Finishing

When you have finished all your desired toppings, sew them to the cheese/sauce piece.
Sew in ends.

Next, you need to crochet together the crust & the cheese/sauce. To do so, hold the Crust & the Cheese/Sauce with the wrong sides facing each other.

Using Tan:

With the cheese/sauce facing you, join yarn with a sl st in any space. Keep in mind, your pot holder hanger will be worked in this space at the end of the row.

Make sure you are working through all 4 loops as you go.

Ch 1, sc in same and in each sp around. Join with sl st. Turn so the crust side is facing you. (Ch 8, sl st to the open sp to the left), Ch 1, turn, work 14 sc over the ch, sl st into the same sp as the ch 8.

Fasten off and sew in ends, I like to use one of the ends to help make sure the loop isn't too floppy by sewing through the 1st & 14th stitches in the loop and then I sew the end up into the loop.
