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.

My favourite gluten free pizza place in town! - the iberico pizza with chilli honey is game changing. The taste was amazing as always - one bit of feedback though, I have to say the base this time didn’t look as good as other visits, it had rough edges and was fairly burnt..... still my favourite pizza place though!

I don’t know why we waited so long to come here!!! The meatball starter was amazing! And the mushroom pizza is to die for. My husband said it was the best pizza he’s ever had. And I agree! Also the lady that served us was lovely. Will definitely be back
