Kashi All Natural Five Cheese Tomato Pizza Review

Kashi Five Cheese Tomato PizzaKashi has a line of frozen pizzas where the pizza crust is made with their signature blend of Whole Grains & Sesame plus flax seed and the pizza is "stone-fired to bring out the natural flavors". I tried the Five Cheese Tomato which is made with a tomato basil sauce and ... what else but 5 cheeses, namely asiago, parmesan, mozarella, white and yellow cheddar. I put it in the toaster oven for 10 minutes and it came out looking exactly like the picture on the box.

The first bite was delicious and it kept delighting me the more I ate. It was cheesy (of course) and the sauce is not too heavy. I also really liked the thin crust. The folks at HeatEatRview hated it and called it bland, and I usually agree with them, but on this one I differ. I liked the fact that it was light and not greasy.

One serving of Kashi Five Cheese Tomato Pizza is 1/3rd of the pizza, and provides 290 calories, 9 grams of total fat including 3.5 grams of saturated fat (14% and 18% of the recommended daily amount respectively), 7% of the RDA for cholesterol, 24% of the RDA for sodium (570 mg), 14 grams of protein and 37 grams of total carbohydrates which includes 4 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber (18% of the RDA).

The first time I ate half the pizza for dinner which would be 435 calories and 27% of the RDA for saturated fat, but I was totally full and didn't eat anything else, so I'm pretty happy with that. The fat content is a little high, but that's the price we pay for eating a pizza with 5 cheeses - perhaps not the best choice if you're on a diet. Kashi also says this pizza is Vegetarian.

One pizza (12.5 ounces) cost $4.99, which at first seemed like a lot, but compare that to Wolgang Puck All Natural Four Cheese Tomato & Pesto Pizza which is 6.99, and this seems like a bargain. Plus consider that this quick meal that can feed 2 people, or 1 person can make 2 meals, then the price doesn't seem so bad. I enjoyed this, and would buy it again when the craving for pizza hits.
