    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York restaurateur has cooked up the most world's most extravagant pizza -- a $1,000 pizza topped with six sorts of caviar and fresh lobster.
    Nino Selimaj, who runs six pizza restaurants in New York, on Wednesday unveiled his Luxury Pizza, a 12 inch (30 cms), thin crust topped with caviar, lobster, creme fraiche and chives. Cut into eight, it works out at $125 a slice.

    "I know this won't be for everyone but there are people in New York who can afford it and once tried, they'll be back for more. It is delicious," said Selimaj, who moved to New York from Albania about 29 years ago.

    "Sure, some people will say it is just a publicity stunt but I have researched this for over a year and think there is a demand. I have already sold one."

    Selimaj said his restaurant Nino's Bellissima, which is the only one of his restaurants to offer the Luxury Pizza, needs 24 hours notice for the gourmet dish as it orders the caviar in advance.

    "But where better to experiment with pizza than in New York where people love their pizza," he said.

    If diners are still peckish after the Luxury Pizza, they can always head over to the midtown restaurant Serendipity that sells a $1,000 ice-cream sundae called Golden Opulence which is covered in 23K edible gold leaf.

  6. Ugh...the combination of toppings on that pizza sounds awful..I would try it if I had the money though. Just for kicks.
  7. hmmm i wouldnt mind trying a shrimp and crab pizza? lol
  8. a $1000 ice cream sundae? Why would you want to eat 23K gold leaf?
  9. ewww
  10. a nice bag for me too
  11. I would NEVER spend $1000 on a pizza!

    I like a simple pepperoni pizza, thanks.

  12. I've seen the sundae (well, on TV). It's vanilla ice cream with edible 23 karat gold leaf and golden caviar.


    Who doesn’t love ice creams, we all do for sure! But, not everyone of us can taste this $1,000 ice cream sundae that is obviously the world’s most expensive ice cream! The delectable sundae is The Grand Opulence Sundae from famed Serendipity of New York City. The scoops in the dessert are garnished with 23k edible gold. So, you can make-out the luxury that has gone into its making. And, if you are wondering, this might be a rare-sell for the makers then the restaurant reports, they sell approximately one a month. Ultra-expensive ice cream for the ultra-rich!!!
  13. Here's the pizza:
  14. Eww!!! NO!!! that pizza does not look good ... at first i thought the ice cream could be good, but CAVIAR on ICE CREAM?
  15. I don't think it's IN or ON the ice cream, I think it's in a seperate container on top of the dish.

    But ew! anyway.
