Did you catch Matt, Al and
Katie Meredith biting into the $1,000 pizza this morning on Today? They tried to smile with their mouths full of the noxious concoction, but I pictured them wanting to rake off their tongues a la Tom Hanks in that classic scene from Big.
That honor belongs to a Scottish chef who showered his pie in gold leaf. At least that $3,700 pizza was auctioned off for charity. The pizza owner in New York is actually planning to sell his pizzas for a grand on a regular basis. Hard to believe, but he says he's already sold two.
For my money (and that's about $992 less than the Today show pizza), Joe's on Eighth Avenue in south Fort Worth makes the best New York style pizza in Cowtown. No frilly lobster or caviar toppings.
Where's your favorite pizza joint? And how much would you pay for a pricey pie?
