Frozen Meal Series: Kashi Vegetable Pizza

boxed food

I need more frozen food in my life – high quality, low cost, healthy, and delicious frozen food. There are more nights than I care to admit where dinner in a combination of pantry/fridge odds and ends. These meals leave me unsatisfied and most likely overfed. I’m looking for brands I can trust – brands with commercials that show people cycling, hiking, looking healthy, and most importantly smiling about their food. Kashi is one such brand. Known for their cereal (think GOLEAN (crunch)), Kashi has won over countless Americans aiming to eat healthy on a budget/time constraint. Let’s see how the hot food fares:

closer look

First, let’s cover expectations. My last pizza dinner was at Antico Pizza Napoletana – that just ain’t gonna happen in my kitchen, coming from a box in the freezer. Second, let’s cover the positives. Kashi does not lie – the crust is THIN, the cheese covers enough ground, and the sauce is decent. Third, let’s get to the negatives. Vegetables are not the highlight of the pizza – the ‘trio’ of mushrooms consisted of 7 or so mushrooms that all looked like the same type while the spinach would not be Popeye approved. Also, we(Lauren) burned the crust so a fair assessment could not be made.

While this meal would not fall under the Dreaming About category, it was sufficient and it succeeded in meeting all of my requirements (although maybe slightly south of delicious). I would eat it again, but I won’t be craving it.

  1. I am a big fan of the Kashi Tuscan Vege Bake and the Pesto Primavera isnt so bad. My favorite is the Black Bean Mango Salsa. It has a great kick to it.

    • Thanks – I’ll have to look for those next time. I just bought a TON of Amy’s products since they seemed to have the most inventory at my local store. But I like the sound of the Vege Bake.

  2. I am very much crazy about eating pizza that too I use to eat Kashi Vegetable Pizza. I think Kashi is the best brand. But i think pizza has to prepared at home so that you can have more control over the ingredients.
