Billy and Brooke West decided to give their son Jake a throw and dough pizza party at Vecchia for his 6th Birthday. They were planning a trip to Disney World but wanted to do something on his actual birthday which fell on a school night. With an invite list of 20 children, mom Brooke said this was a perfect party because it didn’t stress her out she simply had to order a cake and party favors. Since the party included dinner, it was also easy for the parents of the children attending. Brooke said her son Jake is a pizza lover and loved getting to make pizza with friends.
