Pope Francis offered Neapolitan pizza to 1,500 people which was served on Sunday afternoon in the atrium of the Paul VI Hall following the canonization of Mother Teresa.
Invitees were the poor and needy, especially from the houses of the Sisters of Mother Teresa. They come from all over Italy including Milan, Bologna, Florence, Naples and all the houses in Rome.
The lunch guests traveled at night in coaches to attend the lunch which was served by around 250 Sisters of Mother Teresa, 50 Brothers of the congregation for men and other volunteers.
Those attending the lunch were also invited to attend the Canonization Mass.
With such a high number of people invited to the lunch, the pizza was prepared by a staff of 20 people who brought three of their own mobile ovens to cook in.
