    Punch down dough; divide in half. Let stand 10 minutes.

    Place 1 portion dough onto greased baking sheet; press, with lightly floured hands, into 12-inch heart-shape. Repeat with remaining dough. Brush crusts with remaining butter. Sprinkle with sesame seed and pepper.

  8. STEP 8

    Bake on lowest rack of oven 10 minutes. Spread with pizza sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Top with pepperoni and green pepper cut-outs. Continue baking 10-15 minutes or until crust is lightly browned on edges.
