About us

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

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 72 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 Vegas Bajas & Puglia.

We can make all our pizzas gluten free, but we need 8 hours notice (additional 2 charge).

Please let one of our members of staff know if you have any allergen or dietary requirements. As our dishes are handmade in our busy kitchen, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that they are 100% free of allergens or contaminants. For all other allergies please let us know.

What the press say

Geraint Thomas and George North chose it as the place to tuck in after the Tour de France cyclist celebrated his Cardiff homecoming. Don't forget the dough balls!
A fantastic addition to the pizza scene in the capital.
Serving crisp, slightly charred bases with bubbling toppings, it's one not to miss...
Not only was the food great, but the service was also extremely friendly, quick and attentive, despite the quite informal setting. A great addition to the Cardiff pizza scene!
The dough was magnificently puffed up at the edges, golden brown and the thickness, just right. I was shocked at the size, considering the modest price....
We had a great evening and the food was undeniably tasty. They have it so right at The Dough Thrower. The prices are friendly and the food is generous without being excessive in size...
