Earlier this month, Pope Francis said all he wanted to do was “go to a pizzeria for a pizza” without being recognized. A pizza shop owner noted that the pope liked pizza and pulled off an epic delivery Sunday (March 22).
Employees of Pizzeria Don Ernesto in Naples, Italy, posted pictures of a pizza they baked for the pope on Facebook.
The personal pie was made with provolone, mozzarella and ricotta cheese and read “Il Papa” in bread sticks.
As the popemobile made its way down a Naples street, restaurant co-owner Enzo Cacialli hand-delivered the pizza to the pope, ABC reported.
One of the pizza shop owners posted a video to YouTube that shows Francis taking the pizza through open doors of the popemobile.
The caption says, “The delivery of our pizza to Pope Francis fills us with joy and emotion. The one yesterday will remain a date unforgettable for us … Forever!!!”
