You could easily cover 175 acres if you laid all the pizzas Americans eat in a single day. This is almost 350 slices per second!
We were intrigued by this little fact and decided to compile a list of the world’s top five most expensive pizzas. They could cost as much as one hundred dollars, two hundred dollars, or even three hundred. Yesterday we featured a hamburger that cost $5000. Is it possible for pizza to cost more than this? Continue reading to find out.
5. Maze London, Gordon Ramsey Restaurant — $250
It is hard to imagine what could be inside this pie that would make it so expensive. The pizza is topped with Italian onion purée, white truffle paste, fontina cheese and pancetta. Fresh herbs are also included. Finally, the pie is shaved with white Truffle shavings. These truffle shavings will increase the cost of the pizza, but you have the option to tell the chef how much truffle you want to add and how much you would like to be removed. The cost of adding truffles is higher the more you add.
4. Nino bellisima, New York City — 1,000
We are only at number four and have already surpassed the $1000 mark. Can you imagine the price of number one? This pizza was created on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. It’s 12 inches of delicious thin-crust joy, topped with six kinds of caviar and 2 lobster tails. Wow! It sounds amazing. How much profit are these guys making from this pie? This particular pizza is $720 to make. This means that every time they sell one, they make $280. This is more than most people earn in a single day.
3. Haggis, Glasgow, a Domenico Crolla Restaurant — $4,200
We are only at number three, remember. This luxurious pie is James Bond, a British super agent. This pizza is known as the “Pizza Royale 007” and is topped with champagne-soaked caviar, lobster, and 100-year-old cognac. Yum!
2. Favitta’s Family Pizzeria, Henrietta New York (near Rochester) — $8,200
This pizza is called the “Pizza for Lovers”. Seriously, $8,200 for one pizza? It would help if you sprinkled it with diamonds. It is sprinkled with diamonds! The ingredients don’t make this pizza so expensive, but it does come with a Dom Perignon bottle and a diamond ring. Prices vary depending on the size and quality of the diamond. This is a great way to propose to a pizza-loving girl, gentlemen.
1. Luis XIII, Salerno, Italy, a Renato Viola Creation — $12,000
This pie is outrageously expensive. Why is this pie so costly? The creation takes 72 hours because the dough has to rest for at least 72 hours before making it into the most expensive pie in history. It is topped off with three types of caviar and lobster from Norway, Cilento and buffalo mozzarella. The crust is lightly dusted in pink Australian sea salt from the Murray River. This pie is only possible in your own home, and the cost does not include service. Three Italian chefs will come to your villa and prepare the pie in your kitchen. We hope they don’t stay for the whole 72-hour period. That would be weird.
