Pope Francis received a piece of Neapolitan culture on Sunday in the form of a special made pizza, while visiting the Italian city on Saturday.

Enzo Cacialli, a Naples pizza maker whose father famously served Bill Clinton pizza in 1994, prepared the special pie on the occasion of Francis’ arrival. The pizza maker jumped over the security barricade in order to place the pie in the Pontiff’s hands as he rode atop the Pope mobile.

Cacialli was inspired to make the pizza after he lamented to Mexican TV station Televista that he could no longer go out for a pizza unrecognized. “The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza,” Francis told the station.

The Naples-style pie features a crust topped with yellow cherry tomatoes and rich buffalo mozzarella with the writing “W il Papa” in pizza dough, which translates to “Long live the Pope.”

The proud pizza owner promptly posted photos and videos of the exclusive pizza delivery on the pizzeria’s social media accounts.
