    Chefs! 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 a 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.
