Jan’s Village Pizza, 108 S. Union St. has won top honors at a show featuring some of the best pizza in the nation. The event, hosted by Performance Presto, reviews 30 pizzas in a bake-off following the costumer appreciation dinner.

“Our Pesto Pizzaz took third best in the Midwest,” Owner Kim Kercheval said. “Our vision is to provide only the freshest and highest quality ingredients for our pizzas, and to maintain a great atmosphere for all our crew to grow and excel in life as well as business.”

In fact, Westfield High School Student Caitlin Fekete created the pizza that was selected for the award. The pizza had chicken, bacon, tomato, with parmesan and pesto sauce drizzled on top.

Bryan and Kim Kercheval bought Jan’s Pizza less than a year ago after the original owners retired.

“It was an amazing feeling because we bought Jan’s about one year ago,” Kercheval said. “So, this was a great honor.”

Kercheval said that Jan’s has started expanding and is adding new endeavors all the time.

“We have online ordering, a pizza buffet before and after home football games,” Kercheval said. “And a party room that seats 48 is available for booking.”

Jan’s Village Pizza will serve food at Savor Westfield from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sept. 14. The event is hosted at the Bridgewater Club, 3535 E 161st St. Tickets start at $30. For more, visit savorwestfield.com. For more on Jan’s Village Pizza, visit jansvillagepizzas.com
