Heat oven to 400°.
Place turkey, breast-side down, on a rack in a large baking dish; rub salt and pepper over it.
Cover with foil, poke holes in foil, and roast for 45 minutes.
Turn breast-side up; roast until an instant-read thermometer registers 160°F in the breast and 170°F in the thigh.
Let rest for 30 minutes.
