    From the Test Kitchen

    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.

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 475°F. Halve the bread horizontally. In a bowl, combine the tomato sauce and Italian seasoning; season with salt and pepper. Wash and dry the bell pepper. Cut off and discard the stem. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the peppadew peppers. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste.
