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

NASA’s ISS Program manager Kirk Shireman came through for the crew, sending up the pizza components with a recent supply ship.

In a now-viral video, the team recorded themselves making the pies with zero gravity.

NASA’s Randy Bresnik called the personal pizzas “flying saucers of the edible kind.”

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