World’s Most Expensive Pizza

A
while back, I posted a picture of this area’s most expensive Pizza,
from Pizza
House in Ann Arbor
.  That one was only about $25.
 Now I see there is one that is a wee bit more than that:

NEW
YORK (Reuters) – A New York restaurateur has cooked up the most world’s
most extravagant pizza — a $1,000 pizza topped with six sorts of
caviar and fresh lobster.

Nino
Selimaj, who runs six pizza restaurants in New York, on Wednesday
unveiled his Luxury Pizza, a 12 inch (30 cms), thin crust topped with
caviar, lobster, creme fraiche and chives. Cut into eight, it works out
at $125 a slice.

“I
know this won’t be for everyone but there are people in New York who
can afford it and once tried, they’ll be back for more. It is
delicious,”…

I
don’t know about that.  Seems perverse to pay more for a pizza
that a car payment.

    There’s also a thousand dollar omelette in New York. Apparently that’s what everything costs there.

    You’re right. The story about the pizza also mentions $1,000 ice-cream sundae called Golden Opulence which is covered in 23K edible gold leaf.

    I wonder what sort of profit margin he’s pulling in on that.

    And if it tastes like a dog’s breakfast, who’s going to spit it out and admit they paid that kind of money for garbage?

    And who is eating this: the 2% who have stolen all the money, they need something to do with it. You can only carry so much bling, might as well eat bling.

    Matthew Fort (a foodie writer) at The Guardian rants about it…

    Probably what they eat at United Health board meetings.

    Yes, your health care dollars at work.
