Pope Francis, who recently lamented he can't slip out and get a pizza like he used to, finally got a pie, albeit one hand-delivered to his popemobile.

Pizza maker Enzo Cacialli had a pie on hand as Francis sped by the Naples waterfront Saturday during his one-day visit to the city famous for its pizza. Cacialli managed to get close enough to the popemobile to make the delivery as the crowd behind him cheered.

Cacialli, whose father made pizza for a visiting President Bill Clinton in 1994, told Naples' Il Mattino that he used yellow tomatoes rather than red to reflect the colors of the Holy See.

He said he was "full of joy that he accepted a pizza straight from my hands."
