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.

We’ve been a number of times before and have had the best pizzas. However last nights were disappointing, not in terms of the quality of the ingredients, but by the fact that both of our pizzas were undercooked and doughy. We would have mentioned it to the Spanish guy (very friendly) serving but it was busy and because of Covid we didn’t want to make a fuss.

Young waitress on her own did so well as it was busy! Food exceptional, lovely chef came out to give out pizza to us. Brilliant customer service, considering they are working in difficult times with a mask on. Well done to everyone!! We love coming here! Best pizza in town 👌🏻
