From the Test Kitchen

Stewed peppers, and often tomatoes, make up the Italian antipasto known as peperonata. It’s typically served at room temperature like many other antipasti that come before a meal, and sometimes as a condiment to accompany main dishes. A hearty, whole wheat pizza topped with peperonata is by far one of the best ways to utilize the season’s best sweet peppers.
