Goat Cheese Sauce Pizza with Red Peppers & Tomatoes

So tonight, I'm channeling my culinary genius.

This fabulous pizza was the result of running out of tomato-based pizza sauce (the kids' pizzas polished it off). I'd been musing about a goat cheese sauce for veggies, so I decided to apply it tonight as a white pizza sauce. It was phenomenal.

All amounts are approximate because I was winging it on this recipe. I chopped half a large shallot finely and minced 2 cloves of garlic. These were fried in 1 tbsp butter in a skillet. I added about 1/2 -1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary. I added about 1 tsp of flour, 1 tbsp milk and 1/4+ cup chardonnay. I then added 3oz of chopped up goat cheese. I used the chardonnay to get the right sauce texture. I used this goat cheese sauce as my base sauce and brushed the outer diameter with olive oil. I topped the pizza with slices of tomato and matchsticks of red pepper and some grated mozzarella, crumbled goat cheese, and plenty of pine nuts. A little grated pepper and we had a divine (yes, divine) pizza.
