Pizza at Franco Manca (Westfield Stratford)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Franco Manca's pizza is one of London's pizzarias that gets raving reviews, and I've been wanting to visit. Its first restaurant was located in Brixton underneath the rail arches, and it did so well that it opened a further fifteen branches across London. I visited the branch at Westfield Stratford simply because I was in the area. 


Franco Manca's pizzas are made from slow-rising sourdough bread which take 20 hours to rise. The pizzas are then baked in wood-burning brick ovens built by specialists from Naples, the birthplace of pizza. This type of oven ensures that the bread and crust is perfect and not soggy.


The Franco Manca stall is located on the top level in the foodcourt of Westfield Stratford, so it's a great place to visit as you're pretty much guaranteed a seat somewhere in the foodcourt. 


I ordered the cheese pizza, and the bloke ordered one with salami. I loved the pizza and there was the correct proportion of toppings and cheese to crust, which is a bonus. The crust was also very good; sometimes I leave my crusts, but the pizza was so good that I managed to devour the whole pizza. I would visit again, and I would love to visit one of the actual restaurants instead of the kiosk in Westfield Stratford.
