Would you pay $200 USD for a pizza? Guests at Taj Exotica Resort and Spa Maldives do! In fact, the triple digit Italian ultimate is one of their most talked about items.
Topped with the most premium ingredients from around the world, the “Quattro” is just about guaranteed to make any self-proclaimed epicurean drool.
The first quarter is a flavoursome spread of slices of duck Margret and foie gras honouring France and its fine food heritage. Crossing the globe, Wagyu beef Carpaccio and Kalamata olives represent Australia, while the pizza’s Italian origins are given a nod with the toppings of porcini, black truffles and prosciutto from Parma. Lastly, homegrown Maldivian reef lobster is given extra extravagance with a liberal crown of Iranian caviar.
Furnishing additional value and flavour is a sumptuous layer of Tasmanian cream cheese, which keeps the jewels on the surface firmly attached to the thin crispy hand thrown base. Glowing in an eye-catching visual feast across all is the ultimate of ingredients, a generous coat of 24-carat edible gold leaves from the Palace Kitchens of India. Brought tableside by the chef himself, The 200 Dollar Pizza is presented with a drizzling of 30-year old aged balsamic. If that’s not a dish to be reckoned with then I challenge you to feed me something that is.
And, if you’re going to go this far with a pizza, there’s no better companion than a glass of bubbly: a crisp chilled French Champagne, Moet Chandon, does the honours.
Ensuring that your holiday tales are believed when you return home from your adventures, the memory is made forever with a signed photograph of you with the pizza and the chef.
