When Enzo Cacialli’s father delivered a pizza to former President Bill Clinton in 1994, the young pizza maker knew he had some pretty big shoes to fill. Fast forward more than two decades later and Cacialli finally got his chance to deliver big.
CNN reports that Pope Francis was driving through Naples on Sunday. Hearing the news, Cacialli took it as an opportunity to hand-deliver a special pie to the Supreme Pontiff himself. The pizza was a special Naples-style thin crust topped with yellow cheery tomatoes. The words “Il Papa” was also written in dough atop the pizza.
Cacialli enthusiastically hopped the fence and handed the Holy Father the pizza himself, in what’s considered one of the most high-profile pizza deliveries in history. Check out the video taken below and see the delivery take place.
