What does a $99 pizza taste like?

What does a $99 pizza taste like?

Of course it's delicious. A shoe would taste lovely if it were blanketed with truffles. But would you pay $99 for Balena's pizza, available now through whenever the truffles run out (likely early 2014), even if it's studded with 5J jamon iberico and Perigord black truffles atop a truffled mortadella and leek crema sauce, and liberally sprinkled with Alba white truffle shavings tableside? Having tried this decadent thing, and literally feeling like time had stopped as a giant umami hand slapped me in the face, I can't say I'd pay for the experience (it was free as part of a media dinner).

Look, I know truffles are expensive, and that Balena couldn't possibly be making any money on this pizza, but you'd really have to be a truffles fanatic to appreciate why this pizza is worth the cost and then some. But if you're looking to impress your date by raining dollar bills on a pizza, or you're celebrating, say, making partner in your law firm, this is a far tastier and more memorable way to part with your cash than a bottle of Dom.
