Let’s begin with some notes on the sculpted pizza basis cake form :

Pepperoni Pineapple Pizza Cake
The Pizza Basis 
I began with 2 circular layers of cake, less than 1″ high. This time, it was wet chocolate cake with vanilla icing. (Remember to make an icing dam – I love swiss meringue buttercream for the dam – then fill with the desired filling.) The second layer of cake was put ontop.
The “crust” of the pizza was composed  by piping a ring of swiss meringue around the edge. The full cake was crumb coated, making it as smooth as possible
Cake wrapped in fondant. Texture, lumps and bumps were added for realism.
The cake was colored. In this case, the cake was airbrushed with edible food color utilizing a incorporation of brown, orange and yellow. (This can be done using powdered colors too.) A very thin layer of icing was spread on-top, to represent the sauce. The icing was colored using a incorporation of red, brown and orange for a more natural saucy color.
Next came preparing the ornaments . AKA, the toppings!

The Fondant Pepperoni:

The fondant was blended into a “hot doggy” color. Red, peach and brown. It was then rolled out as thin as possible, cut out circles, then edges were curled using a ball tool. The circles were let to dry.
Then the pepperoni was painted with a layer of thinned red, peach, brown. For added texture, they were then dabbed with clean paper towel. After, the edges were airbrushed using brown food colouring. eventually , shine was added using a thin layer of vegetable oil.

The Fondant Pineapple:

A light yellow fondant was blended . The color was only slightly blended in for a slight marbling effect.
A pineapple “log” was hand-formed and then put into the freezer, just long enough to harden.
After the fondant log had hardened in the freezer, uniform pineapple segments were cut.
Realistic texture added using a paring knife.

The Fondant Cheese:

A chunk of off-white fondant was frozen until hard. Cheese was grated on a cheese grater then directly spread over the cake in a thin layer.
Fondant cheese was melted partly using a blowtorch.
Putting it all together:
