I prefer to build up from a simple base than have to pair down a bigger
default install. For this reason and for the fact that I find 'PF' far more
intuitive than Linux firewall configuration, I tend to favour OpenBSD for
this use. But it probably just comes down to personal preference and
whatever you are most comfortable with. Although were I to use Linux for
this sort of application I'd probably go with Arch, Debian or even just
Ubuntu Server rather than Ubuntu desktop (which involves a whole load of
stuff you just don't need).
