A pizza delivery driver has been attacked with a nail-laden lump of wood during an armed robbery west of Brisbane.

Police say the 23-year-old was delivering a pizza to a home in Eyre St in the Ipswich suburb of Leichhardt when he was approached by a man wielding the crude weapon.

After his attacker demanded cash, the driver dropped his bag and a pizza in front of the man and fled back to his car.

Police say the man then struck the driver on the leg with the lump of wood before the driver was able to escape and call for help.

He suffered minor puncture wounds to his leg.

Investigations are continuing.
