You'd never know we were in such dire economic times. Adding to the spate of ridiculously priced food items, now you can blow your paycheck on a pizza for $450.
You'll have to go to Canada for this one, but the trip just might be worth it.
Stevenson Pizza Co., a pizzeria chain in British Columbia is making a pizza with thermidor of lobster, black Alaskan cod and a side of Russian Osetra caviar, reports the Calgary Herald. Called C6, you have to order it a day ahead, though. Not surprisingly, Nader Hatami, the owner of Stevenson Pizza Co. reportedly only sold one pie to “a very rich person.”
Hatami also has another, not-so-expensive pie, he sells for for $120. Called the C5, this one is made with roasted garlic, Icelandic scampi, smoked steelhead and lobster ratatouille. He's sold seven of those.
It's not the most expensive pizza in the world. According to the Guinness Book of World Records that distinction goes to Margo's Pizzeria, on the island nation of Malta, that sells a pizza with white truffles and 24-carat gold leaf on a thin crust for for about $2,400.
Would you pay $450 for pizza? Let us know.
