Kashi is taking on too many challenges with their Thin Crust Mushroom Trio and Spinach frozen pizza. It's hard enough to make a tasty frozen pizza crust, let alone a healthy, tasty frozen pizza crust.

This pizza's "stone-fired thin crust" is made with seven whole grains, sesame, and flax seed. It's a bit like a fibrous cracker that you have to chew for a while before swallowing. It could use a little more seasoning, but if you're used to eating high-fiber cereal, you may be able to get past the flavor of the crust and texture to enjoy the toppings on this pie.

The sauce and cheese aren't bad, and they extend all the way to the edge of the pizza, which is a good idea, given the crust issues. The mushrooms topping the pie are earthy and flavorful. I wish they'd left the spinach off, though—it's a bit murky-tasting, without any fresh green flavor.

Have you tried Kashi's frozen pizzas? Are their original-crust pies a better choice?
