    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! To start the new year off with a clean slate, we’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. To give this crowd-pleasing pizza gourmet flair, you’ll make an savory oil for drizzling over it all using aromatic garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. It’s the perfect finish to crisp, golden brown crust layered with a classic tomato sauce, two kinds of peppers, and briny capers.
