Today, it’s back to Carb overload for a trip to the original Franco Manca in Brixton Market. This tiny, tiny (why are all the good pizza places so small) south London—yes, I crossed the river— gem has a massive following, and with good reason. Chewy blackened crust gives way to a soft, yet cooked middle.
Get there before opening to snag one of the handful of seats inside, or watch others devour pizzas while you endure a long wait. You could always tailor your pizza toppings during that time.
There’s another location in Chiswick with more (hopefully) to follow soon.
