Sprinkle over the sage, drizzle with honey, and season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Top with torn mozzarella. 5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted. 6. Top the pizza with pomegranates and sesame seeds. Serve drizzled with additional honey.
