"Gravity" cleaned house on Sunday night with seven Academy Award wins, but it wasn't the Alfonso Cuaron-directed film that left a great taste in our mouth -- it was the pizza.

Pizza? Yes, pizza.

Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres told her peers that she would order pizzas halfway through the show, and she made good on her promise. Minutes later she brought out a pizza delivery man from backstage, used Brad Pitt as a plate-passer-outer, and delivered cheesy, gooey, luke-warm looking slices to a slew of celebs.

Here are the five best reasons that there should be pizza at every awards show:

1. If you're the host, you'll win tons of points from your peers (who you may have made fun of earlier in the night)

2. Pizza-eating makes for awesome awards show selfies

3. Jennifer Lawrence loves pizza, and everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence

4. Brad Pitt is the waiter of our dreams

5. And finally, simplly because celebrities have to eat, too
