Making pizza on the International Space Station

Paolo Nespoli‏, an Italian astronaut who's now orbiting our planet aboard the International Space Station, missed pizza so much that he boldly brought it up to his boss during a live streamed public event.

The idea was reportedly cooked up by NASA's space station manager, Kirk Shireman, who learned that Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli was craving pizza and sent the ingredients up on a capsule in mid-November.

We all know Earth pizza - in all its hot, melty, oily goodness - is great. Cheese is notably not on the menu.

The International Space Station has been colonized by thousands of microbe species, according to a new study in the journal PeerJ. On Thanksgiving, the team even put together their own holiday-like meal with smoked turkey, mashed potatoes, cornbread dressing and cherry blueberry cobbler (the more traditional pumpkin pie is not a standard menu item). No need to worry about putting the pizza down in between bites - it just floats there.

"We could not get the color that one would associate with cheesecake, and the texture that most people would consider acceptable for a cheesecake", said Kloeris. Despite this, the community of microbes living alongside the astronauts appears robust. The crew hastened to use them and organized a movie night. Nespoli, along with NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik and Roscosmos commander Sergey Ryazansky, began their outer space mission in July and have continued to share photos and videos of their findings.

While the menu is fairly expansive, everyone is bound to miss some of their favorite foods, like pizza.
