Kale Pesto Flatbread

I'm always making different kinds of flatbreads at home for my wife and me. We love kale, so this recipe just seemed perfect for a quick dinner. It was immediately our favorite flatbread pizza once we tried it. We like to top it with cooked shrimp before baking it, too. —Adam Strickland, Brooklyn, New York
