Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

As the name suggests, Dough's philosophy begins with the very basis of good pizza: a simple but carefully judged mixture of flour, salt and yeast allowed to rise for 72 hours. There are 22 pizzas to choose from on the extensive menu. As well as the usual offerings blending classic Italian flavours, there's a few pizzas that really stand out, such as the Italian-Scottish hybrid scozia, combining Stornoway black pudding, haggis, pancetta, egg and mozzarella, and offerings with pork belly or beef ribs, both slow-cooked in oaky Innis & Gunn beer. If you're after something extra, then buttermilk chicken poppers are particularly tasty with a parmesan aioli dip. There's also a choice of seven flatbreads (from smoked mackerel to carbonara) and a variety of crisp salads. Delivery is available from this store or from the newer opening in South Clerk Street, which is just as well since seating is very limited. A shame, really, as it's a beautifully decorated wee space.
