In addition to gold, the pizza is topped with other rich ingredients from around the world, including foie gras and truffles from France, caviar from the Caspian Sea, and Stilton cheese from England.

“I drew my inspiration for the pizza from the Financial District, which is right next door to where we’re located,” chef Braulio Bunay said. “This area attracts people from all over the world, so I wanted to create a dish that celebrates that.”

Apparently putting gold on food in New York isn’t a new idea, according to the New York Daily News. One restaurant launched a doughnut covered with 24-karat gold in 2016.

For the gold topped pizza, Bunay said customers should order 48 hours in advance.
