One of the best vegan pizzas in London 🌿💕

Not being a vegan restaurant, I went into Franco Manca with low expectations but wow 🤩 the flavours on this pizza, textures of the cheese and how fresh it is are just incredible!!
Sometimes you have a bit of a wait to get seated at Franco Manca on the weekend as it’s so popular but it’s definitely worth it and if you ask, they’ll be able to tell you what wines are vegan too 💚

I tried to order a pizza with vegetables to be told all I could have was a pizza with tomatoes. Then I was offered the vegan special which was on the specials board with no list of toppings...it was so spicy that it was inedible. I was in pain. I notified the waitress who just said "I know" and took my plate away. That was it...very disappointed. Won't be returning.

Pros: Vegan cheese
