A Great Choice in Frozen Pizza

Kashi Roasted Vegetable Pizza

Pizza can be a great snack. Snack-Girl has featured Mini Mini Pizzas and English Muffin Pizza as a way to get your pizza fix for less calories.

What about frozen pizzas? I suggested putting extra vegetables on a regular frozen pizza to bring up its nutrition content see: Pizza With Vegetables

And then, Kim, asked me about Kashi Roasted Vegetable Pizza. I had reviewed Kashi Crackers and was a bit skeptical that they could BRING it when it came to pizza - but I have been surprised!

But, first, I had to find the find it! I had to REALLY search for this pizza in my Stop-N-Shop. It seems that THESE frozen pizzas are in the "Natural Foods" section (aren't all foods natural??) - and not with the other frozen pizzas.

There is A LOT to like. A whole grain crust (first ingredient), cheese, vegetables, tomato sauce, salt, and a little sugar. There is 4 grams of fiber and 19 grams of protein!

The down side - 26% of your daily allowance of sodium - is to be expected when dealing with a processed food.

It is vegetarian, and, for a frozen pizza, delicious! I think frozen pizzas are expensive ($5), but I am going to buy a few to put in my fridge when we hit a cooking wall.

Almost everything with food is relative. The best healthy snack is an apple (truly) and I would not compare Kashi Frozen Vegetable Pizza to an apple - but I would use it in a pinch when I need a quick lunch, dinner, or snack when I was out of apples.

It is MUCH better than Evil Pizza, and a healthy choice. Probably once a week is okay for this product as opposed to a fast food burger (which should be about once a month).

Given the realities of our daily lives, stuff like this can be helpful. Kashi has some other flavors of this "Stone-Fired Thin Crust" - I haven't tried them. I try to stick to pizza with lots of vegetables on it.

Please share your favorite healthy pizza ideas.

I really love your thoughts towards it- the fact that it ISN'T an apple, but it still has its redeeming qualities, and that it's pretty good for a frozen pizza. Sometimes it's handy to have those things in the freezer "just in case".

I have to agree with the idea of doctoring up frozen pizza. However, my favourite quick dinner is made by keeping a package of pita's in the fridge along with a squeeze bottle of sauce. When I was a student, I'd chop a pepper and onion, buy a small package of sliced peperoni, and grate some cheese and I had lunch or dinner for the week. The pitas make a great thin crust and don't get soggy the way english muffins do. It got to the point that I didn't like take out pizza (too much cheese, and too few veggies!)
My husband's version is heavy on the meat and cheese, but he still gets some veggies and I'm happier with my meal.
Thanks for the reminder.

My favorite healthy pizza is a whole wheat tortilla (not low carb) baked in the oven for about 3-4 minutes then topped with bbq sauce, grilled chicken, red onion, cilantro and low fat cheese, bake at 400 degrees for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese. You can make these pizzas with any toppings, pineapple and turkey bacon, etc...the possibilities are endless!

When it comes to frozen pizza, the only one I buy is Amy's spinach. 310 cal for 1/3 of the pie and it's really very good for frozen.

I bought and tried this same Kashi pizza- overcooked it a bit- but if you can eat a super crisp cracker like crust with very little on top- it was okay-- nothing I would buy again- but I will start making my own- from the ideas above- also love those 90 calorie flat breads for pizza too.
