Chiles, Crushed Red Flakes

Crushed Red Chiles

Crushed red pepper flakes are an icon of Italian family restaurant tables. Their use as a condiment originated in Bukovo, a village in North Macedonia, where the spicy red peppers grow abundantly. This cheery mix of flakes and seeds adds moderate heat to tomato sauce, homemade sausage, and, of course, pizza!

There's a reason why they're also referred to as "pizza pepper!" Use a pinch to add a modest heat to Italian pasta dishes, Asian stir-fry, and South American adobos. Crushed red pepper ranges from 15,000 to 45,000 on the Scoville heat scale.
