Would You Pay $50 For A Pizza?

Very rarely, would I do a review on a restaurant twice. But I just had the best Pizza, & the most expensive to date! The taste is still lingering in my mouth as I’m writing this post. So where can you find this gourmet Pizza? Can you guess the ingredients just by looking at this pix?

Dining Review Featured @ S'pore Dine

Following my 1st visit to "Sky" At Il Cielo, Hilton Singapore, I knew I just had to return to try their Pizzas, which have all my fave ingredients to satisfy my discerning taste buds.

The Pizza Bosco Porcini @ S$42 excl taxes was my top pick, with bits of cured Italian Sausage & TRUFFLES! Not only were there Black Truffle shavings, the server explained that the Chef also used Truffle Oil in the Pizza & lined the base with Truffle cream sauce. So there're actually lots of Truffles in there.

I love the earthy mushroomy smell & taste with each bite, especially their crispy waffle-thin crust. Simply the best Pizza I’ve ever tasted to date!

For those who’re not familiar with this priceless delicacy, Trufficulteurs use specially-trained dogs to find these buried treasures each year. Truffles are among the most expensive natural foods in the world, selling for hundreds or thousands of US$/pound!

Besides the Bosco, I also had the Capesante @ S$22, which is a trio of Scallops. I had the same thing during my last visit & I remembered it was good.

I couldn’t get enough of the Pizza, so I ordered a take-out: il Cielo Pizza @ S$48++. This one has a mouthful of Lobster & generous toppings of Caviar on each slice of Pizza. My two guys at home prefer this but Truffles Pizza is no doubt my No. 1!

So what is your favourite Pizza toppings? Where is the best Pizza you’ve tried? Would you pay S$50 for one?

  3. Dblchin, u're some gourmet lover too, aren't u?? I wouldn't mind if it's free too :) I'll chk out your blog soon.

    Ken, Domino's not very popular in S'pore. Wonder why. Pizza Hut seems to draw more crowd. Having tasted authentic pizzas in Italian restaurants, the normal eateries can't satisfy my taste buds. LOL!

  4. If its worth the taste, why not Shirley because I think we deserve to treat ourselves to food we enjoy. I will go for it although pizza is a once a while indulgence for me.

  5. Food that is prepared with the best ingredient & created with passion is worth every penny.

    Will definitely pay for it :)

    KF, that's a brilliant idea!

    Diana, good to go on a date then u don't have to pay :)

    Henry, hahaha! Taste is WOW too!

  13. $50 for a pizza?? I can eat it at a buffet restaurant with another person. Unless it is really delicious. Will pay a visit to Shirley's Luxury Haven soon.

  14. David, I couldn't agree more. Many would rather go for buffet with this price. For me, it's quality over quantity. Heehee! Will pop by your blog soon. Thks for visiting!

  16. My new favorite pizza topping just became truffles. Or lobster. Or both! (No wonder you went back, Shirley!) Definitely worth the price -- especially when you consider it costs $20 (or more) to eat "fast food."

  17. I love pizza, its one of my fave indulgence but wow, those pizzas are very dear, but they are of top quality ingredients and from the pictures, they look absolutely delicious! My mouth was watering as you described the Pizza Bosco Porcini.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Shirley!

    Cheers,

  26. Wow Shirley! You are seriously making my mouth water just by your descriptions of the pizzas. I LOVE pizza (hubby doesn't like it all that much though). The truffle pizza sounds amazing with the truffles, truffle oil, and truffle cream. I think I WOULD actually pay $50 to try that pizza. Then I'd probably be down $100's cause I'd probably wouldn't be able to get enough. Haha. I'd have to sell my car just to eat pizza. Lol.
    My toppings would probably include truffles and lobster.
