New York Restaurant Offers Luxury Pizza

New York restaurateur Nino Selimaj is selling the Italian pies at his new pizzeria for $1,000 per pizza topped with caviar.
The pizza will be added to the menu at “Nino’s Bellisima,” one of Selimaj’s six restaurants in the city, reports CBS station WCBS-TV in New York.

The 50-year-old Selimaj, who celebrated the grand opening of his restaurant this week, said the goal was to make something very special, enough to justify the claim of the world’s most expensive pizza.

The record-priced pie will be topped with creme fraiche, chives, eight ounces of four different kinds of caviar, four ounces of thinly sliced lobster tail, salmon roe, and a little bit of spice with wasabi.

The 12-inch pie is sliced into four pieces, which comes to $250 per slice.

“My luxury pizza will become as famous as a night at the Waldorf Astoria. When Mr. Chow’s introduced upscale Asian Cuisine several years ago, people couldn’t imagine paying hundreds of dollars for Chinese food. Now upscale Asian cuisine is as common as New York hotdogs. Upscale Pizza will be next,” Selimaj said.

The previous international record for pizza found on a menu was $193 at Gordon Ramsey’s Maze restaurant in London.
