Rahm Emanuel has sent a clear message to Jon Stewart. 

"Jon, deep dish with dead fish," a handwritten note above two deep dish pizzas topped with anchovies reads. "Love, Rahm." 

The photo was part of a tweet sent out by the mayor's twitter account late Thursday in response to a segment Wednesday night where Stewart rails on deep dish pizza. "We also sent @thedailyshow some real pizza for lunch today. No hard feelings?," the tweet reads, followed by the photo. 

It's unclear whether the photo of the anchovy topped pizza was the "real pizza" the mayor's office says they sent, but the message is clear.

The mayor's office also tweeted earlier in the day that the segment had given them "a perfect idea for lunch," followed by another photo of deep dish, this one without anchovies.
