Pope Francis Accepts Hand-Delivered Pizza From Popemobile
It was one special delivery.
Pope Francis toured through Naples on Sunday and got quite a surprise from one man in the throngs of people crowding the streets to catch a glimpse of the Catholic leader.
Pizzeria owner Enzo Cacialli jumped over the barricade to hand the Pope a pizza made especially for him, taking to heart what the Pope said once in an interview, "The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza."
Cacialli's pizza was a thin crust pie that was personalized with "II Papa" spelled out in dough on top. In a reference to the Vatican flag, it was topped with yellow cherry tomotoes.
The whole thing was captured on video showing Cacialli hoping over the barricade, shouting, "Papa! Papa!' as the Pope reached down from his Popemobile to take the pizza.
Cacialli said, "I gave him the pizza and with a smile he said, "Thank you."
The pizza maker learned his craft from his father, who he said made a pizza for President Bill Clinton when he visited Naples in 1994.
