Judging by the pics, he's not running his oven hot enough yet.  It should be hot enough that the crust blisters with little blackened spots all over it before turning brown.  If the crust is a mostly uniform shade of brown, it's taking too long to cook and is likely getting a bit tough.  Perfect neopolitan pizza should have a crisp outside but not be at all tough.  It's tricky to get right and it takes a while to master the oven - hopefully this place will get there soon, they certainly seem to have their heart in the right place.

Monopod,

It sounds like you love your pizza as much as we do. We'd love to have you stop in and taste our interpretation of neapolitan pizza and then decide. Pictures may be worth a thousand words, but tasting is believing. Hope to see you soon and hear your thoughts!

@monopod Can't help but feel like the pizzeria is not worthy of the Ferraro oven.  It looks like the pizzas and menu are not Neapolitan.  Somebody help this guy!

@kah655 Challenge accepted!  To give you an idea of what I mean, do a Google image search for "Motorino Pizza" (disqus apparently won't let me include a link, sorry).  But I'm always open to being convinced!

@gustov @monopod Sorry your not as high as we are but, we are one mile above sea level. As other people in the area know baking is different here and A-Town could push the temp but dough is raw in the middle and burnt on the out-side. Please come by and enjoy the elevation.
