After craving for his much-loved pizza slices for past 100 days, Paolo Nespoli finally declared the pizza "unexpectedly delicious".

When he mentioned how much he was missing his favourite food, head of the ISS program Kirk Shireman sent up a specially modified kit.

The crew used a variety of ingredients: flatbread, tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, olives, olive oil, anchovy paste and pesto.
