The mother-of-two maintained that the leftover grease stain on the box looked a lot like a sign of divine intervention.
They say God works in mysterious ways, which might at least explain the idea that a visual representation of Jesus Christ would ever be likely to appear in a manner quite like this.
33-year-old Kim Ellis, who hails from Cornwall, England, had been devouring a Domino's meat feast with her partner when she noticed that the grease stain on the box looked awfully familiar.
"I just looked up and noticed a little face looking back at me and thought it was funny," she said.
"My first thought was Jesus because of the flowing hair and beard."
Before long, she had taken a photograph of the box and posted it up online where it quickly attracted a great deal of attention.
Not everyone was convinced that the stain looked like Jesus, however, with some arguing that it more closely resembled serial killer Charles Manson or singer John Lennon.
Whatever the case, the image is a prime example of pareidolia - the mind's uncanny ability to perceive meaningful shapes in abstract patterns.
In other words, it really is just a grease stain in a pizza box.
