  5. Preheat the oven with 450°F. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese along the edges of the pizza. Spoon sauce over the pizza and top it with the pepper jack and mozzarella cheeses. Bake for 15 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is golden brown.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven. Use a knife to loosen the edges of the pizza and slide it onto a wire rack to cool slightly. Slice the pizza and serve with more tomato sauce on the top. Enjoy!!
