Hello amigos!:)

This pizza is topped with tomato sauce, pepperoni and mushrooms.
The additional toppings of this pizza is: tomato sauce, pepperoni and mushrooms.

Correct me if I´m wrong, Which one appears to make more sense?

    The first one.
    Tomato sauce is standard on a pizza, I wouldn't call it an additional topping.
    "The additional toppings on this pizza are pepperoni and mushrooms." works, but I like it much less than the first sentence.

    If the tomato sauce, pepperoni and mushrooms are already on the pizza, I would call them toppings. I would say 'the following additional toppings are available: ham, mozzarella cheese, chopped tomatoes, anchovies...' i.e. pizza places often have standard pizzas with a number of toppings on, but they also offer additional toppings, which people can pay extra to add to their pizza and 'customize' it.
