Pizza in Naples

My wife and I are planning a trip to Naples. Any suggestions for pizzerias we should visit while we are there?

Thank you,

Frank

Frank.. we were in the region last year but avoided Napels for the traffic. We had the best pizza of my life at a walk in place in Sorrento. I could not believe it. What struck me as I thought about crust, why, what.. was the tomatoes. They're the key that I can't replicate at home all else being equal. I think anywhere you try will amaze you.. Enjoy and have a slice for me.. !
