Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton's campaign has kept the media waiting for her official announcement -- but two top aides sought to smooth things over by bringing pizza to the reporters waiting outside her Brooklyn headquarters.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook and spokesman Josh Schwerin delivered pies from Brooklyn's Piz-zetta to the mostly television reporters who had gathered outside the site where the Democratic front-runner's staff will work.

"We figured you guys were hungry and we brought you some pizza here. You know, you've been waiting here all morning," Mook said.
    The gesture comes as reporters covering Clinton, who have been told her announcement will come in a video posted on social media sometime Sunday, but not when, wait.
    Mook didn't offer any hints on the timing of Clinton's announcement, saying only to "stay tuned."
    Clinton is trying to improve on her strained relations with the press. She said last month that she wants "new beginnings" with political reporters as she heads into her second presidential campaign.
    The former secretary of state, New York senator and first lady has a long and adversarial history with reporters. In her recent remarks, she said media scribes struggle to focus on substantive policy issues amid "cable shout fests" and "Twitter-storms."
    "Every day, you, the reporters and the writers in this room, are under more and more pressure from changes in technology, in the marketplace and, of course, in our politics," she said.
    She emphasized that she wants to put her antagonistic history with the press, which was on display during her troubled 2008 campaign, in the past.
    "A new grandchild, another new hair style, a new email account, why not a new relationship with the press? So here goes, no more secrecy, no more zone of privacy. After all, what good did that do me?" Clinton said at the event to award a political reporting prize in Washington last month.
