Would You Spend $450 On A Pizza?
Just the other day, we told you about the pizza vending machines that are coming to the U.S. Today, I have slightly sillier pizza news: Have you ever considered spending $450 on a pizza?
The pizza, called C6, was created by Nader Hatami, owner and founder of Steveston Pizza Co. in Canada. It features lobster thermidor and black Alaska cod, with a side of Russian Osetra caviar, The Province reports. "The idea was to make a culinary statement. I don't know if you've tried our pizza but each one is pretty unique," said the restaurant's owner, Nader Hatami.
While Hatami has only sold one C6, he has sold seven C5s at $120 a pop: This pie is made with roasted garlic, Icelandic scampi, smoked steelhead and lobster ratatouille. "I never thought I’d sell so many," Hatami told The Province. "The idea was to make a culinary statement." Assuming you're part of the 99 percent, most of Hatmai's pies start at $14.
While this sounds great, there are some people out there who disagree. Twitter users are outraged that a pizza covered in seafood could be sold for such a high price.
So why would someone want to make a pizza that has such a high price tag? If you have every watched Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares or Master Chef, you may have heard of Gordon Ramsey. Seems as though Mr. Hatami has supplanted Gordon Ramsey for the honors of the most expensive pizza ever sold. The previous record, set by Chef Ramsey was $178 at his Maze Restaurant in the Guinness Book of World Records.
While this may seem like a ridiculous goal in life, this $450 pizza is still not the most expensive pie you can buy. There are 3 more expensive pizzas that you could get:
- Margo's Pizzeria in Malta sells a pizza with white truffles and 24-carat gold leaf for $2,400.
- Favitta's Family Pizzeria in New York, you can buy an $8,200 pizza that comes with a diamond ring.
- The "piece de resistance is the $12,000-a Renato Viola creation. The Pizza takes 72-hours to make, topped with bufala mozzarella, three types of caviar, lobster from Norway and Cilento, and it is lightly dusted with handpicked grains of pink Australian sea-salt from the Murray River. The perk is that it is made for the customer in their own kitchen and home.
