International Space Station crew member's wish comes true with pizza party

The video uploaded by NASA's Johnson Space Center displays the crew working together to make pizzas. Now, in perhaps an even bigger breakthrough, astronauts on the ISS are making pizzas in zero gravity and documenting the results on film.

It sure looks like one hell of a pizza party in space! But at the same time, it is a proven fact that pizza is unbelievable.

The Expedition 53 crew on the International Space Station received a special supply of pizza fixings after one member mentioned his craving during a live public event.

ISS program manager, Kirk Shireman, sent up the pizza-making ingredients after Italian Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli said how much he missed his favorite food.

Going to space and spending months at a time floating in the International Space Station may sound like a dream come true, but it does come with many sacrifices - such as having to do without the good things such as pizza.

By Nespoli's account, the final pies were "delicious", but admittedly, these pizzas were the kind that probably only a desperate astronaut could love.

Fortunately, the tomato paste that's slathered across the base acts as a kind of adhesive to keep the topping - in the video we see plenty of pepperoni and anchovies - from floating off. Now if only they could deliver in thirty minutes or less.
