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.
popped in on the recommendation of a friend and wasn't disappointed ..... will definitely be going back :)
Absolutely the best pizza I’ve eaten. Definitely going back ...soom
Great food at great place with great service!
Really enjoyed our pizza, great food,great service, second time we have been and will be returning again.
We LOVE the Dough Thrower! I booked a table on line which didn't go through but I was immediately helped and given a table although the restaurant was full and busy! Really appreciated that cause I took a friend for the 1st time. Thank you again for an excellent evening! Gerda
Overall the experience was pleasant - the only criticism I have is that the garlic pizza bread stack was not a stack - it was brought out like a pizza and also a lot smaller than what was brought out on my previous visit in october The service was great and food tasted great
Hi, Sorry about the garlic stack, we had a brand new chef on that night, which was learning our menu. we look forward to seeing you soon, next time we will ensure its double the size :-)
Outstanding artisan pizzas with great staff and service Will be back time and again
Meal to celebrate our sons 10th birthday. The dough thrower is his favourite pizza restaurant. Lovely table, food, service. Whole night was once again amazing. This little gem has a special charm that all pizza lovers must experience. Thank you
One of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. The smoked pulled chicken was absolutely gorgeous and I’m gutted I don’t live in Cardiff so cant go back sooner! The garlic doughballs special was also really tasty and they have a wide selection of dips too! The staff were so friendly, couldn’t recommend this place enough. Very good value for money too x
Great pizza !
We absolutely loved it. Have been before so knew what to expect. Food goes without saying, is delicious. The dough is perfectly cooked with a great choice of toppings. I have to mention the toilet.....its the nicest one in Cardiff. There was a Yankee candle flickering, the room was warm (always a bonus) and real towels (and plenty of them). My daughter and I wanted to do a little work at our table and there was no problem at all taking a table for 4 even if there were only two of us. Good luck in the Cardiff Life Finals!
Great pizza and very friendly service! Will definitely be going back again (and again)
Some of the best pizza in wales, and definitely the best gluten free. These guys are incredible at catering for any food intolerances, even complicated ones. They really go above and beyond and the food is always so beautiful.
Lovely friendly place, great atmosphere and great Pizza.
5* service, 5* food, 5* restaurant! Can’t fault you guys! Can’t wait to come back!
Simply the best, better than all the rest.
The BEST pizza I’ve ever had !! Just amazing !
Very tasty food served with a smile.
Lush as always!
Second visit in two weeks - still excellent, can’t fault anything at all. Well done guys!
First visit but definitely not the last!
We had a great time! Definitely will be returning!
Have eaten at The Dough Thrower twice now and on each occasion the experience has been first class. The food is excellent with pizzas that have got to be amongst the very best outside of Napoli! The meatballs are also not to be missed!
Lovely little restaurant with a nice choice of pizzas and starters. Meatballs were delicious, wish I'd ordered my own portion and not to share. Pizza was lovely, yet couldn't finish it all. Will definitely be back!
