There's only one thing better than sourdough pizza, that’s free sourdough pizza. We have just launched our new loyalty app which allows you to collect stamps and redeem them for free pizza!

About us

Once upon a pizza

In 1983 Francos was a pizzeria in Brixton Market owned by, you guessed it, a guy called Franco. By 2008 he had had enough and asked his friend Giuseppe Mascoli if he wanted to take it over. Giuseppe and his friend Bridget Hugo, an artisan baker, took it over calling it Franco Manca, (Italian for “Franco is missing”) in homage to Franco’s hard work.

A closer look at our ingredients

Good food takes time. That’s why, since opening our first pizzeria in Brixton Market in 2008, we’ve championed slow-rising sourdough pizza and properly sourced, small supplier, seasonal ingredients. When you eat at Franco Manca, you support people working close to the land. Small farms = Big taste It’s good to know where the things on your plate come from.
