Franco MancaCredited with sparking "a food revolution in South London" by the Telegraph, Franco Manco has a distinct brand of slow-rise sourdough pizzas that people can't get enough of. Expanding from the original outlet in Brixton Market to their latest restaurant in Broadway Market, celebrated pizzeria Franco Manca has become a chain of pizza restaurants with restaurants in Chiswick - the only Franco Manca to take reservations - Northcote Road, Balham, Westfield Stratford, and Tottenham Court Road. Sourdough pizza topped with ingredients like fresh mozzarella - made daily on Lloyd Green's organic farm in Somerset; tomatoes from small co-op of organic producers in Italy; and ham and sausages made in partnership with David Tomlin from the Rare Bread Survival Trust give Franco Manca pizzas the edge. An on-site wood-burning brick oven ensures pizzas are cooked at 500C, sealing the flavours and the moisture of the crust. Wash down with wine by Ottavio Rube, one of the initiators of organic agriculture in Italy. If you think that all this attention to detail is going to cost you, think again. The prices are low enough to eat here everyday.
