You're assuming the pizza restaurant is staffed. Instead, the pizza is assembled and cooked by a robotic system. Your self-driving car communicates directly with the pizza restaurant main AI, informing it when it arrives, at which point a robotic arm puts the pizza in the car. Meanwhile, sentry guns fire rubber bullets at the hoards of permanently unemployed and desperate humans attempting to loot the pizza restaurant and turn your car to scrap. During all of this, you lounge casually around your living room in the fortified neighborhood you call home, secure in the certainty that what differentiates you from the ravenous hordes is that they are stupid and lazy.
