Pope Francis Finally Gets His Pizza!

Pope Francis Finally Gets His Pizza! March 23, 2015

Pope Francis gets his pizzaA few weeks ago, in an interview with the Mexican broadcaster Televisa, Pope Francis expressed his wish that he could wander incognito onto the streets of Rome and get a pizza.  “The only thing I’d like to do,” he said

“…is to be able to go out one day without anyone recognizing me and go get a pizza.”

Well, he finally got his wish!  On his visit this week to the Italian city of Naples, a custom-made pizza was delivered to him in the Popemobile by Enzo Cacialli, co-owner of Pizzeria Don Ernesto.  The white and yellow pizza featured yellow cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella.  

A YouTube video shows Cacialli waiting until the last minute, then climbing over a barrier and handing Pope Francis the pizza as his vehicle sped past. The Pope graciously accepted and said, “Thank you.”
