I remember a time where I was complaining about the lack of good pizzerias in Brighton. Now we have a really decent choice, so much so, that you have the luxury of being particularly particular. Along with a small handful of new independent places, the small chains have also expanded, so you're never too far from a good slice. But, of course, there is still a complete plethora of pizza that I wouldn't touch with yours.
The issue was that the oven was too cold, so the pizza cooking time had to increase, therefore contributing to a dried out dough. On the other hand, Franco Manca, to cope with the demand, sometimes have it too hot which is why the dough in the cornicone, the thickest part, is sometimes a little raw.
It was great to to see La Mucca Nera gelato for dessert though. They have superb gelato, made down the road in St James' Street and I'll often be found in there post dinner with a scoop of their proper Bronte pistachio or an Aperol and bad Italian TV on. I love it.
