6 Most Expensive Pizzas in The World
6. Gordon Ramsay’s Pizza – $250
Named after the famous chef, this pizza can be tasted in the chef’s renowned Maze restaurant of London. For a long time this pizza has been in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s most expensive pizza, but now it ranks only 7th on our list. The price above is relative to the amount of truffles you want on it. Aside from the truffles, this pizza is topped with Italian onion puree with white truffle pasta, buffalo mozzarella, fontina cheese, pancetta, fresh herbs and cep mushrooms.
5. The C6 – $450
The C6 pizza can be enjoyed at Stevetson Pizza in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, featuring delicacies like Lobster Thermidor, black Alaskan cod, smoked salmon, tiger prawns and Russian Osetra caviar.
4. Nino Bellissima Pizza – $1,000
This awesome pizza is really great looking, hence the name Bellissima. Created by chef Giovani Spatala, this pizza can be tasted at Gino’s Restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City. It has 12 inches in size with a thin crust, two lobster tails and six types of caviar. Apparently it costs $720 to make one, so their profit is only $280, still quite a lot for a single pizza.
3. The Miss Verdun – $4,250
The owner of Mazzou Pizza offers a unique blend of white truffles, lobster, caviar and 24-carat gold flakes and the price you pay will ensure a personal chef to come and cook it in your kitchen as well as a chamber orchestra. The restaurant is located in Verdun, Montreal, Canada and they also offer a $333 burger on their menu in case you want to pay them a visit.
2. Pizza for Lovers – $8,180
The “Pizza for Lovers” at Favitta’s Family Pizzeria in Henrietta New York, close to Rochester, is a great marketing idea due to the connection with Valentine’s Day but it seems that the restaurant closed in 2008 so we guess than not many pieces were sold. The pizza comes in the shape of a heart and aside from being a regular pizza it was sprinkled with diamonds, a diamond ring and a bottle of Dom Perignon. The owners probably expected couples to get engaged in their restaurant and they made up the perfect way to ask the question.
1. Louis XIII – $12,000
The most expensive pizza in the world can be found in Salerno, Italy and it is the creation of Renato Viola for a select crowd. With a size of 20 cm, enough for two, the ingredients are certainly exquisite and the creation of the dough itself takes 72 hours, letting it rest a long time before being cooked. Once the dough is made, the rest of the pizza is prepared on the spot. The flower is certified organic Aiab, salt comes from the Murray River in Australia to add more flavor as well as a pink color and this is just the beginning. There are three types of caviar on top: Oscietra Royal Prestige, Kaspia Oscietra Royal Classic from the Iranian coast and Kaspia Beluga, all of them very rare and expensive. The lobster is brought from Norway and there is also mozzarella on the pizza along with seven other types of cheese.
The service is included in the price, coming in a set of dishes and cutlery from an exclusive limited edition and the pizza is served at your home. Renato Viola himself comes with another chef and a sommelier to your house to prepare the pizza, so you don’t even have to go to a restaurant.
