Pizza Pete is a light teal male fish with light pink lips. He wears a light tan pizza costume with pepperoni and olive toppings.
He is shown to have a hostile and nasty side, as he turned down SpongeBob's request for a job in an unprofessional way and went as far as to kidnap him.
Although he is initially portrayed as having a distaste and dislike for the Krusty Krab, he is shown to like their food at the end of the episode.
False imprisonment: He handcuffs SpongeBob by tying up his wrists with a breadstick, despite not having the authority to do so.
Kidnapping: He abducts SpongeBob and takes him into his restaurant against his own will.
SpongeBob visits Pizza Pete at Pizza Piehole after being denied a job by Weenie Hut. Pete is happy to see that he can handle a pizza, so he hires him. However, he soon fires him due to him making a Pizza Patty, which is not what he wants his restaurant to serve.
Later on, Pizza Pete kidnaps SpongeBob and forces him to work at his restaurant, since it turns out that his customers were fond of the Pizza Patties. SpongeBob is then taken away by Noodleman, as his customers also liked SpongeBob's food. In the end, he and the other restaurant owners get into a big fight, and are soon defeated by the Killer Krabby Patty.
He and the other restaurant owners who kidnapped SpongeBob are seen eating at the Krusty Krab near the end of the episode.
Pizza Pete is the only restaurant owner to mention the Krusty Krab.
