A Luxurious $1000 Pizza: Yum!

A while ago I featured the most expensive burger served, today I read this nice piece on the Mail about the most luxurious pizza costing $1000! Would love to taste this one...

A luxurious caviar pizza costing $1,000 has proved a hit after being added to a New York restaurant's menu. The extravagant pie is the creation of New York restauranteur Nino Selimaj, owner of Nino's Bellissima Pizza in Manhattan. Most of the price-tag comes in the hefty serving of caviar which tops the pizza, which in itself costs $820. Hundreds of people have already bought the decadent dish, which is among the most expensive pizzas in the world. Two of the world's top caviars, Beluga, and the intensely-flavoured Black Russian Royal Sevruga, are among the varieties selected for Nino's creation. The fish flavour is further enhanced by thinly sliced lobster and creme fraiche, and topped off with a salmon roll, chives and wasabi paste. Nino, who owns five restaurants in the city, said: 'I've been in the city for 33 years and I serve caviar in all my restaurants. 'I wanted something different for my pizza restaurant. 'I didn't want just a traditional marinara or margherita. I wanted something specific and unique and so I came up with the $1,000 pizza, and it's worth every penny.' Nino has been serving up the pizza fit for Russian tzars for four years, and still prepares around one a week for caviar devotees.

He spent three months trialling different ingredients including white truffles and olive oil, before coming up with the perfect caviar, lobster and creme fraiche mix.
