Roasted bell peppers make a great addition to pizzas and sandwiches. Instead of placing the peppers directly under the broiler, we give them a little room by setting them in the middle of the oven. This extra distance allows them to roast a bit before their skins blister.

Game plan: The roasted peppers can be stored for up to 4 days before using.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the broiler to high and arrange a rack in the upper third of the oven. Place the bell peppers directly on the rack. Roast, turning occasionally, until they blacken and blister on all sides, about 20 minutes.
  2. 2Remove the peppers from the oven and place in a heatproof bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap or a baking sheet and let sit for about 30 minutes.
  3. 3When the peppers are cool enough to handle, remove their skins and slice them open. Remove the seeds and membranes and discard. Slice the peppers into 1/2-inch-thick strips and season with salt and pepper. If not using immediately, refrigerate for up to 4 days in an airtight container.
