“Four hundred actually was....from actors. And then Ellen added another $600,” he said, confirming it was the biggest tip he’s ever received.

And the boost to his business? “It’s good. A lot of calls. It’s busy, it’s good.” 

In fact, he’s even getting calls from across the world -- from his home country of Armenia and from Russia, where he used to live in Moscow.

But the biggest highlight wasn't the boost to business, but the chance to hand pizza to one of his favorite stars -- Julia Roberts. "I was always watching her movies back in Moscow. The Pretty Woman." he said on The Ellen Show.
