Crushed red pepper can best be described as hot, red pepper flakes; it is actually the dried fruit pod and seeds of a capsicum pepper. It is often referred to as the ‘pizza pepper’ since a common use is as a tabletop ‘shake-on’ for pizza and pasta dishes. The flavor is hot, pungent and biting. Durkee’s Crushed Red Pepper has 15-30,000 Scoville heat units (SHU).
