Astronauts aboard ISS throw first pizza party in space

He mentioned that he was really missing his favourite food Pizza, so NASA made a decision to send him up the ingredients.

The ingredients were delivered to the spacecraft after Italian Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli "casually mentioned" how much he missed pizza.

NASA sent Nespoli and the crew pizza ingredients in November as part of a cargo-delivery mission to the International Space Station, helped by aerospace company Orbital ATK, which launched the rocket that carried the supplies.

He said: "When you really, really miss pizza..."

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station threw a pizza party in space. Nespoli, in orbit since July, declared the pizza "unexpectedly delicious".

Astronauts, like Kjell Lindgren and Brit Tim Peake, share incredible photographs taken from space.

Tim Peake become the first Briton to walk in space and live on the International Space Station (ISS).

Once assembled, the pizzas were tossed and twirled like floating frisbees before the crew heated and ate them.

He wrote in a tweet that the crew "had a blast channeling our inner chef by building tasty pizzas for movie night".

Not the first time Italian astronaut prepares in the conditions of weightlessness.
