Pizza covered in gold costs 2000

Domenico Crolla

The world's most expensive pizza, covered in gold you can eat, was made today for a Valentine's meal in Italy.

Chef Domenico Crolla, who lives in Scotland, flew back to his home country of Italy to make the romantic meal which cost a whopping 2150.

Pizza Royale 007, named after the James Bond film Casino Royale, was covered in gold, lobster and expensive fish eggs soaked in champagne.

Mr Crolla told reporters: "This is the perfect romantic Valentine's gift."

The posh pizza was made to raise money for a charity which is working to stop people in third world countries being blind.

It was eaten by Italian husband and wife Maurizio and Sabrina Morelli who paid the cash for the special Valentine's feast.
