Antonino Esposito had a vision for our new No. 7 – ‘A full meal’. It's our latest guest pizza with Ferrarelle naturally sparkling water. It's got Yorkshire fennel sausage (rare breed, free range and rich with flavour), mozzarella, tomatoes from Gragnano and vitamin-rich, fibre-packed lentils.
You can enjoy our pizza with principles all over the UK, and even in Italy. Dough made fresh on site everyday with specially selected seasonal ingredients. Search our pizzerias to find your nearest branch. Always eat your crusts.
In 1983 Francos was a pizzeria in Brixton Market owned by, you guessed it, a guy called Franco. By 2008 he had had enough and asked his friend Giuseppe Mascoli if he wanted to take it over. Giuseppe and his friend Bridget Hugo, an artisan baker, took it over calling it Franco Manca, (Italian for “Franco is missing”) in homage to Franco’s hard work.
Good food takes time. That’s why, since opening our first pizzeria in Brixton Market in 2008, we’ve championed slow-rising sourdough pizza and properly sourced, small supplier, seasonal ingredients. When you eat at Franco Manca,
you support people working close to the land. Small farms = Big taste
It’s good to know where the things
on your plate come from.
