Pizza delivery BLACKOUT!?

What is up with pizzerias (even the big chains) not delivering to certain neighborhoods? There are several pizzas within three miles of my house and miraculously I am "out of the delivery area" for all of them- even Pizza Hut and Papa Johns.

I live in a neighborhood that doesn't look great, but it is pretty safe and crime statistics for my 'hood don't indicate that it is the especially dangerous place it once was years ago. In fact, it is well on the way to full on gentrification.

Can any pizza delivery insiders tell me why my 'hood may be black listed from delivery? Can you tell me how I can change it?
