If you're a fan of seafood, you'll enjoy the C6, which features lobster thermidor, black Alaskan cod, prawns, smoked salmon, and Russian Osetra caviar.

Nino's Bellissima in New York City

Created by Nino Selimaj, the owner of Midtown's now shuttered Nino's Bellissima, this $1,000 pie featured thin crust, six different types of caviar, two lobster tails and is only 12-inches wide. Supposedly it costs them $720 to make – that's a pretty reasonable markup.

Domenico Crolla in Scotland

What you'll pay: $4,200

The 12-inch Pizza Royale 007 is inspired by the lavishness of James Bond. Ingredients include caviar soaked in Dom Perignon, lobster marinated in 100-year-old cognac, venison medallions, Scottish smoked salmon, high-quality prosciutto, and vintage balsamic vinegar. Plus, it's finished off with a sprinkle of 24-carat gold flakes on top.

Louis XIII in Salerno, Italy

What you'll pay: $12,000

Conceived by master pizza chef Renato Viola, the most expensive pie takes a total of 72 hours to prepare. Perfect for an opulent date night in, the pie is only large enough to feed two people and is served at your own home.

The dough is made from organic Arabian flour and dusted with Murray River pink salt. The extravagant toppings include three rare types of caviar, Norwegian lobster, and seven types of cheese.

In addition, the pizza is served with hand-selected beverages, including Carta Real Sanches Romate Finos brandy and Louis XIII cognac, which is considered the rarest, most expensive cognac on the market.
