If you’re used to eating pizzas under $10, this news may be a little too hard for you to digest. However, in giving the ultimate fast food favorite a spin of sorts is the luxurious Address Beach Resort at Dubai’s Marina Beach.

The ultra-extravagant take on the classic Italian dish includes a generous helping of white Alba truffles. The seasonal ingredient is referred to as the diamond of the culinary world and is undoubtedly pricey and delicious too!

For creating the $789 pizza magnatum, Chef Calo sourced the Truffle from Dubai’s so-called “Truffle Man” Massimo Vidoni. However, those willing to give the pricey dish a skip can also try the other options at the restaurant such as marinara doppio crunch with twice-cooked dough Icollori dell’orto, a vegetarian pizza topped with creams of courgettes, aubergine, peppers, pumpkin, and friarielli, and more.
