Preheat oven to 450 degrees and place pizza stone on lowest oven rack. Combine red peppers and pizza sauce in blender until smooth. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat, add red onion, green sweet pepper, and mushrooms. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Spread pizza sauce evenly over pizza crusts. Top with pepperoni and vegetable mixture, sprinkle with cheese. Bake pizzas one at a time for about 10 minutes each, or until crust and cheese are golden brown.
