HOLLYWOOD, March 3 (UPI) -- The restaurant that delivered three large pizzas to the Academy Awards on Sunday night opened up about their Oscars adventure in a series on tweets.

Big Mama's & Papa's -- a local pizzeria -- took to Twitter during and after the Oscars to clarify some of the questions that might have ensued after host Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizzas to the annual gala.

Among the big revelations: the delivery guy did in fact work for the company and was not an actor, Brad Pitt knows the right way to eat pizza, and celebrities didn't really finish the order.

Scandal star Kerry Washington also unveiled via her Instagram account that she had found gluten-free pies in the green room.

But because serving pizza during Sunday's event wasn't enough for DeGeneres, the talk-show host ordered some for her show on Monday.

"Just received a pizza order at our Burbank Location," the pizzeria tweeted Monday. "The order belongs to @TheEllenShow." If you missed it last night, you can check out a clip of DeGeneres handing out pizza to Academy Awards attendees below.
