This tutorial shows how to draw a pizza in nine steps and provides examples and simple explanations for each stage of the drawing.
Drawing a pizza in some ways similar to making one. The various parts/toppings will be added in different steps of this tutorial.
It’s recommended that you use a pencil and draw light lines until the eight step of the tutorial.
Step 1 – Draw the Outline of the Pizza
Start by drawing an outline of the pizza. In this case basically the dough. As this pizza will be drawn as being viewed on an angle its shape will be somewhat similar to an oval.
You don’t need to worry too much about making it perfect as the pizza should actually be somewhat uneven in its shape.
One thing you should do though is draw the top part with slightly less of a curve.
Step 2 – Draw the Crust
Draw a smaller oval inside the previous one to create the crust. Make the top/far side of the crust narrower then the front/bottom side.
Step 3 – Draw the Slices
Please note that for this step you will want to make the lines slightly “wobbly” on purpose as the surface of a pizza is usually not perfectly flat.
To draw the slices first start by making a horizontal line (or close to one) but draw this line in a way where the bottom/front portion of the pizza will be larger/taller.
Next draw another line that roughly divides the pizza in half vertically. It can be on a slight angle so that the slices look more natural.
Step 4 – Draw the Slices Across the Crust
Now draw the slice lines across the crust. To emphasize it’s shape draw the lines as curves wrapping around it.
Step 5 – Draw the Pepperoni
Now draw some pepperoni by basically drawing more oval like shapes similar to the crust but much smaller. Also try and draw the slices smaller as they go more towards the back of the pizza.
Step 6 – Draw the Mushrooms
Add some mushroom and again try and draw the ones near the back slightly smaller than those at the front.
Step 7 – Draw the Peppers
Finally add some slices of pepper to finish the toppings.
Step 8 – Finish the Line Drawing
To make the pepperoni look a little less “flat” draw some broken up curved lines that sort of trace the the outer shape of the slices.
Once this is done you can go over your drawing with darker pencil lines or a black pen/marker.
Step 9 – Color the Pizza
You will probably want to use either paints like gouache/water colors or colored pencils to color the pizza. As markers well usually be too bright.
Make the crust an orange/brown, the cheese yellow, the pepperoni a red/brown, the mushrooms grey and the peppers green.
As already mentioned drawing a pizza is somewhat similar to making one as you gradually add the different toppings. This pizza is drawn with fairly traditional toppings but you can experiment with different kinds and see what you get.
