I love pizza. You love pizza. Almost everyone loves pizza. The rich and powerful are no exception to the love for a deliciously crispy thin crust, a simple Sicilian-style, deep-dish with piles of toppings or a simple and tasty pan pizza. Here are 10 of the world’s most decadent pies, fit for kings, queens and the culinary adventurous!
The Astice e Tartufo
The Astice e Tartufo is a pizza served at the Third Avenue Cafe located inside the Dubai Mall in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Guests can enjoy this pizza, topped with lobsters and truffles alongside other imported ingredients while they enjoy the breathtaking view from the cafe’s terrace.
The Astice e Tartufo pizza costs around $125, making it the cheapest, but still expensive, pizza on our list.
Domino’s may be one of the first names that come to mind when I mention pizza chains, but it probably doesn’t seem like the place to go for expensive, luxurious pizza. However, in Japan, one can order (for roughly $140) what is known as the Triple MilleFeuille.
The Triple MilleFeuille is essentially three thin crust pizzas with literally every topping Domino’s offers stacked in three cheesy layers.
$250 Pizza From Maze
Maze, in London, England is one of world-famous chef Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants. Here, guests can order the $250 pizza created by Ramsey himself.
Toppings on this pizza pie include cep mushrooms, pancetta, fontina cheese, onion puree, white truffle pasta and mozzarella made from buffalo milk. However, the thing that determines exactly how high the price tag will be are the white truffle shavings which are added tableside, at the customer’s discretion.
The Steveston Pizza company has pizzerias around the globe and a large menu of different pies. The most expensive pizza they offer is known as The C6 and is sold at their location in Vancouver, Canada.
When the C6 first debuted, it was, briefly, the most expensive pizza on the planet. The pie is made with lobster thermidor, Alaskan black cod and a side of Russian caviar.
$1,000 Pizza From Nino Selimaj
While this pie made by Nino Selimaj in New York City doesn’t have a name, it does have the prestige of being one of the most expensive pizzas in the world. This is a pizza for people with a taste for caviar, specifically, some of the best caviar in the world. Nino’s pizza is made with four different types of caviar, including Beluga and Black Russian Royal Sevruga. The caviar on this pizza alone costs around $820!
This pizza is cooked up by the chefs at Industry Kitchen in New York City. A single slice will run guests about $250 and the entire pie costs $2,000!
The name (and most of the cost) for this pizza comes from the edible 24k gold leaves it is decorated with. Other delicious ingredients of the 24k pizza are white stilton cheese, foie gras, Ossetra caviar, and truffles.
The World’s Most Expensive Pizza
While it has been dethroned as the priciest pizza in the world now, this pizza from Margo’s Pizzeria in Malta hasn’t changed its name and is still incredibly expensive (and well worth the cost). When it first came out 2010, it was the most expensive commercially-available pizza in the world.
This traditional thin crust pizza is made decadent by covering it in buffalo mozzarella, white truffles, and gold leaf.
Pizza Royale 007
Named after the famous character James Bond, this pizza from Oro in Glasgow, Scotland costs over four thousand dollars!
The pizza is made with some of the most expensive separate ingredients in the world, including caviar which has been soaked in Dom Perignon champagne, lobster marinated in cognac, venison medallions, aged balsamic vinegar, the best prosciutto, Scottish smoked salmon and, finally, 24k gold flakes.
Pizza For Lovers
This pizza from Favitta’s Family Pizzeria in Rochester, New York, can vary significantly in price but averages $8,200. The price of the pizza varies because the cost doesn’t come from the pie itself.
The Pizza for Lovers is a relatively simple, not to mention delicious, pizza that comes with a diamond ring and bottle of Dom Perignon. This is the pie for proposing to someone who loves pizza (hopefully as much as they love you)!
The Louis XIII is a pizza creation from the mind of one of the world’s most famous pizza chefs: Renato Viola. Renato now cooks and teaches the art of pizza crafting in Miami Beach, Florida. This, his most expensive pie, costs $12,000.
It is served in his customers’ homes by a select catering crew including Viola himself. The ingredients for this pizza include three types of the best caviar in the world, prawns, lobsters and the highest quality cognac found in the world today.
