(CNN) – If there is an award for “pilot of the year,” the award should go to the one who bought pizza for the entire plane.

A Frontier Airlines pilot went out of his way to provide the pizza after an already delayed flight ended up diverted because of weather.

The flight from Washington, DC to Denver could not land because of storms, so they were diverted to Wyoming to re-fuel. It was during that two-hour stop that more than 50 pizzas were delivered to the plane.

The flight finally arrived in Denver about five hours late, but who could be mad when they are given free pizza?

So far, the identity of the pilot is not known.
