I bought this because I had a coupon, it was on sale, & it was made with whole grains & vegetables, fairly low in calories & carbs. (I got the Mushroom Trio & Spinach variety.) A serving size = 1/3 of a small, thin pizza ---which my husband said "wouldn't satisfy a cat." So we divided it in half (still only 375 calories) & topped it with broccoli & turkey pepperoni. My husband (who doesn't have an oz. of fat on him) added provolone slices & a half of a tortilla on top... (click title for more)
...of his half. It was probably a better choice than other frozen pizzas, but certainly not worth the full retail price. I didn't think it was worth the sale price minus the coupon, either. Next time I'll make my own with whole wheat flat bread or pitas. (See comment for sodium info.)

Cream Cheese, cookies,brownies,soda at all [no diet,nothing],cupcakes,donuts, high cal pizza[we go for Kashi Med. pizza @ 290 for a 1/3 slice],cakes,pies,ice cream[we go for frozen yogurt instead!~our fave=Chocolate Fudge Brownie Frozen Yogurt by Dreyer's!]. We know we eat processed foods,just changing our preferences on what not to eat! What foods do you keep out of your house?
I found this pizza @ Henry's--Kashi Mediterrean Pizza.It has feta cheese,spinach,red onion & sweet red peppers on a stone-fired Kashi 7 whole grains& sesame with flaxseed crust! It has 13g =whole grains/15g=protein and 5g=fiber! I LOVE being able to eat pizza again!
Note:There IS Fat=9g,but ALSO even though Sat.Fat is 4g,the "good"fats are included--polyunsaturated fat=1.5g and Monounsaturated fat=3g.
When shopping for groceries stick to the perimeter of the store and avoid the aisles. The perimeter usually contains your produce, meats, dairy aisle and bakery allowing to reduce the amount of processed and sugary foods you purchase.
The frozen vegetable aisle is also valuable, but avoid the sections of ice cream and frozen pizzas.
