It is the Beluga and Royal Sevruga caviar which really shift the price up, costing approximately US$820, with a price that fluctuates daily.

The pizza is then finished off with thinly sliced lobster and creme fraiche topped off with a salmon roll, chives and wasabi paste.


Nino Selimaj, who owns four other restaurants in New York city, said: ‘I’ve been in the city for 33 years and I serve caviar in all my restaurants.”

“‘I wanted something different for my pizza restaurant.”

“I didn’t want just a traditional marinara or margherita. I wanted something specific and unique and so I came up with the $1000 pizza, and it’s worth every penny.”

He certainly has a bit of a Hollywood inspired, “Lucky Luciano” look about him doesn’t he. You’d better pay up or else you’ll be swimming with the fishes!
