Possibly one of the best tasting pizzas in Covent Garden!
Franco Manca is a gem amidst all the amazing restaurants in Covent Garden and what I love about FM is their simple menu, amazing prices and great tasting sourdough stone baked pizza. I’ve gone so many times for lunch and dinner, they should know my order by heart now!
As a vegetarian, it’s nice to see options on the menu and FM doesn’t disappoint. They always have vegetarian specials and on there are a lot of options for vegetarians AND VEGANS on the menu! I always opt for the no.1 which is the tomato, garlic and oregano pizza. I tend to go for the cheese-less pizza because it’s much healthier and it just tastes better. PLUS, the waiter (who was from Naples) told us that cheese-less pizza is the original pizza. Apparently all the other fancy meat and fish pizza is a new modern thing XD
When the pizza first comes out, it smells divine! The crust is soft and doughy and the pizza itself is on a thin base so you don’t feel like you’re eating just bread! The only downside is that the pizza turns cold really quickly so it doesn’t taste as good as the first bite 🙁 Nevertheless FM is one of my favourite spots in London and I would definitely reccommend it. My only wish is for FM to have ketchup on the side- I’m probably offending the entirety of the pizza-loving population but the crust tastes so good with ketchup!! Sorry not sorry.
Also, I would like to dedicate this post as a thank you to my friend (pictured above) for being so great to me and for being my food buddy throughout the year. I’ve been to some of the best places and had the best time because of him and I am beyond thankful. I shall miss you! x
All other pizzas range from £5- £8
