I agree with JohnB. It would still be easy with Illustrator plus your icon is going to be scalable and it won't show pixels.

Anyway, the Photoshop way: (Please take note that there are a lot of ways of doing it. This is how I would do it)

First, make a circle:

Then, duplicate your first circle then change the second circle's color to white:

Then scale the new circle down just a little bit:

Grab your Lasso Tool;

Then draw a triangle-shaped selection according to your desired size of it:

enter image description here

Then make sure you are on your colored circle layer, then hit delete or backspace on your keyboard to delete the selected portion. Hit **ctrl+D** to deselect that portion you just selected

enter image description here

Add in your text and your done:

I hope this helps!
