I’ll admit something weird: I don’t like pepperoni pizza. I guess I am crazy or something, because everyone seems to love it except me (and both my kids, who are apparently as strange as I am). Even as a kid I would peel off the pepperonis whenever we ate pizza, turning it into a delicious cheese pizza. I am a total cheese pizza girl all the way. However, cheese pizza is kinda boring, don’t you think? When I decided to make some crochet pizza coasters, I decided FOR pepperoni.
Good choice, right?

I definitely recommend using cotton yarn to make these crochet pizza coasters. It’s not necessary, but cotton is better for crochet items that will be coming in contact with water (e.g. wash cloths, face scrubbies).
I made these pizza coasters with Knit Picks Dishie, which I like, but I also recommend Red Heart Scrubbie Smoothie. They are both soft and comfortable to work with.
In all honesty, I use hot glue in my crochet projects more than I should. It’s just so darn easy. You won’t be running these through the wash super frequently, so it was a short-cut I was willing to make. If you and I are on the same page, hot glue ‘dem pepperonis. It cuts out and time and of course tails that you would otherwise have to weave in. I just tied a small knot in the back and cut the tails close so they were behind when the pepperonis were glued in place.
Done and done.

You can either tie off and plan on gluing them later, or leave a long tail so you can sew them on later.
Construction for crochet pizza coasters:
Lay the crust on top of the pizza. Pull a loop up through the two loops on the crust (the loop where you left off and didn’t tie off) and sl st around the outside, sewing it to the coaster. At first, it will appear that it is too large, but it will fit perfectly once you have slip stitched all around.
I find hot gluing the pepperonis in place in a great way to attach them. You can also sew them in place. If you are gluing, make sure you get the glue as close to the outside of the pepperoni as you can, so the edges don’t curl up over time as you use them. A single dot in the middle won’t hold up.
