Doug and Lori Horn opened Dough Pizzeria Napoletana in San Antonio, Texas in November of 2007.
Doug and Lori have extensive schooling and experience in both the hotel and restaurant business. When they decided they wanted to open a pizzeria, it was clear who would do what - Doug would run the front/back of the house and Lori would assist in the front and concentrate on the marketing. It was a perfect match!
When they thought about what type of pizzeria they wanted the restaurant to be, they focused on Italy, specifically Naples, Italy. They knew they wanted to bring the oven from Italy, the menu to be focused on Southern Italian cuisine and the wines - all Italian. Whether people grew up in Italy, traveled there, or just love Neapolitan style pizza, they wanted to make Dough everyone's go to place for their pizza craving!
When it came time to name the restaurant, the restaurant essentially named itself. Notice Doug's name - both first and last. If you run it all together and then separate it, his name becomes: DOUGHorn or DOUGH! It was meant to be!
