We recently got through with the World’s Most Expensive Hot Dog and Most Expensive Burger. It seems like it’s just a contest to see who can assemble the most expensive ingredients on item X and get as much press as possible out of the deal. I’m not one to disappoint, so here’s the World’s Most Expensive Pizza.
Vancouver, British Columbia based Steveston Pizza Company has rolled out what has recently been named The World’s Most Expensive Pizza. It tallies in $450. It would have to be very special, I could probably make 300+ homemade pizzas for the same price. No exaggeration.
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,” the owner Nader Hatami said.
What exactly do you get when you decide you need to the “guy” to spend $450 on a pizza? I’m glad you asked. It’s called the C6. It’s topped with a thermidor of lobster and black Alaskan cod, and a dollop of Russian Osetra caviar, because, you know, it has to have caviar. Right. If you’re feeling a bit more “reasonable” there’s a $120 version (dubbed the C5, of course) which is topped with roasted garlic, Icelandic scampi, smoked steelhead, and lobster ratatouille. If you’re a ham-and-egger like me, there’s always their regular lineup of $14-$20 pizzas. You know, for the riff-raff.
If you were wondering what pizza held the old record you won’t be surprised to find out that it was offered by bastion of good temperament and grace – Gordon Ramsey. His Maze restaurant offered the pizza for $178. It is topped with onion puree, white truffle paste, Fontina cheese, baby mozzarella, pancetta, Cepe mushrooms, freshly picked wild mizuna lettuce, and shaved white truffles that run $1,200 a pound.
