Vancouver's $450 pizza not a big seller

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 13 (UPI) -- The owner of a Vancouver specialty pizzeria offering a delicacy-laden version says at $450 a pop, he's only sold one, but scaled down $120 versions are moving.

The founder of the Steveston Pizza Co., Nader Hatami, told The (Vancouver) Province the simply named C6 pizza is topped with black Alaskan cod, thermidor of lobster and comes with a side dip of Russian Osetra caviar.

His second priciest offering, named the C5, costs $120 and Hatami says he sold seven of them.

"I never thought I'd sell so many," he said of the dish that's topped with smoked steelhead, lobster ratatouille and Icelandic scampi.

There are no walk-in quick orders, as customers have to order the C5 or C6 at least 24 hours in advance, he said.

Hatami's offerings are far from the world's priciest pizza offerings, however.

In 2008, an Italian chef offered to send a staff of three to customers' homes to create a $12,000 pizza containing mozzarella di bufala (water buffalo cheese), lobster and three types of caviar, all dusted with hand-picked Australian salt, the Province said.
