Pizza is generally known to be a fast food item that’s easy and cheap to make or buy. However, a restaurant in New York serves a $2,000 pizza that only 1% of the world population can afford and eat.
The $2,000 pizza is officially called ‘the fance’za’ or “epitome of decadence”, and is covered in strips of edible 24-Karat gold.
New York’s South Street Seaport, Industry Kitchen restaurant was inspired by the nearby Financial District, attracting wealthy customers from across the world, to create the “epitome of decadence” pizza.
“The pizza is extremely rich – if you’re in the mood for a lavish meal, this is the pizza for you,” Executive Chef Braulio Bunay says. It’s also one of the most expensive foods money can buy, but apparently preparing it in the “form of a pizza makes it more approachable.”
“The people get in shock because they never see in one dish all these special ingredients” Braulio told Insider.
