It's a moment of catharsis and dark humor and, apparently, Bryan Cranston nailed the pizza throw on the very first try.

That's an issue because a couple lives in the former White residence.

Vince Gilligan, the creator of "Breaking Bad," pleaded with people to stop throwing delicious pizza pies on the roof of the home. On the "Better Call Saul" podcast, Gilligan said,

Jonathan Banks, the actor who played the intimidating Mike Ehrmantraut on the show, added,

And if I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down.

You can hear Gilligan talk about the pizza throwing in the podcast below around the 3:16 mark.
