During Monday’s episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” guest star Tina Fey was surprised with her favorite pizza.Fey, of Upper Darby, was presented with a box of Pica’s Pizza, the rectangular pizza that’s a family tradition in Upper Darby.
“We actually had a fun little thing delivered from Upper Darby, Pennsylvania,” said host Fallon as he pulled out a box of Pica’s famous tomato pie.
“What!” Fey responded. “What’s this!? … This pizza is the best!”
Fey called the sauce “gravy” and crowed, “It’s warm y’all!” before chowing down on the pizza.
Fey is an alumna of Upper Darby High School.
Founded in 1941 by Frank Pica Sr. at 62nd and Race streets, in 1956 Pica’s Pizza moved to Upper Darby, where Frank Pica Jr. continues the family tradition.
