(WCBSTV.com) NEW YORK – According to the report, New Yorkers can now find out what the world’s most expensive pizza tastes like. Manhattan restauranteur Nino Selimaj, now offers a $1,000 pizza on his restaurant’s menu at Nino’s Bellisima.

The article said, “Forget traditional cheese and pizza sauce, the record-priced pie will be topped with creme fraiche, chives, eight ounces of four different kinds of Petrossian caviar, four ounces of thinly sliced Maine lobster tail, salmon roe, and a little bit of spice with wasabi.”

“Unlike your typical pizza, this one won’t be cooked, after all, that would spoil the fish. The 12-inch pie is sliced into four pieces, which comes to $250 per slice,” the report said.

“Let them say I’m crazy,” Selimaj says. “But I believe in this product, and it’s gonna sell! My luxury pizza will become as famous as a night at the Waldorf Astoria. When Mr. Chow’s introduced upscale Asian Cuisine several years ago, people couldn’t imagine paying hundreds of dollars for Chinese food. Now upscale Asian cuisine is as common as New York hotdogs. Upscale Pizza will be next,” Selimaj said.
