Anna’s take: I remember growing up in Westfield and going to Jan’s Village Pizza after Westfield High School football games for pizza and soda. A decade later, the little pizzeria is still the same, with red-and-white checked tablecloths and an expansive menu. I am not a big fan of thick crust, so I appreciate the crunchy thin crust of the pizzas. I also am not your typical pepperoni-and-sausage gal. I like a little variety, so the Mediterranean pizza was perfect. It has Greek dressing, spinach, feta cheese, chicken, bacon, banana peppers and mozzarella. You can order a personal 8-inch pizza up to a giant 20-inch pizza. 

Suggested pairings: Try the wine float ($6.50), with various flavor combos. My favorite is The Crystal Unicorn, with rainbow sherbet and Riesling, but trust me — order the wine float.
