Getting to explore space sounds pretty darn cool, but the experience comes with many sacrifices. Sure, time away from family must be rough, but one of the most heartbreaking losses is having to leave delicious pizza behind on Earth.
Paolo Nespoli, an Italian astronaut who’s currently orbiting our planet aboard the International Space Station, missed pizza so much that he boldly brought it up to his boss during a live streamed public event.
The result? Pizza in space.
According to a tweet from Nespoli, his boss delivered the ingredients needed to construct some out of this world pizza pies. Fellow Expedition 53 crew member, astronaut Randy Bresnik, uploaded a minute-long video of the assembly process.
We all know Earth pizza — in all its hot, melty, oily goodness — is great. But space pizza? Well, just see for yourself.
In preparation for movie night the astronauts gathered together to sauce, top, and (easily) toss their pies in zero gravity. And while the pizza might not have been up to Earth standards, Nespoli said they were “unexpectedly delicious.”
Regardless of taste, there’s no doubt that making pizza is definitely more entertaining after you leave the planet.
Enjoy up there, guys!
