Remember that Pizza Delivery guy that Ellen DeGeneres brought on stage at the Oscars? He’s not just any old pizza delivery guy any more.

In fact, Edgar Martirosyan is opening his own Pizzeria in Hollywood.

The pizza delivery man became famous overnight for delivering pizzas to stars like Meryl Streep and Brad Pit during this year’s Academy Awards.

And it was the Oscar publicity that made the restaurant possible, he told US news website Mashable.

The restaurant opens on Sunset Boulevard next month.

It will serve Neapolitan-style pizza and salads, with many of the ingredients coming from Italy, while others will be locally grown.

Edgar and his brother Erik have already owned another pizzeria in Hollywood.

It was the chain responsible for the pizzas at Oscars night.
