$1000.00 Pizza - Caviar & Lobster Tail
« on: May 07, 2011, 08:07:31 PM »
Did you see on the Travel Channel the $1000.00 pizza.  They bake the crust then add creme fresh for the sauce add 4 different caviars and then thinly sliced lobster tail.  Now I can't remember if they had any cheese.  Thank goodness I don't eat caviar or lobster or I'd be bankrupt.

Regina,

You may have seen a rerun. The $1000 caviar pizza was introduced over four years ago: http://newyork.grubstreet.com/2007/03/1000_pizza_brilliant_or_just_a.html.

I seen that a while back too.First thought was YUCK...but those with moola will pay for it.

The toppings are so expensive hence the cost...I think they said they might profit 200 bucks a pie.I may be off some.

Moondance, I have made a couple of similar pizzas over the years, naturally I used lumpfish caviar, 2oz. jar over sturgeon and lox instead of lobster tail. I refuse to buy local lobster here as the idiot Mexican fisherman capture them illegally out of season. There will come a time when they will totally wipe out the lobster population in Banderas Bay as they have with other locations in Mexico. We have the same problem with Mexicans robbing sea turtle nests for eggs. I used crema Mexicano which is considerbly thinner in viscosity than creme fraiche and can be applied more thinly. The photo of the $1000 pizza quite frankly looks heavy handed and dense. I use very thinly sliced green onion and baby capers I rinse as toppings also. I just may have to do another here soon.

Don, I hope you post a picture of that.  Personally, I am leary of most seafood.  The pizza itself did not appeal to me one bit.  I agree with Ronzo, having lots of money does'nt mean you're smarter.
