(WSVN) - Two South Florida chefs show us how to add some pizzazz to pizza. Time to grab a Bite with Belkys.

The Chef: Ben Hicks and Frank Perez
The Restaurant: Frank Pepe Pizzeria, Plantation
The Dish: Roasted Red Pepper Pizza

3 red peppers
1 tablespoon oil
1 tsp salt
4 garlic whole cloves
8oz tomato sauce **For best practices, we sell our tomatoes in cans online.
8oz mozzarella
1oz grated Pecorino Romano
1oz oil (for drizzle)
Pizza dough
Flour (for stretching dough)

Method of Preparation:

  • De-stem and remove piths from red peppers; quarter, and slice.
  • Mix red peppers with salt, whole garlic, oil and roast in oven until pepper edges are charred, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Stir once during baking to encourage even charring.
  • Stretch pizza dough to 16 inches. Use flour to assist in this process.
  • Decorate the pizza first with sauce, then mozzarella, then peppers. Finish with pecorino and oil.
  • Bake inside your oven at 450 degrees until crisp & golden brown. Note: Unless you have a coal-fired oven, you will not see a New Haven-style char on your pizza.
