This pizza and whoever buys it have at least one thing in common: they're both pretty rich.

A pie topped with caviar, French truffles, foie gras, English Stilton cheese and 24-karat gold flakes is now on the menu at South Street restaurant Industry Kitchen — for just $2,000.

The heavy price-tag was inspired by monied Wall Street, which is just a couple of blocks from the restaurant. The concept is also meant to elevate the lowly pizza into the fancy food stratosphere, chef Braulio Bunay told DNAinfo New York in a statement.

"I chose to transform the usually humble pizza into a luxury dish, because people don't usually see pizza as a high-end item," said Brunay. "But here at Industry Kitchen, we take pizza very seriously — we even rest our dough for 48 hours before it hits the oven — and the 24K pizza really showcases that."

If you're looking to splurge for that sparkly (and pungent) pizza, you'll need to order it two days before you head to the 70 South St. restaurant, which sits right underneath the FDR at Maiden Lane.

The pizza has been on the menu since November — no word on whether anyone has ordered it yet.
