Pizza Slice Amigurumi – Free Crochet Pattern

When you’re Italian, you know that pizza Margherita is the queen of all pizzas. So, when you’re Italian and crochet, of course, you end up with a Margherita Pizza Slice Amigurumi!

This crochet pizza has been such a fun & quick project to make.

I am now in doubt whether I want to gift these pizza slices to my older nieces who could use them as food toys, or turn them into some fun keychains and rock them like a real crochet/pizza nerd!

Each slice measures 2” (5 cm) in length by 2″ (5 cm) in width in the largest point.


This pattern is too small to accurately determine the gauge.

Pattern Notes

  • If the pattern says “sc 2”, it means that you have to crochet 1 sc into each of the next 2 sts.
  • (…) – Repeat the instruction within brackets for the indicated number of times.
  • The stitch count is indicated within brackets at the end of each line of instructions.
  • The pizza slice pattern is worked in the round. This means that you do not join with a sl st. Instead, you start crocheting the next round directly in the first st of the previous round.
  • The mozzarella decoration is worked in rows.
