Luxury Pie: NYC Restaurant Offers $1,000 Pizza

wcbstv.com - Luxury Pie: NYC Restaurant Offers $1,000 Pizza

Quote:
The pizza will be added to the menu at "Nino's Bellisima," one of Selimaj's six restaurants in the city. Forget traditional cheese and pizza sauce, the record-priced pie will be topped with creme fraiche, chives, eight ounces of four different kinds of Petrossian caviar, four ounces of thinly sliced Maine lobster tail, salmon roe, and a little bit of spice with wasabi.

And unlike your typical pizza, this one won't be cooked, after all, that would spoil the fish. The 12-inch pie is sliced into four pieces, which comes to $250 per slice.
Screw Papa John's and Pizza Hut.....

Oh, I dunno. I'd rather have the $1,000 and make as many pizzas the way I like 'em.

If you're going to offer a food item for $1,000, why would you name it for another food item that sells for $10??

This is a specialty pizza, not the regular meat filled kind.

Nope!Not a pizza and I probably would not want to try it even if its for free.Just another restuarant trying to get some attention and get into the news.
Great pizza is what it is, no more no less. And thats hard enough.Caviar on pizza? Come on!You should not mess with a classic unless you know what you are doing and then its a very minor change to make it more interesting.

You can't just take any kind of flat bread and toss some wierd crap on it and call it a pizza.

Why isn't it bruschetta? We could call it a caviar chip cookie.
