The delivery boy has in his job description that he delivers pizza. Bringing it to my house is exactly what he's supposed to be doing. I don't feel the need to pay people extra for doing their jobs.
So, what would you rather do:

1. Tip the delivery person and pay the typical cost for pizza. This presumes that the pizza delivery guy gets paid less than minimum wage and he makes it up in tips.

2. Not be required to tip the delivery person because the store owner pays them minimum wage+, but, your pizza is now more expensive because the store owner had to make up for the extra cost somewhere.
