Do your friends call you the foodie of the group? Just how far are you willing to go for the perfect bite? Here’s a bit of perspective for those who think they’ll go the distance for food. These are five of the most expensive foods in the world.

Pizza Royale 007

Weighing in at 12 inches, this US $4200 pizza, created by Domenico Crolla at Bella Napoli in Glasgow, Scotland, is by far the most expensive pizza in the world. Though, if you’re looking to earn your “foodie” status, this is the place to start. Mr. Crolla tops his pizza with cognac-marinated lobster, prosciutto, venison medallions, and Dom Perignon-soaked caviar. Oh, did we mention there are 24 carat gold flakes as well?

Fleurburger 5000

Moving from one fast food to the next, we’ve got the Fleurburger 5000 which, predictably, rings up at US $5000. Available only at Fleur Restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada, the burger is made of Wagyu beef and comes with a generous slather of black truffle sauce.

Almas Caviar

Almas Caviar is harvested from the Caspian Sea (one of the most dangerous fishing areas in the world) and are collected from Beluga sturgeon. If that wasn’t enough to warrant the US $25,000 price tag, the caviar is also aged for 20 years and then exported in solid gold tins.

Frrrozen Haute Chocolate

Clever, Serendipity 3 in New York City, very clever. The punny hot chocolate isn’t actually a food, but we’re assuming the gold flakes adorning the lavish beverage might give it the body to almost take it out of the drink category. This one needs to be ordered two weeks in advance, but does come in a golden goblet with a golden spoon. And it better for US $25,000.

Italian White Alba Truffle

Our top contender by far is the Italian White Alba Truffle, which goes for approximately US $106,000 per mushroom. And it’s not even prepared. The truffles can only be found in the hills of San Miniato in Tuscany, Italy, and are tricky to find even if you’re in the region.
