Napoletana Pizzeria in Mountain View

Just thought you guys would like to learn about this little place- if it was for me, I would have never set foot in a strip-mall joint called "Napoletana Pizzeria" smack on El Camino, with lights so low it looks like it is closed from the street. However, a friend of a friend of a friend (all from Italy) recommended it, and so I headed out there with my girlfriends (all from Italy as well), and we were shocked and surprised to find pretty good pizza Napoli style in the middle of suburbia!
The dough is chewy and elastic, the way it is supposed to be- not too thin (Roma style), not too thick (New York style), with the right amount of black blistering from the wood-fired oven, and the toppings are good- maybe not exceptional, but solidly in the pretty good category! Just a few pizza on the menu, we loved the Carcerato with delicious ricotta hidden in the crust (just around the edge), the Cafone (white with broccoli rabe and sausage) and the prosciutto e funghi, really well done without being too heavy. But more than anything, the dough is really, really good.
