Pictured: Astronauts hold the first-ever pizza party in space
Pizza has finally conquered space with astronauts on the International Space Station tucking into some "edible flying saucers".
Astronauts posted pictures 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 and olives.
After making their own individual-size pizzas, the six astronauts tossed and twirled them like floating frisbees, before devouring them.

They give the pies "12 thumbs up!"
Commander Randy Bresnik calls the pizzas "flying saucers of the edible kind".
Nasa's space station manager took pity on Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli's pizza craving and, in mid-November, shipped up all the ingredients on an Orbital ATK capsule.
Mr Nespoli, in orbit since July, declared the pizza delicious.
The crew also posted anincredibly clear and breathtaking aerial image of Dublin over the weekend.
The image was shared by NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik on his Twitter account.
"Good morning from @space_station, Dublin, Ireland #LoveDublin," he captioned the photo.
Bresnik has been in space since July and is scheduled to return to earth later this month.
He has remained on the International Space Station as part of the Expedition 52 and 53 crews.
