Pizza wins big at the Oscars

By Pizza Today


During the 86th annual Academy Awards, host Ellen DeGeneres surprised Oscar attendees with a pizza delivery from Los Angeles-based Big Mama’s & Papa’s.

 

Pizza may just be the most talked about thing at this year’s Oscars. On Twitter, Big Mama’s & Papa’s wrote:

It has to be good if @TheEllenShow ordered it for her friends! pic.twitter.com/jvzEy8no3I

The delivery person was not an actor. What did the now celebrity Big Mama’s & Papa’s employee do after the famous delivery? He returned to a cheering store and quickly began preparing another order.

 

What’s next for Big Mama’s & Papa’s? The pizzeria wants to be the official pizza of the Academy Awards, initiating a campaign on Facebook:

Do you think #BMPP should become the official pizza of the Oscars?

All 20 #BMPP’s will Give Away Thousands of Free 28″ Big Mama’s Pizza to Voters if we become qualified and approved. Like or Share to vote!
