2. Pizza for Lovers – $8,180

The “Pizza for Lovers” at Favitta’s Family Pizzeria in Henrietta New York, close to Rochester, is a great marketing idea due to the connection with Valentine’s Day but it seems that the restaurant closed in 2008 so we guess than not many pieces were sold. The pizza comes in the shape of a heart and aside from being a regular pizza it was sprinkled with diamonds, a diamond ring and a bottle of Dom Perignon. The owners probably expected couples to get engaged in their restaurant and they made up the perfect way to ask the question.

The most expensive pizza in the world can be found in Salerno, Italy and it is the creation of Renato Viola for a select crowd. With a size of 20 cm, enough for two, the ingredients are certainly exquisite and the creation of the dough itself takes 72 hours, letting it rest a long time before being cooked. Once the dough is made, the rest of the pizza is prepared on the spot. The flower is certified organic Aiab, salt comes from the Murray River in Australia to add more flavor as well as a pink color and this is just the beginning.

There are three types of caviar on top: Oscietra Royal Prestige, Kaspia Oscietra Royal Classic from the Iranian coast and Kaspia Beluga, all of them very rare and expensive. The lobster is brought from Norway and there is also mozzarella on the pizza along with seven other types of cheese.

To make it even tastier you have Champagne Krug Clos du Mesnil 1995 to enhance the fish taste, Cardenal Mendoza Carta Real Sanches Romate Finos brandy to make it unique and the last liquor is the Louis XIII Remy Martin cognac, the highest quality cognac on the market and the one that gives the name of the entire dish.
