The best pizza restaurant in London (in our opinion!)

Looking for the best pizza restaurant in London? Well, you have come to the right place. as self-confessed pizza lovers, we know a thing or two about where to get your pizza fix in good old London town.

Franco Manca is the bomb. There is no getting away from it. This slice of Italian heaven has been around since the ’80s and was a popular pizzeria in Brixton. Its Italian heritage make it a surefire winner for the yummy crown of the best pizza restaurant in London.

A man called Franco was the original owner before selling the business onto friends back in 2008. Like good friends do, they paid homage to his reputation and renamed the pizzeria Franco Manca (this means Franco is missing in Italian – how sweet!). Thanks to their love of Italian food and skills in artisan baking, they skyrocketed Franco Manca into pizza stardom, resulting in many UK neighbourhoods having a tasty Franco Manca on their doorstep.

Why is Franco Manca the best pizza in London?

Want to know why we think it’s the best pizza restaurant in London? One of the main reasons is the price; their pizzas start from £5! Yes, you heard right. You get a pizza that packs a punch and for a great price too. Tasty, authentic and reasonably priced.

Another reason is their promise to use small producers. Whether that’s in the UK or Italy, their seasonal ingredients are sourced from small scale suppliers leaving you in the knowledge that you’re supporting a good cause. Small suppliers but big taste.

You’ll always be hit with tantalizing daily specials and they have meat, veggie and vegan options. There is a menu for all. We enjoyed two starters and two pizzas at their Victoria brand for around £25. An excellent lunch or dinner option in our opinion.
