A South Florida pizza delivery man fought back with the only weapon he had when a customer pulled a gun on him: a large, steaming hot pepperoni pizza.

Police said 40-year-old Pizza Hut delivery man Eric Lopez Devictoria threw the pie at the gunman Wednesday afternoon, then ran for safety.

Police said at least one shot was fired as Devictoria fled, but he was uninjured.

Three teenagers have been arrested and charged with armed robbery in the case.
