Pesto Chicken Pizza

I recreated this recipe from one of our favourite restaurants in the area – Kettle Drums. They have such good pizza! The pesto sauce is a nice twist from the usual tomato and the goat cheese and grape tomatoes are nice and refreshing! I hope you enjoy this recipe it’s one of our favourites πŸ™‚
