Being a New Yorker means eating a ton of incredible pizza. Even if you don't particularly like the stuff (and who are you, really) you still understand that while it's called the Big Apple, it's not famous for them. There are hundreds of varieties of pizza, from every corner of the planet, and at just about every price. You can grab a 99 cent slice, and now, you can order a $2,000 pie.
That’s right, you can spend an entire month’s rent on one pizza at the South Street Seaport eatery, Industry Kitchen. The overly-indulgent pie is topped with stilton cheese, foie gras, truffles, Ossetra caviar, and 24-karat gold leaves. The wood-fired masterpiece is the work of Executive Chef Braulio Bunay, and it is the absolute essence of decadence. Just remember that you have to order it 48-hours ahead of time, so if you’re looking to splurge on some drunken last-minute grub this New Year's Eve, look elsewhere.
And while $2,000 is a huge chunk of change, this pizza still isn't the most expensive in the world. That title goes to Italy's Louis XIII pizza, which sells for a whopping $12,000. It takes 72 hours to prepare, and is topped with not one, but three types of caviar (Oscietra Royal Prestige, Kaspia Oscietra Royal Classic, and Kaspia Beluga), lobster, Champagne Krug Clos du Mesnil 1995, and more.
But can we just say — whether you spend $2,000 or $12,000 on a pizza, you’ve officially made it and can die happy. #lifegoals.
