That’s one pie-in-the-sky idea.

Four Texas skydivers — or should we say pie-divers — proved there’s never a bad time for pizza after sharing a slice while plummeting 14,000 feet. SWNS video of their stratospherically scrumptious stunt has gone viral online.

“This was the most incredible and awesome jump I’ve ever done,” Houston’s Lori Patalocco, 43, told SWNS of the sky-high pie plan. The epicurean daredevil said her friend Melissa loved pizza and wanted to test if she could eat a margherita slice while skydiving.

After practicing the high-flying feat for a few days at Houston’s Skydive Spaceland, the crew decided to put their money where their mouths were.

The minutelong clip starts off with a POV shot of someone jumping from a plane, like any standard skydiving video. All of a sudden, the camera pans to two air-crobats nonchalantly holding a pizza box between them while hurtling toward the ground. They then open the container as a third diver stabilizes their arms and they feed each other slices. Miraculously, only one piece flies up out of the box during the tricky maneuver, bringing new meaning to leavening the dough.

Fortunately, it appears that the team’s high-altitude hankerings have been sated by the stunt — at least for now.

“We were stoked and excited we could make Melissa’s idea come true,” gushed Patalocco. “We would love to try this again.”

She concluded that “eating pizza in the sky is way better than pizza on the ground.”

This isn’t the first time a pizza has hovered above the cloud line. Pizza Hut demonstrated that their product is out of this world after delivering slices to astronauts aboard the International Space Station last year.
