The $1000 Pizza Pie from Nino’s Bellissima Pizza
The Indians tried but could only get to the title of the most expensive pizza in their own country (@$200 a pie). The most expensive pizza remains with Malta (surprising, but true) ; but it doesnt sell as much as this $1000 pie which is sold in Nino’s Bellissima Pizza, New York. Fortunately for us, the pizza bears absolutely no likeliness to any face – royal or not. Read the Royal Pizza to see what I mean. But then , neither does it come stuffed with crisp dollars as this one did. The $1000 pizza was created by Selimaj of Ninos Bellissima Pizza after an entire year of research.
The pizza comes on a creme fraiche base with four types of caviar, sliced lobster tail, salmon roe and some wasabi. Each $250 slice contains a different kind of caviar. Those who have tried it claim that while its a fabulous experience, it does not taste like a pizza at all.
What surprised us the most is that despite its steep $1000 price tag, the pizza actually sold about 2 to 10 pies every week. However with the global financial crunch, this came down to once every couple of weeks / once every month.
