Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and usually people like to celebrate with luxury chocolates, expensive eateries, and fancy gifts. I am the kind of person where I am satisfied with someone showing their love and appreciation for me by simply buying me (you guessed it) a pizza. But pizza can be made fancy, as I’ve recently found out. Until today I thought the most festive pizza places got for Valentine’s Day was to create heart shaped pizzas.
Firenza Pizza in Charlotte, North Carolina is serving a 10-inch pizza for Valentine’s Day for $500. Named the Golden Surf and Turf, the pizza is sprinkled with gold, along with its main toppings which include lobster bisque, lobster, filet medallions, and caviar. You even have to make a reservation 48 hours in advance just to order this pizza.
Another pizza restaurant, Gusto Pizza Co. in Des Moines, Iowa, is also offering a Valentine’s Day special. For $5000, you can order a pizza with your choice of toppings and also get a two-carat pair of Herman’s Fine Jewelry diamond earrings. Now $5000 seems like a lot, but all proceeds from these pizza sales will be donated to Variety, the Children’s Charity. In addition to that, all Gusto locations are donating one dollar to Variety for every pizza sold on February 14th.
Am I at a point in my life where I want to spend that much on a pizza? Not quite yet. But if someone is looking to put that kind of money down for this food blogger, I would certainly not refuse.
