Pizza delivery is a service in which a pizzeria or pizza chain delivers a pizza to a customer.
An order is typically made either by telephone or over the internet to the pizza chain, in
which the customer can request pizza type, size and other products alongside the pizza,
commonly including soft drinks. Pizzas may be delivered in pizza boxes or delivery bags,
and deliveries are made with either an automobile, motorized scooter, or bicycle.
