King Dough is a place where the act of making pizza is a true craft, driven by quality. Our unique, special, house-made creations are as real as it gets. Pizza is pizza; but at the end of the day you can still do something special with it!
We are located in downtown Bloomington, Indiana on the north side of The Square, and just opened a new location Indianapolis’ Holy Cross neighborhood. Everything is made fresh, in-house, daily.
We offer a selection of wood-fired pizzas ranging from vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free pies, to classic favorites. Sized at 13-inches, they are big enough to split with a friend, or to take home leftovers all to yourself.
Our salads are second to none - we prepare them with enough fresh greens, veggies, fruit, meats, and cheeses that they can stand as a meal on their own. Our appetizers, including house-made meatballs, offer great pairings to all of our pizzas. Last but not least, we prepare gelato and sorbet in house. The flavors are always changing, but the flavor is always there.
King Dough was born from being part of a successful family of restaurants in our home state of Arkansas. We craved having a space that was a bit more 'ours' and started King Dough initially by putting a clay-top over the back of a truck bed and running it as a food truck. Bloomington inspired us to offer something to the culinary scene we thought was missing, and now here we are!
We have a lot to be thankful for, but also think the future is bright for KD. People are responding well to our focus on high-quality food, great servers, and being a cozy little spot to hang with friends. We can take it further, but not so far that the romance would be lost. Truly, we just love being involved at every level of making a great experience for people: from stretching mozz and kneading dough by hand, to crafting the music/art/tv environment in a restaurant that we haven't seen in other places. The happiness of our customers keeps us seeking that excellence.
