Pizza

Franco Manca is the gold star, the golden goose, and the Goldman Sachs of London’s pizzerias. Sure, the toppings are wonderful in their simplicity, but the real star here is the base. Left to rise for 20 hours, spun on the palms of 'za masters, and then blast-cooked for 40 seconds at 500 degrees C, the sourdough here holds a fresh, natural aroma and emerges from the Tufae brick oven with a smoke-speckled underside.
