Position oven rack in top third of oven; preheat to 450 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set a wire rack inside the baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.

Cut off and discard wingtips from chicken wings; separate the flats (parts that don't look like drumsticks) from the drumettes and pat dry.

In a large bowl, toss wings with cooking oil, salt and pepper. Arrange on prepared rack in a single layer. Bake until skin is crispy, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine glaze ingredients from your chosen flavor combo (for pepperoni pizza version: mix only the tomato paste and olive oil together). Transfer 1/4 cup of glaze to a small bowl and toss the wings in the remaining glaze to coat them well.

Arrange wings on rack again in a single layer. (At this point, if making pepperoni pizza flavored wings, press the mozzarella cheese and diced pepperoni onto the top of the wings). Bake until glaze is shiny and browned in spots and chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Season.

Transfer wings to large platter; dab with reserved glaze, and sprinkle with desired toppings or garnish.
