The Pizza place in Northcote

I’m sure you know about Franco Manca. The place is one of the top pizzerias in London. Authentic Neapolitan style pizza. I still remember the days when you had to queue in Brixton to get a table for the slow rising sourdough pizza. Well those days might be over as the Manca’s empire is expanding, 4 locations in London, the original in Brixton Market, one in Westfield in Stratford, another one in Chiswick, and finally one in Northcote nearby Clapham Junction.

We went to the Northcote place, got a table quite easy, no fuzz, same friendly service, same produce quality, and same award winning pizza recipe. For starter we got a burrata Pugliese, excellent quality, fresh, great flavour, simply a creamier mozzarella.

Then the pizzas, we got a Meat special. Smoked buffalo mozzarella, spinach, Gloucester old spot pancetta, Kalamata black olives, and Marisol added some wild mushrooms. I got the cured organic chorizo, one dry the other semi, some mozzarella, and olives.

Both pizzas were amazing, the flavours were there, same consistency as the original place in Brixton. Just what you would expect. 

Excellent pie
Pizza reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Glasses” 

Jerry: Ah, see, they told me they'd be back in a minute and they lied
Amy: You can't thrust anyone
Jerry: No you can't. Now let's cut the ball, sister! You think I don't know about you swapping spit with somebody yesterday on Columbus Avenue?

Amy: What are you talking about?
Jerry: Look, my friend saw you
Amy: Saw me? With who?
Jerry: You tell me
Amy: There's nothing to tell
Jerry: There isn't?
Amy: No
Jerry: Oh! All right, want to get some pizza?
