Crochet Pizza Pattern

I crocheted these amazing donuts from a Lion Brand Yarn free pattern a few months ago. And since I’ve been kind of in a food kick. My friend Laura requested a pizza slice. Said she’d frame it and hang it on her wall if I made one for her. So I searched and I searched, to no avail, I couldn’t find a pizza slice pattern anywhere (at least not for free) and then I figured, let me make some sketches and figure out how best to build a pizza slice from scratch, no pattern. Let’s make a pattern!

Pizza Bottom and Top CrustNotes:
CH = Chain
ST = stitch
SL = Slip Stitch
SC = Single Crochet
SCDEC = Single Crochet Decrease
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
R = Round/Row
I did all this with an H/8-5.00mm hook

BOTTOM CRUST
Work in Rounds, do not turn.
You start at smallest point of crust and work up to make a double sided triangle (if you pulled it open, it’s a cone) as you work the rounds keep it flat at the “2 SC in one SC”.
CH 3, SL in first CH to make tiny circle.
Round 1: SC 4 times in center of circle. – 4STs
R2: SC 3 in each SC, 2 SC in last SC. – 5STs
R3: SC 2, 2 SC in one SC, 2 SC. – 6STs
R4: 2 SC in one SC, SC 1, 2 SC in one, SC 2. – 7STs

Cut with really long tail so you can now sew this piece using it’s tail to the crust in the appropriate place.

R14: DC 3, CH 1 for turning. – 3STs (ends before row below ends)
R15: HDC 2 , now work around edges as best as you can that makes sense with your gauge to fit over the sauce layer, SL 37, SC 3, HDC 3, SC 4, SL 34, SC 2, end with SL. – 85STs
Cut with really long tail so you can now sew this piece using it’s tail to the sauce in the appropriate place.

pizza-finishedPEPPERONI
Make as many as these as you deem appropriate.
Work in Rounds, do not turn.
Round 1: CH 2, turn, SC 4 in second CH.
R2 – whatever makes sense: Just work around using SC until you think your pepperoni fits the proper size of your pizza.
SL to fasten, Cut with long tail so you can now sew this piece using it’s tail to the cheese in a place that makes sense.
Try different sizes and sporadic placement so your pizza looks more realistic.

Note: I made my pepperoni using two different red yarns. You CH them together, then as you SC you hide the unused color in your STs and then you can pick up the unused and hide the original color, it’s really simple, but you have to leave both tails long and sew both in, a bit more work, but it makes for a faceted color that looks better for meat chunky pepperoni.
