Or is the last one 5/9?

Your first answers are right.
Pizzas left:
Cheese: 1/4
Pepperoni: 2/4
Supreme: 3/4
Total left: 6/4 = 1 1/2 
How does pepperoni change to 2/4?

I simplified it to 1/2

When you add and subtract fractions, all denominators must be the same.

Ok Thanks! I see how to do it now

You're welcome. :)
