montanara

mountain style, or fried pizza

Alla montanara can mean any number of things; often it implies meat (sausage, pancetta, etc.) and/or wild mushrooms; similar to alla boscaiola.

In Naples, it's specifically a little fried pizza: thick, yeasty dough, usually with just a simple tomato sauce and cheese on top.
