You might have had or heard about the craziest house parties, but nothing can beat this. A group of astronauts at the International Space Station were missing Pizza so much that they decided to have a pizza party in the outer space! Well yes, the manager of the ISS sent the ingredients for making pizza and using it, the astronauts gladly made the traditional Italian dish at zero gravity. Needless to say, they thoroughly enjoyed their ‘party’ which was ‘out of this world’.
How did astronauts working hard in space think of eating pizzas? It all started with a casual mention of pizzas during a conversation with their boss at a live public event, said Paolo Nespoli, who is currently at the International Space Station as part of Expedition 53. After this, the manager of the International Space Station, Kirk Shireman, decided to give a surprise to the astronauts in the space by sending all the ingredients needed to make pizzas. News reports state that ingredients for the pizza as well as an ice cream truck were launched into space on Sunday morning from Virginia, USA. NASA’s Johnson Space Centre then uploaded a video of the crew working together to make the pizzas, and it has been widely appreciated by netizens. Nespoli reportedly said that the pizzas in space were ‘unexpectedly delicious’. Fellow astronaut Randy Bresnik said all the pizzas were ‘tasty’.
NASA uploaded the video on their YouTube channel on December 2 and captioned it: ‘Pizza delivery to Space Station! Our Expedition 53 crew had a blast channeling our inner chef by building #tasty pizzas for movie night. Whose pizza looks the tastiest.’

There is something so unique and tasty about Pizza that everyone seems to love it. Across the world, the traditional Italian dish has been adapted to suit local palates and is hugely popular. It is, therefore, no surprise that the astronauts in space were missing the delicious pies. Now the next time someone makes fun of you for ordering a pizza all the time, you could quote the example of these astronauts!
