Squaremeal Review of Franco Manca Balham ?

Since opening in 2008, this miniature artisan enterprise has built a cult following – thanks to the quality of its wood-fired sourdough pizzas, which are cooked in a special Tufac brick oven imported from Naples. Locals are attracted by the rock-bottom prices and meticulously sourced ingredients, so it’s no wonder that queues form around the block for a taste of Franco’s delicious offerings. Just six different versions are available, topped with various combinations of tomatoes (imported from Salerno), Gloucester Old Spot ham, sausages from Brindisa, organic mozzarella and ricotta produced at Alham Wood in Somerset, fresh herbs, mushrooms and the like. Charcuterie platters and panuozzi (flame-baked bread with various toppings) play a supporting role, while drinks range from a pair of Piedmontese organic wines (red or white) to Sam Smith’s organic blond beer.

    Yesterday I had one of the greatest pizza experiences of my whole life. My brother and I were on a hungover trip to Balham to check out the charity shops, which incidentally, were mind-blowingly expensive – what’s happened since I’ve been gone?! And what do I see but a new branch of the famous sourdough pizzeria, Franco Manca, shining like a beacon luring me in.
