Franco Manca opened their doors on Mosley Street last week and for their first two weeks, they'll be offering pizzas for just £5, as well as donating food to local homeless charities.
Bringing Neapolitan pizza to the city of Manchester, the pizzeria has also pledged to help local communities by donating to local homeless shelters and food banks, one pizza for every pizza enjoyed by customers at the new restaurant.
The initiative will run for two weeks from opening; 26th September- 9th October 2019 and the team are keen to hear from anyone at local homeless shelters and foodbanks that wish to request a donation.
In addition, to celebrate the pizzeria’s opening, from 26th September- 9th October 2019, Franco Manca will be offering all dine-in customers their delicious sourdough pizzas for just £5.00 – the price of the first pizza on their menu.
Customers will be able to order one of the daily specials or choose from seven regular meat, veg and vegan pizza options, including fan-favourite ‘the no. 4’, which features roasted cured ham, wild mushrooms and a mix of mozzarella and buffalo ricotta.
With fresh sourdough handmade on site every day and natural Italian wine, Franco Manca was the first pizzeria to offer sourdough pizza in the UK.
The slow-rising sourdough, unique to Franco Manca, dates back to the late 18th century. First procured by the pizzeria’s founder, Giuseppe Mascoli, near the city of Naples, the recipe still honours the ingredients and methods that make the age-old style of Neapolitan pizza unique, delicious and world-renound.
