To give this crowd-pleasing pizza gourmet flair, you’ll make an easy oil for drizzling over it all using aromatic garlic and crushed red pepper flakes, for just a hint of heat. It’s the perfect finish to crisp, golden brown crust layered with a classic tomato sauce, two kinds of peppers, and briny capers.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 475°F. Halve the bread horizontally. In a bowl, combine the tomato sauce and Italian seasoning; season with salt and pepper. If necessary, grate the fontina on the large side of a box grater. Wash and dry the sweet peppers; cut off and discard the stems, then remove the cores. Halve the peppers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the piquante peppers. Grate the Grana Padano on the small side of a box grater. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). 

Assemble & bake the pizza:
2 Assemble & bake the pizza:

Place the halved bread on a sheet pan, cut side up. Evenly top with the seasoned tomato sauce, grated fontina, sliced sweet peppers, chopped piquante peppers, capers, and half the grated Grana Padano; season with salt and pepper. Bake the pizza 15 to 17 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the edges of the bread are lightly browned and crispy. Carefully transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 2 minutes.

Make the spicy garlic oil:
3 Make the spicy garlic oil:

While the pizza bakes, in a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, as much of the garlic paste as you’d like, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the pizza to be. Season with salt and pepper.
