    $1,000 pizza pie? That's amore!

    NEW YORK (Reuters) -- A New York restaurateur has cooked up the world's most extravagant pizza - a $1,000 pie topped with six kinds of caviar and fresh lobster.

    Nino Selimaj, who runs six pizza restaurants in the Big Apple, on Wednesday unveiled the Luxury Pizza, a 12-inch thin crust topped with caviar, lobster, crème fraiche and chives. Cut into eight, it works out at $125 a slice.

    "I know this won't be for everyone but there are people in New York who can afford it and once tried, they'll be back for more. It is delicious," said Selimaj, who moved to New York from Albania about 29 years ago.

    "Sure, some people will say it is just a publicity stunt, but I have researched this for over a year and think there is a demand. I have already sold one," he told Reuters.

    Selimaj said Nino's Bellissima in Manhattan, the only one of his restaurants to offer the dish, needs 24 hours notice for the gourmet dish because it orders the caviar in advance.

    "But where better to experiment with pizza than in New York where people love their pizza?" he asked.

    If diners are still hungry after the Luxury Pizza, they can always head over to nearby restaurant Serendipity, which sells a $1,000 ice-cream sundae called Golden Opulence that is covered in 23-karat edible gold leaf.

    I sell a $1000 sundae, too.

    Its actually just a turd with whipped cream on it, but it tastes about the same as a pizza with caviar.

    I HATE people who waste money.
    I'd like to punch every person in the face that buys one of these pizzas.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.
