Review on Franco Manca

Organic sourdough pizzas are the name of the game at this enterprising little joint tucked away near Brixton's covered market. The decor is nothing to speak of, but this is a little gem in its own right, run by a keen team with ex-pat Italian owner Giuseppe Manca at the helm.

The pizzas are made with organic Italian flour, slow-risen for 20 hours before being blasted in an specially imported, artisan brick oven that can bake the delicious frisbees at around 500oC for around two minutes. The results are perfectly cooked through, with a gorgeous crisp crust ('cornicione') that should definitely not be discarded. There are six versions, all based on impeccably sourced ingredients, from organic Mozzarella and Ricotta from Alham Farm, Somerset to chorizo from Brindisa. Prices are rock-bottom - and that extends to free filtered tap water, organic lemonade, Hepworth organic beer and organic wine.

See their website for a list of all their other branches.
