The Most Expensive Pizza In New York.... In The World, I Daresay.

Could you imagine paying $1,000 for a pizza? No, this does not come with a car or house. For those with the means, who are kind of tired of the usual pizza toppings, and just happen to be in New York City, go splurge and indulge yourself with the most luxurious pizza in the world.

The restaurant Nino's Bellissima, in Manhattan, has put a $1,000 pizza on the menu. The 12-inch pizza is 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 wasabi to complement all the fish. The thin-crust pizza is cut into eight, $125 slices for serving.

You can't just walk in off the street a pick up one of these specialty pies on your way home from work, though. The restaurant needs 24-hour advance notice to make one.

Expensive Indulgence

Would you purchase this pizza?

      It really isn't a pizza without cheese and sauce. It is a really yummy combination of the finest seafood. If I could afford to splurge with 1000 dollars I would try it, but unfortunately, I cannot afford it. =(

    • anonymous 7 years ago

      Absolutely - just to be the guy who did!

    • Evelyn Saenz 8 years ago from Royalton

      I think it sounds delicious but I would make it myself as $1000 is just way too much.

      I agree with Jewelsofawe. If I had the money, hey, why not? It's be fun.

      I would if I could split the bill with three other people. After visiting NYC several times, this price doesn't surprise me. Reminds me of the $777 burger in Vegas.

      If I were a millionaire or richer, sure, heck even if I made less, just for the experience.

    You couldn't pay me to buy it

        omw! that guy who sells it looks like mr bean! ha ha soooo funny!

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        The dude who sells this pizza is greedy. Maybe he feels like he needs money to make up for his looks

      • anonymous 7 years ago

        Stated plain and simple - no.

      • anonymous 7 years ago

        The crust looks like shit. Toppings will never make up for that.

        HOT DAM

      • Deb Kingsbury 7 years ago from Flagstaff, Arizona

        Well, I'd buy it if you paid me MORE than $1,000 ... but, seriously, no, I prefer plain ol' cheese. And maybe some onion when I'm in the mood.

        I'd rather have spinach and onions on mine. Mmmmm, good.

      • kalos_eidos 8 years ago

        No way would I spend that much on a pizza.

      • anonymous 8 years ago

        definitely not.

      • EelKat13 8 years ago

        Very doubtful. I'm known by the locals as the "real Uncle Scrooge McDuck", and I got that title for a reason -- I take my refusal to spend money to the ultra extremes. Besides, living in a fishing village in Maine, means I could make the whole thing myself for about $20. Lobster and roe are only exspensive if you don't live in the town that grows it. :)

      • ElizabethJeanAl 8 years ago

        Nope. I'm too much of a penny pincher.

      • Treasures By Brenda 8 years ago from Canada

        I think it is too unlike pizza for me!

          Sheesh, that's amazing. I mean, my husband and I could take a whole VACATION for what that pizza cost. Hm, a week of vacation or fifteen minutes maybe of pizza-eating? And funky pizza at that. Nah, I'll pass on the pizza. (Cool lens, though!)

          Fish pizza = no thanks! Nah, I'll just take my pepperoni. Certain things don't belong on pizza, and caviar is definitely one of them!

          Looks pretty, but I prefer my pizza with tomato sauce and veges.

          We love pizza but one of the reasons is because it is an inexpensive meal.

          I love pizza but I refuse to spend a $1000 on it.

          Great lens

          I have to say that I think I will spend my $1000 on something other than a pizza! I wonder how many they sell...........

        • idc5 profile image

          idc5 8 years ago

          woah pricey! A square inch of that pizza probably costs as much as carryout at one of the national chains !!

          What a terrific idea for a lens! Love the way you put it together. One thing I can say for this pizza, it's mighty pretty!

          Pizza is a regular here on Friday nights. It is homemade and delicious and costs a lot less! (Naturally, it does not have any exotic ingredients on it!) Interesting lens!

          I did not know that amazon sold caviar. I have a billionaire lens, this pizza would be good for that lens. I am going to lensroll this lens to it.

          OMG! I'd surely love a slice of that $1,000 pizza. Just can't imagine paying that much for a pizza ... I'm really more of a lobster and filet mignon type of gal and maybe a touch of caviar pleeeze. Interesting lens!

          Very Cuhrazy and very interesting! I enjoyed reading about this $1,000 pizza. It sure sounds like it has been a great advertising gimmick if nothing else. Well done!
