Goat cheese shrimp and pesto pizza

Hot summer nights call for quick and easy dinners. This shrimp and pesto flatbread is so easy and so tasty. Even my 6 year old son loved it! 😉 Oh how I wish I had a nice glass of wine to wash it down with tonight….. Some food just tasted better with wine…..Am I right?! 😉 I used some goat cheese chèvre on this flatbread but you could use any cheese that pleases you. This will be my last pizza post for a while because me and cheese need to take a break. It’s kind of like a break up really, but we always seem to get back together! I know cheese is not the best food for my particular body, but its soooo had for me to give up. It’s like that bad boyfriend you keep taking back because you just can’t live without him….. Anyways cheese rant over, I will find other awesome foods to blog about. Stay tuned……. 😉
