Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Line baking pans with parchment paper.
Place bacon strips on the lined baking sheets.
In a small bowl mix the sugar, pepper and chili flakes.
Spread the sugar mixture over the bacon as evenly as possible.
Put baking sheets in oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, take spoon and spread the liquid that has formed at the bottom of the pan over the bacon.
Let bake for another 20 minutes.
Flip bacon strips to ensure that they cook evenly on both sides.
Bake until bacon is nice and crispy. This should take about another 15-20 minutes.
Take bacon out of pan and place on cooling rack to let cool.
Serve and enjoy!
