Dough Co. Pizza to open new Ankeny location in 2023 [Video]

Dough Co. Pizza announced in a Facebook post that a new location would be coming to Ankeny in “early 2023” within the Plaza Shoppes at Prairie Trail.

ANKENY, Iowa — A Des Moines pizzeria is expanding its horizon and bringing New York-style slices and pies to Ankeny early next year. 

The restaurant first served up slices of pizza in the summer of 2020 near Drake University in Des Moines. 

The menu includes pizza — with vegan and gluten pizza options available — alongside classics like sandwiches, wings and more. 

“We’re excited to be bringing Dough Co. Pizza to another vibrant walkable neighborhood in the metro,” said Dough Co. Pizza co-owner Alec Davis. “We’ve designed the brand new space to be welcoming for all while also reflecting our values and brand.” 

The Ankeny restaurant will seat 50 people inside, have an outdoor patio and deliver within city limits.
