Find out how much the driver tip should be on your pizza delivery order
Some people are not aware of this. I didn't know for a long time. You're supposed to tip the pizza delivery driver like you tip the waiter. They rely on tips and use their own car.
Your tips are greatly appreciated. It's what keeps drivers moving.
Do they earn the tip?
Absolutely. Drivers perform a service by bringing dinner to your door. They take on financial costs and difficulties, more than most people realize. Pizza delivery is considered a hazardous job by the US government. They are third most likely to be murdered on the job, right after police officer and taxi driver.
The delivery charge is a separate fee that stays with the store and is not associated with the driver. Stores use it as a hidden cover charge to disguise lower advertised prices. The national chains keep the fee for themselves. They compensated their drivers for gas prior to enacting the fee. Local independent stores might give the fee to the driver for gas or hourly wages, but that is not part of the tip. The tip is unaffected. Tips are based on the bill amount after delivery charge.

Many pizza delivery drivers are paid what is called a “split wage” Drivers get a tip credit wage of say, $5.00 per hour, plus whatever tips they get from the customers. However, many drivers spend a considerable amount of time at the restaurant getting their orders ready for delivery or even waiting for the pizza to cook.
This time spent inside the restaurant usually amounts to almost 1/2 of the 8 hour shift. In this case, its unfair for the driver to be paid the $5.00 per hour tip credit wage, so the law requires that the driver is paid at least the minimum wage for all of this time spent inside the restaurant.
The restaurant is required to keep track of all of the hours the drivers spend inside and outside the restaurant, so that the driver receives at least a minimum wage for all hours worked.
What happens in reality is that the restaurants often will not track this time and pay the driver only the tip credit wage for all or most of the hours, regardless of the fact that the driver may be spending a large percentage on their time inside the restaurant performing non-delivery tasks. This practice is prevalent in the pizza delivery industry throughout the nation, and it runs afoul of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Under federal law, restaurants are required to pay delivery drivers $2.13 per hour if they utilize the tip credit, though gratuities must push each driver over the $7.25 federal minimum wage. In the event that the $7.25 hourly rate is not met on a workweek basis, an employer must make up the difference.

A great pizza crust should be like a great football defense. It should bend but never break. The superior pizza crust is neither cracker-thin nor thick as bread. It should have a veneer of crispness and be softer and more tender on the inside. A great pizza crust should have browned and blackened char spots. They lend a needed bit of smoky flavor. I love a pizza crust with a few of those raised blisters. They lighten the overall effect of eating pizza. The interior of the crust should have the hole structure of well-made and well-baked bread.
It's easy to tell if a pizzeria uses fresh mozzarella: It's white. Aged mozzarella, used by the great majority of pizza makers in this country, is "pizza yellow." Because it's aged, it has a certain tanginess.
Most good by-the-slice places use a commercial aged mozzarella made by Grande, a large cheese purveyor in Wisconsin.
The best pizza sauces are made with uncooked canned tomatoes, from either California or Italy, that have been strained and seasoned with salt and maybe some oregano. Pizza sauce should not be slow-cooked. It should not taste like pasta sauce or marinara sauce.
Some people doctor their sauce with sugar, giving it an excessive sweetness. If the tomatoes used are good enough, they will be plenty sweet on their own.
Pizza.comes from the latin root word Picea which means the blackening of crust by fire.
