Pizza place in space? Yep. Why not. We’re in the 21st century, right? And they did. The crew in the International Space Station had a small treat for dinner, and did it in style.
The first-ever pizza party in space is getting sky-high reviews. Astronauts at the International Space Station posted pictures and a video over the weekend of their small, made-from-scratch pizza pies. 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, anchovy paste and pesto.
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.
They are prohibited from taking their own food on board after two astronauts, John Young and Gus Grissom, smuggled a contraband corn beef sandwich on board their spaceship, the Gemini 3 mission, in 1965.
