The Guy Who Delivered Pizzas to the Oscars Is a Real Deliveryman

Oscar host Ellen had a special treat for the audience Sunday night when she had pizzas delivered to the audience during the show.

It was an even bigger moment for the deliveryman from Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria, a Los Angeles-based franchise not too far from where Hollywood was having its big night Sunday.

An employee reached at the restaurant Sunday night said the man in the red baseball cap and maroon hoodie passing out slices to the star-studded crowd is an employee for the shop – and not an actor.

“Ellen’s talk show has picked up quite a few pizzas from us,” a Big Mama’s & Papa’s staff member told ABC News Sunday night.  ”They had us make a giant pizza before for one of her shows.”

The pizza that stars like Oscar winner Jared Leto and Chiwetel Ejiofor were eating was likely hot and fresh, the staff member said.

The pizzeria boasts having “the world’s largest pizza” and they definitely put some big smiles on the faces of those in the audience.
