It is safe to badume that meals on board the International Space Station can be a bit monotonous. This week, however, the astronauts had a break from their monotonous rehydrated dinners when the mission control sent them some surprising ingredients.

the Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli craved a good old-fashioned pizza. So much so, that he had even begun to see pizzas in the clouds above the Earth. Being on the ISS, you can barely pick up the phone and ask for one, of course (at least not that far, surely Elon Musk would be thinking of providing that service).

The team worked together to combine their floating ingredients for the perfect pizza before settling for a few slices.
