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.

The pizza was absolutely amazing however the service wasn’t great. Our orders were not taken quickly and we were not asked if we wanted drinks/sauces/sides or asked how our meal was. The staff also were socialising with each other rather than attending to customers. Also the back door was continually left open despite us requesting for it to be closed, which wasn't ideal in February! Overall the restaurant itself looks really good and the food was fantastic but there needs to be some work on service.

Beautiful venue! Felt really special. The food was devine and had a really good quality to it. Starters were very tasty and the whole menu had a lot of choice. The staff were very helpful too. I would definitely come here again.

Delicious food, served in a timely manner despite being very busy! Unfortunately ran out of pino and house wine! Kind to serve the only remaining white at pino price! Will be back!

This place is simply incredible, the pizzas, food and the staff make this place feel so comfortable that I want to eat here every night!! The dough and their sauce just tastes so good I can’t really put written words into how it makes me feel, all I can say it’s a must try and I have been visiting since they opened! I Can’t. Wait to come back!

My fourth time visiting - Great quality delicious pizzas! The gluten free pizzas are so tasty, the dough tastes exactly like normal dough so you can’t even tell the difference. Cant wait for the next dough thrower :)

I find it hard to take children out to restaurants, it was very impressive to be in an atmosphere where you welcomed my kids even though they can be little monkeys at times. Your staffs were fantastic and made my family’s night all the better with their friendliness

Pizza and the buffalo wings were very nice. However very close seating, so it feels like it you are sitting with the people next to you. Also the drinks menu on the tables was out of date

Nice place, food was ok nothing to write home about, wine was good. Waitress was a little run off her feet and lacked training, owner (I think) was speaking to one large table and ignored the rest of the restaurant. Other staff seemed to be making pizzas or chatting in the kitchen area rather than helping in the floor. Bit gutted really as had heard good things and it always looked good through the window...maybe it was just post Christmas blues...or maybe resting on good reviews...
