Giving a pizza delivery boy a sizeable tip is a good gesture, but anything more than 20 per cent may be overdoing it. Delivery drivers are already paid for what they do, and in many cases pizza restaurants will charge a delivery fee. Add in a large tip, and the cost of a pizza could end up costing more than you wanted to pay.

Smaller Tips

A small tip should only be reserved for substandard service. Offering a small tip for a job well done is considered poor manners and could be looked upon unfavourably both by the delivery driver and by the pizza restaurant. Decent tips are the best way to ensure continued good service.

Bottom Line

The standard tip for a pizza delivery boy should be 15 per cent of the bill. Feel free to adjust for good or bad service and consider an extra dollar or two if the delivery driver has to travel a great distance or navigate through inclement weather.
