weren't diasppointed. Loved the 'tangy' garlic dip with the dough sticks! See you next time we're in Cardiff! Tim & family
Great food and great service. We had a really lovely meal here in a really relaxed atmosphere.
We recently moved into the area and this was our first visit. Absolutely loved the food, service and atmosphere. What a find! And within walking distance of our new home. We're looking forward to our next visit.
Always enjoy here, food and wine so delicious and the service excellent. What more can I say?!!
