Lean Cuisine Farmer’s Market Pizza Review

Lean Cuisine Farmer's Market Pizza

We’ve had mixed experiences with Lean Cuisine pizzas so far. Their Thin Crust Margherita Pizza was decent, if not amazing, while their Thin Crust BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza was a soggy mess. We weren’t sure we’d like the Lean Cuisine Farmer’s Market Pizza — which is part of Lean Cuisine’s Origins line — but we knew we had to give it a try.

Even though this is a new dish, the heating instructions are similar to other pizzas in the Lean Cuisine line. You tear apart the box, place the pizza on a crisping tray, and toss it in the microwave. Easy-peasy!

As you can see, this pizza is loaded with veggies. There’s some nice variety here, from red peppers to meaty portabella mushrooms to organic tomatoes. We especially enjoyed the organic kale. We see spinach on a lot of pizzas, but kale is a rare treat. The texture is perfect, even after a good microwaving.

That said, we’re not sure we can recommend taking this pizza with you to work. It’s incredibly messy. Lean Cuisine is pretty stingy with their mozzarella cheese, which means the ingredients aren’t really held in place. Everything was dripping off our pizza as we ate it, from sauce to veggies to chunks of cheese. We felt like we had a full slice’s worth of toppings on our plate after our pizza was eaten.

In the flavor department, we’d rank this pizza as decent. The crust is on the dry side; it definitely detracts from the taste of this meal. Bites that were loaded with cheese and veggies were pretty appealing, but the bites that were just sauce and pizza were pretty bland. The Lean Cuisine Farmer’s Market Pizza won’t blow you away, but it won’t disgust you either.

This meal is reasonably healthy, at least when compared to other frozen pizzas, but it’s loaded with sodium; it has 610mg in total. It also clocks in at 320 calories. Unless you’re really in the mood for pizza, we think Lean Cuisine offers some more appetizing  — and less messy — options.
