Special Order—Subject to Availability


Franco Manca's owners, Giuseppe Mascoli and Bridget Hugo, know that the best pizza in Italy comes from Naples and therefore they have gone back to Giuseppe's Neopolitan roots, where making pizza is all about simple things (bread, tomato, cheese) and simple steps (make the dough, let it rise, flatten it, add topping, bake in the oven), all using the best ingredients to produce pizza of exceptional quality.
Aimed at the home cook who doesn't have a traditional woodburning oven, Giuseppe and Bridget have tailored their recipes so you can use an iron pan or a heavy baking tray and still get great results.
Their famous, slow-rising sourdough recipe produces a soft and easily digestible crust, there are 50-60 recipes with seasonal variations, plus fritti (fried starters) and salads and also tips and techniques for making your own flavoured oils, preserving your tomatoes and curing your own meat. Without a doubt, this is the closest you'll come to the real deal in your home kitchen, and in your personal quest for perfect pizza.
