New York City’s Industry Kitchen is selling what is being called the world’s most expensive pizza pie at $250 per slice or $2,000 for the whole darn thing.
Why is it so expensive? For starters, the whole thing is made with flakes of 24-karat gold from Ecuador. It is also topped with white Stilton cheese imported from England, French foie gras, truffles, and Ossetra, a caviar from the Caspian Sea that generally costs $12,000 per kilogram.
“It is the epitome of decadence,” the restaurant’s chef, Braulio Bunay, told Town and Country Magazine. “The pizza is extremely rich—if you’re in the mood for a lavish meal, this is the pizza for you.”
Bunay said the pizza was inspired by the extreme wealth of Manhattan’s Financial District, where the restaurant is located.
