To caramelize sweet-potato wedges, first preheat the pan in the oven, so the potatoes sizzle when added to the pan. They will be more crisp if you stir them a few times as they bake.
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
4 small sweet potatoes, each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges (about 1 3/4 pounds)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
