so you're only allowed one type of crust, one type of cheese, and one topping?

Just draw a simple tree diagram and you will see how many combinations there'll be

If one of each type is allowed (1 crust, 1 cheese, 1 topping), then \[\large \text{Answer} = \begin{pmatrix} \text{Number}\\ \text{of}\\ \text{Crusts} \end{pmatrix} \times \begin{pmatrix} \text{Number}\\ \text{of}\\ \text{Cheeses} \end{pmatrix} \times \begin{pmatrix} \text{Number}\\ \text{of}\\ \text{Toppings} \end{pmatrix} \] I'm using the counting principle http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/basic-counting-principle.html
