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.

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:
