Happy #NationalPizzaDay – 5 of the best deals in London today

It’s one of the best days of the year. National Pizza Day!

It’s a chance to gouge on pizza, and not even feel bad about it. Pizza is a worldwide favourite, but no where more than London… Well, apart from Italy of course.

We’re lucky to have hundreds, if not thousands of pizza joints, take away stores and bespoke pop ups serving tasty based with toppings baked.

If you’re looking for a bite to celebrate the big day today, we’ve got some ideas…

You can book your place at 2.30pm or 4.00pm by emailing your name, number and party size To celebrate the big day, wish one of the Franco Manca team members a ‘Happy National Pizza Day’ and receive an Aperol Spritz on the house!

Pizza Express

Italian inspired pizza chain Pizza Express are doing something a bit different this National Pizza Day. They’re matching people up based on their favourite pizza toppings for a saucy date.

The restaurant chain has just trialed a new concept called the Love Booth, where people are matched up with potential dates based entirely on their shared favourite pizza toppings. They started by asking for volunteers for the experiment on Facebook, and were inundated with responses from pizza-loving singles.
