I've lived in NYC for 3 years and have never even heard of Nino's, despite eating a ton of pizza. Who wants caviar on pizza anyway?

It's expensive, but it's not the most expensive. These three are listed as costing more (Nino's is number four on the list)

Haggis, Glasgow, a Domenico Crolla Restaurant – $4,200

Remember folks, we are only on number three. This luxurious pie is named after the British super agent, James Bond. Known by all as the “Pizza Royale 007,” this pizza is sprinkled with 24-carat gold dust, topped with champagne-soaked caviar and lobster that is marinated in 100-year-old cognac. Yum!
----------------------------------

Favitta’s Family Pizzeria, Henrietta New York (near Rochester) – $8,200

This pie is known as the “Pizza for Lovers.” Seriously, $8,200 for a pizza? It better be sprinkled with diamonds. Wait a minute, it is sprinkled with diamonds, come on, really? This pizza doesn’t cost so much because of the ingredients, it cost so much because it comes with a diamond ring and a bottle of Dom Perignon. The price fluctuates depending on the size of the diamond. So gentleman, if you have a pizza loving girl out there, maybe this is the perfect way to pop the question.
--------------------------------

Luis XIII, Salerno, Italy, a Renato Viola Creation – $12,000

The price tag on this one is straight ridiculous. What makes this pie so expensive? Well, the creation takes 72 hours to make because the dough is given ample time to rest before being made into the most expensive pie the world has ever known. It is topped with bufala mozzarella, three types of caviar, lobster from Norway and Cilento, and it is lightly dusted with hand picked grains of pink Australian sea-salt from the Murray River. The cost includes service (thank God), and this pie can only be made in your home. That’s right, three Italian chefs will show up at your villa and make it for you in the comfort of your kitchen. Let’s just hope they aren’t staying for the entire 72-hour period because that would be a little weird.

Nevermind. No need to add to the silliness.

Ironically, I just read about this yesterday, too. But in one of those bathroom readers published in 2007. I'm surprised inflation hasn't knocked the price up a couple hundred bucks.

The Bellisima Pizza offers happiness in the form of $820 worth of caviar (six different kinds), and then about $180 for other ingredients, including the makings for dough and some Maine lobster sprinkled on top.

Maine lobster is five or six bucks a pound retail in this area. I so love it when restaurants use it as an excuse to price something out of this world.

This $1000 pizza probably has been created just for the publicity. Of course, it will rarely if ever actually sell.

I'm not even sure how good caviar would be as a pizza topping. Even if one wanted to use caviar on a pizza, a more moderately priced but still high quality variety would be more than sufficient IMO.

This description of six different kinds of caviar and maine lobster on a pizza actually sounds unappealing. I'd rather have a $20 pizza Margherita and save my money to spend on food actually worth the money.

Gee, and I thought Harrod's in London was expensive. Someone who has become a good friend works as a waiter at Harrod's Pizzeria, so I always go there at least once when I'm in London.

Anyway, funny story. A few years ago we were going to Harrod's for pizza and a certain Flyertalker who knew I was in London texted me and asked if I wanted to go to lunch. I told him four of us already had plans to meet at Harrod's for lunch, but he was welcome to join us. He did and we all ordered individual pizzas. The pizza and the service were impeccable, as always. Anyway, my Flyertalker friend said, at the conclusion, "Did I just have a $50 pizza?

I said, "No, you had a Diet Coke too!
