$4,200 pizza?
« on: August 01, 2011, 04:14:43 PM »
"Domenico Crolla, one of the U.K.’s foremost creators of Italian cuisine, operates a restaurant called Bella Napoli that specializes in gourmet pizzas going far beyond the average $2 slice. In 2006, Crolla created the most expensive pizza on record. Dubbed the "Pizza Royale 007," its toppings included cognac-marinated lobster, champagne-soaked caviar, venison and edible flakes of 24-carat gold. Crolla estimated that the pie was worth approximately $3,700, but it fetched $4,200 on an eBay auction from lawyer Maurizio Morelli."

It seems to me that they have confused expensive with good. To me, these topping are almost Cliché. I get the James Bond theme, notwithstanding, they show none of the true imagination that Bill, Don, and many other members give us on a regular basis for free!

No word on if they are using Bollinger champagne...

For that champagne they better be using a bottle of Salon on that pizza!  ......but that would be a waste of a good bottle.

I'll keep the bottle and Craig and I can go back and forth between glasses of the Bollinger and Salon. Cheers!
