When Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency told his boss about his pizza craving in a live event, it spurred a special delivery to the ISS.
Astronauts then enjoyed a rare pizza night, although their pies weren’t in the form of the ooey, gooey, cheesy goodness we’re used to seeing.
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.
