There is a huge number of pizzerias in London and if you want proper, straightforward Italian pizza, then you are probably better off going elsewhere. However, you can hardly argue with two pizzas for a tenner (F&S always have offers on – check their website) and I haven't come across anywhere else that does the kind of pizza toppings that they do.
Today was my third visit to F&S and frankly, the best so far. The dough is quite different to a classic Italian pizza base; thicker and more breadlike but still quite light. The theme of the menu is geographical; the pizzas are influenced by the different continents (Africa, Australiasia, The Amercias etc.) and the options are quite varied. This kind of pizza isn't going to appeal to everyone but the choices at F&S make a real change. I had the ‘Lombok’ (prawns, hoi sin sauce, mozzarella, red peppers and spring onions) and it was really tasty.
The restaurant itself is usually busy (there are often queues so they must be doing something right) and because of the minimalist decor, it can be quite noisy. If you're bored of your normal pizza place and go armed with a voucher, then it if definitely worth coming here.
