Multiple Counts in one query

I am relatively new to SQL and would like some help on how to do multiple counts in one query.

An example would be:

table: Sales History

EmployeeID ItemSold
0 1
2 2
2 1
0 2
1 1
2 3
2 2
0 2
2 1
1 1
0 3
1 2
1 3
2 3

How do I write a query to return how many of each item each employee sold summary?

EmployeeID Item1 Item2 Item2
0 1 2 1
1 2 1 1
2 2 2 2

I can get it to count one Item, with the following select statement,

SELECT SalesHistoy.EmpID, Count(SalesHistory.ItemSold) as Item1 From SalesHistoy WHERE SalesHistoy.ItemSold=1 GROUP BY Sales.Histoy.EmpID

but have struggled to get it to work for more items without using multiple queries.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
