"It was a great day," says the comedian.

While filming his upcoming Netflix movie Murder Mystery with Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler got to enjoy a dining experience like none other: one of George and Amal Clooney‘s pizza parties.

Sandler stopped by the famous couple’s house while in Lake Como on location in Italy.

“[George] and his wife and all these nice people were there and they invited Jen and me—I know George from back in the day, too,” the actor tells Ellen DeGeneres on her show on Friday. “So we went there, and you get on a boat and cruise down and we went over to their house. They made us homemade pizza. It was an amazing time. I sat next to Bono. It was a great day.”

Sandler goes on to explain that these kinds of experiences are once in a lifetime, even for him.

“Every time I’m with Jennifer [Aniston] something great happens because everybody loves Jennifer and I tend to stay at home and do nothing,” he says with a laugh. “My wife [Jackie] is so much going, ‘Why didn’t I marry Aniston? Why am I stuck with you?’ Even in Italy she’s like, ‘I’m telling you we gotta leave the room, man.'”

Though the father of two admits the night out at the Clooneys’ was “a good time and I should do it more,” he tends to prefer a more low-key schedule: “I like hanging out with the kids. I like hanging out with the wife. I like playing basketball and I then like going to sleep.”

The Clooneys’ pizza parties are so incredible thanks in part to 33-year-old Como, Italy, native and award-winning chef, Viviana Frizzi, who makes pies for their family once a week.

Last year, George told PEOPLE about how Frizzi picks up the culinary slack since they are not very skilled in that department.

“Vivi cooks almost every night for us now because we have the twins,” he added. “Going out isn’t as easy or as interesting as it used to be. Besides all of our friends would rather eat her food than hit up a local restaurant in Como or in London.”

The couple’s favorite pizza is margherita with rocket salad, said Frizzi, but she also makes sushi, Lebanese and Indian dishes, as well as risottos and Italian fare that even their 1-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander, enjoy.
