— -- This restaurant pulled off the ultimate delivery.

Employees with Pizzeria Don Ernesto in Naples, Italy, had heard that Pope Francis enjoys pizza, so the restaurant prepared a pie: a white and yellow pizza featuring yellow cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella.

Restaurant co-owner Enzo Cacialli delivered the pizza to the pontiff Sunday while Pope Francis was riding in the Popemobile. Video of the exchange, which was posted to YouTube, shows Cacialli climbing over a barrier, standing near the Popemobile, and handing Pope Francis the pizza as his vehicle drove past. Onlookers cheered and Cacialli clapped and pumped his fist.

Co-owner Roberto Biscardi told ABC News that the pope graciously accepted.

"I think he was just joking. He said, 'Thank you.' How can I say in English ... 'I'll have it later,'" Biscardi said.
