NASA will be the first to admit that its food options in space remain limited, so it shouldn't be a surprise that the astronauts aboard the International Space Station shared video of their first-ever pizza party.
So ISS manager Kirk Shireman, chose to surprise his crew with the ingredients to make one of the world's most beloved food. Sure, time away from the house must be rough, but one of the most unbearable losses is having to leave tasty pizza behind on Earth.
As he explained in a recent tweet, he was "really, really" missing pizza, so he "CASUALLY" [his all caps] mentioned it to his boss during a live public event. Fellow Expedition 53 crew member, astronaut Randy Bresnik, uploaded a minute-long video of the assembly process.
The pizza kit included prepackaged Boboli crusts, a squeeze bottle full of pizza sauce, smoked gouda spreadable cheese wedges and various topping options, including olives and pepperoni.
Back in 2001, Pizza Hut announced it had delivered pizza to Russian cosmonaut Yuri Usachov as part of a promotional stunt.
It shows astronauts playfully using the lack of gravity to spin the pizza on their fingers and pass them in front of the camera.
