$450 pizza sold in Canadian restaurant

$450 pizza sold in Canadian restaurant | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News

From link:

The Vancouver eatery has already sold one of the $450 pies and seven other orders for a $120 version. "I never thought I'd sell so many," Hatami said.

So what exactly do you get on a $450 pizza? Specifically, the high-end meal known as the "C6" comes topped with a thermidor of lobster and black Alaska cod and a side of Russian osetra caviar.

Meanwhile, The Global News adds that the $120 version is topped with roasted garlic, Icelandic scampi, smoked steelhead and lobster ratatouille.

When a cheapo large pizza from Papa Johns will just not do....

Travel Channel has these food shows like best places to chow down. I don't remember the show title, but it was a count down on pizza places. Number 1 was a place in NY that served a pizza with different caviars for $1K. The radio show that I heard about the Canadian place also mentioned some Russian pizza that was $4200.00.

$450 would feed me for a month, easily.

I have had pizza 3 times in Canada and I was not impressed at all.
No offence but the ones I have had just didn't get it. Most meals I ate were great but the pizza was a different creature. The sauce was sweet and the sausages weren't quite right. The balance of flavors were not like anything I was used to either. I rember the crusts being pretty oily too.

I am sure if you grew up with it is what you know just like me. It is just different than pizza in the states.

In my usual choice of restaurants that $450 would buy me about 20-25 dinners (excluding beverage).

I like pizza but not $450 worth at one sitting, even if that's dinner for two.
