WATCH: Italian space crew prepare pizza and they loved it!

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.

It's not the 3D-printed pizza that astronauts could one day be scarfing down on lengthy missions to Mars, but it is, nevertheless, pizza in space.

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station made pizza in zero gravity over the weekend, making for an unusual spectacle of floating food.

This pizza party was star-studded.
