South London pizza chain Mamma Dough head to Deptford

South London pizza chain Mamma Dough are looking to open a new branch at Deptford High Street.

The company currently has branches in Peckham, Brixton, Sydenham, Ladywell, South Norwood and Honor Oak Park.

The chosen locale in Deptford is the former Salvation Army charity shop just north of the station.

Mamma Dough focus on sourdough pizza and I guess could be thought of as a junior Franco Manca – who also started in south London before expanding nationally. The first Franco Manca site was Brixton in 2008. They opened a branch in Greenwich town centre this year.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    It is sad to see the Salvation Army charity shop on Deptford High Street closed. As the charity do amazing work for vulnerable people.

    However, I think Mamma Dough Pizza will be an asset to Deptford High Street as we fight to save our High Streets.

      It is indeed sad to lose somewhere else that served the community, the job centre was another, in favour of a ‘fake’ Italian eatery. Still, it will be somewhere else to which the trendies can flock at the weekend.

    In Charlton at Charlton House it was recently launched L’Arte della Pizza, an authentic italian pizza restaurant which is becoming quickly very popular among the locals. It is open only fridays to sundays. Food and atmosphere are faboulous and prices are reasonable too.

    The pandemic has dealt a blow to Mamma Dough’s plans for Deptford. I don’t see it happening now.
