Pizza is a well-loved culinary treat. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, then, to learn that chefs all around the world have their own elaborate (and expensive) versions of the food. No doubt, the prices of these pizzas are way out of our budgets. But we can always dream about stuffing our faces with the most expensive pizzas in the world.
This is the world’s most expensive pizza. The dough is made from organic Arabian flour, and it takes three days to prepare and rise. Plus, the toppings are pretty extreme—with Norwegian lobster, pink sea salt from Australia’s Murray River, seven varieties of cheeses, and three types of caviar, this is definitely the royal treatment. The pizza is also served with champagne and cognac. For the grand finale, three Italian chefs will prepare this pizza at your home. From the thoughtfulness behind the ingredients to the exceptional service, the Louis XIII was the whole package.
The Pizza Royale 007 was created as a way to donate funds to the Fred Hollows Foundation, and a lawyer bought it for his wife at a charity auction. The pizza starts with a sun-dried tomato sauce base. Some of the main ingredients are caviar soaked in Dom Perignon, Cognac-marinated lobster, prosciutto, Scottish smoked salmon, venison medallions, and vintage balsamic vinegar. The entire pie is then topped with 24-karat gold flakes—yes, you read that correctly.

Crème fraîche, six different types of caviar, Maine lobster tails, and wasabi all cover this delectable thin-crust pizza. While Nino’s Bellisima Pizzeria shut its doors in 2012, this incredible pie still remains among the most expensive pizzas in the world.

Fattiva’s Family Restaurant once created a very special pizza for Valentine’s Day. The restaurant is now closed, but the pizza’s legacy lives on. The pizza may seem like your traditional cheese pie, but we promise there’s more to it. Not only is it sprinkled with diamonds, but it also includes a bottle of Dom Perignon and a diamond ring. The price would change depending on the size of the diamond.
