Nate, I'm splitting some pretty fine hairs here, but if you wanted a tiny bit more color/crispiness to the pepperoni you could use room temp sauce and tempered (maybe 1/2 hour at room temp) cheese. The warmer sauce and cheese shouldn't adversely effect the cheese melt either.

Scott I will give it a run.  Pre nuking the pepperoni helps too.

Some pepperoni will brown and burn faster than others too.

Or turn off convection and bake it for 10 minutes instead of 5.

Better pepperoni could also help.
Cheaper pepperoni brands (i.e. - Hormel) have too much fat in them, and over-char easily.
Leaner pepperoni (like Dietz and Watson, Margherita, etc.) can hold up better to a longer bake time.

Bottom cooks too fast with or without convection.  Will try turning it down to 450 next batch.

Pizza De Mayo is approaching. Perhaps it is time for the great Chicago Pizza Forum coalition to converge for some pizza happenings.
