One of the passengers sent KUSA-TV photos of flight attendants passing out pizza.

The flight originated in Washington, D.C., and was bound for Denver when a storm forced the flight to be diverted to Cheyenne and delayed for two hours.

All the food on board the plane was reportedly gone, so the pilot decided to order pizzas for everyone. Each row got its own pie.

The plane reportedly then departed at 10:30 p.m. for Denver.
