Because what else would she hit her mother with? A frying pan??
Ha, just kidding. We hate to make light of a serious situation, especially since this kid was genius enough to try to lure her mother with the delightful aroma of cheese, pepperoni, and sausages.
Little Rita Lawlor was awarded by the Sarasota County Fire Department for bravery after she tried to wake her mother up by hitting her in the face with a slice of pizza.
After the hard, crumby crust of pizza against her mother's face failed to wake her up, Rita calmly called 911. Soon, an ambulance pulled up and saved her mother.
Thank goodness for some quick thinking and an ability to stay calm under pressure. She's our Perezcious hero of the day.
To hear Rita's story, watch above. Srsly, she couldn't be more adorable. We wish we could give you ALL the pizza in the world.
