Homemade pizza for a friend's baby shower..

A couple close friends of mine, Ro and Chris, are having a baby. Ro and I work together and one of our co-workers decided to throw her a special baby shower. I was asked to make my famous pizza and was told to top it with grilled vegetables. 11 cups of flour later, I finally had enough dough to make 4 pizzas...
I ran to the store, bought all kinds of veggies including butternut squash, red and green bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, red onion, broccoli and garlic. Chopped it all up and roasted it with EVOO, sea salt and cracked black pepper until it was nice and caramelized. 
 The home was decorated beautifully with glossy silverware, darling placemats, organic grapes to snack on and of course lovely tunes like Over the Rhine filling the room with a calm, unpretentious ambience.  I loved that it wasn't a typical baby shower with the same old games no one wants to play. Instead we had great conversation, took turns getting facials & hand massages from 2 lovely ladies for an affordable price.. it was a relaxing and fun night for everyone! And lastly, the food was delicious. Tahmi, the hostess, prepared a tasty spinach salad with roasted beets, walnuts, and goat cheese.

The shower was a success, the pizza was well received and most importantly, Ro was thrilled! It was a great night. If you are interested in having a Chef Teebs' pizza at your next party, drop me a line!

The colors are amazing on your pizza! I love how fresh all the food looked. Do you use your moms dough recipe? I just hers for the first time this week and it turned out perfect! I'm curious though, have you ever made wheat crust?
