Astronauts Made Pizzas in Space

06 December 2017

Paolo Nespoli, an Italian astronaut and Europe's oldest space explorer (he's 60-years old), thanked his on team members on Earth for sending his crew pizza ingredients after he "casually mentioned" that he missed pizza.

When he mentioned how much he was missing his favourite food, head of the ISS program Kirk Shireman sent up a specially modified kit.

Judging by a pizza slowly floating by a camera on the International Space Station, it looks like somebody prefers extra pepperoni on their weightless pie.

The first-ever pizza party in space is getting sky-high reviews. The astronauts had foundations for pizza, tomato sauce, cheese, salami, olives, olive oil, anchovy paste, and pesto. Nespoli, in orbit since July, declared the pizza "unexpectedly delicious".

"When you really, really miss pizza..."

Because everything in microgravity floats, the astronauts were careful to tether things down while slapping ingredients onto their pizza.
