One thing is for sure, Ellen DeGeneres sure knows how to host a show.

Midway through the 2014 Oscars ceremony, the charismatic host nonchalantly began soliciting interest from the star-studded audience about hunger and her future plans to order a pizza.

The unanimous level of interest from her fellow tinsel town friends in the first few rows led Ellen to place an order from Big Mama's & Papa's Pizzeria, a local Los Angeles-based pizza franchise not far from where the show was hosted.

According to ABC News, the starstruck delivery boy is an actual employee for the shop -- not an actor. The bit continued, with Ellen explaining to the delivery boy that actress "Kerry Washington is pregnant, she needs some."

Sure enough, here is Kerry Washington chowing down:

Big Mama's & Papa's staff told ABC News that "Ellen's talk show has picked up quite a few pizzas from us."

The shop is known for their giant pizza:

And finally, surely the pizza shop was happy with the exposure. Here's a shot from their Facebook page:

TMZ was quick on the case, with a videographer staking out the pizza shop as soon the delivery boy made it back. They pried him questions about who fronted the bill, here's the response:

Elie Ayrouth

Elie is a product of Orange County, CA. In early 2012, his dentist diagnosed him with 8 different cavities, three of which on the same tooth, as a result of his 23-year Sour Patch Kid addiction.
