Free Crochet Pattern: Pizza Slice & Toppings

(Shown in Caron One Pound Sunflower & Lace, Red Heart Super Saver Cherry Red, Hunter Green, Black & White)

If you follow my Instagram you probably recently saw my post about all the orders I've been filling for my youngest son, I've been having so much fun crocheting up his ideas! Today I am going to share a very easy pattern for a slice of pizza and toppings.

If you are making this pizza slice for a baby or young toddler, I suggest sewing the toppings on to the cheese portion before sewing the cheese down to the bottom crust. My toppings are not sewn down because my son is 5 and likes to switch out the toppings but the pieces are small for a really young one to be playing with.

For my example I used a couple different kinds of worsted weight yarn, I liked Caron One Pound best for this project but feel free to use your own favorite! Enjoy and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks for stopping by!

Switch to Yellow yarn.

Leave an extra long end here in the beginning before you join, you will use this long end to sew the cheese down to the crust later. 

With the point pointing towards you, join yellow yarn with a sl st in the space previously indicated to place a stitch marker. You can remove the stitch marker.
