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.

Good friendly service. Enjoyed starters. Pizzas very good although We could not taste or see anchovies on one. Usually they are clearly visible. Suggest they are placed on top not blended into sauce as was explained . Hiwever, Good value and we enjoyed the wine and the meal.

We have visited the dough thrower around 8 times, which has prompted me to write this review. The food is outstanding, they put so much effort into every dish and the feel of the place and the atmosphere is fantastic, the weekends are crazy busy so we like to go during the week, and even then it’s a very busy place so please book! The staff are great, the kitchen staff are a joy to watch and the owner is so passionate and is doing what he knows best, amazing food, great athomsphere and perfect customer service! I simply can’t recommend this place anymore, please go and try it out.... Great job Guys!

Pizzas at their best with some delicious, innovative toppings. Excellent service. Wine was good too. We only had a glass but will get a bottle next time.
