International Space Station astronauts host 'out of this world' pizza party

An awesome new NASA video shows the space station's six Expedition 53 crewmembers getting set for "movie night" by (what else) making out-of-this-world pizzas! The fixings flew up last month on a commercial supply ship, and the crew wasted little time pulling out the flatbread, tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, olives, olive oil and anchovy paste and pesto.

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

Commander Randy Breznik named on his tweets pizzas "flying saucers that can be eaten".

Bresnik dubbed the crew the "Intergalactic Pizza Devouring Squad", or IPDS.

Drop in conversation with the head of the ISS program, kirk Chairmana that he really misses national food, Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli did not expect such a surprise.

After craving for his much-loved pizza slices for past 100 days, Paolo Nespoli finally declared the pizza "unexpectedly delicious".

It's all thanks to Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli. He will land in Kazakhstan on December 14, along with Bresnik and a Russian.
