Lean Cuisine Comfort Thin Crust BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza Review

Lean Cuisine Comfort Thin Crust BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza

Sometimes, we’ll take a second look at a frozen food we’ve reviewed in the past, especially if something about the meal has changed. Since Lean Cuisine has been shuffling their frozen dinners around and changing the packaging, we’ve actually been retrying a fair amount of things we’ve weighed in on in the past.

The Lean Cuisine Thin Crust BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza is one such item. This frozen pizza has moved from the Craveables line to the Comfort line, so this is as good a time as any to give this a second look. The last time we reviewed this, we had this to say: ” the Lean Cuisine Thin Crust BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza doesn’t do anything to rise above mediocrity besides coming in a pretty package. And that’s the part we threw away.” We’re hoping we’ll enjoy it a bit more this time around.

We talked about the crisping tray in our last review of this pizza, so we won’t get into that here. If you want to know more about the cooking instructions, however, feel free to check out our previous review or the package scans at the bottom of this article.

This pizza still has problems. The crust has an unappealing texture and tastes like stale crackers. It’s also too thick, so that low-budget flavor permeates every bite. The cheese portion is stingy, so it ends up being dry rather than stretchy and gooey. The BBQ sauce, which is a big selling point for this pizza, has a really bad aftertaste as well.

The chicken, however, is pretty alright. It’s not amazing, but it’s juicy and it has a good flavor. It’s also striped with grill lines to give it an authentic look, though we’re not sure if those were just painted on or if they’re legitimate marks from a grill. We’re guessing the former, because they look a little too straight and perfect to be genuine.

It doesn’t look like much has changed in terms of nutrition. This still contains 390 calories and 280 mg of sodium, as well as 21 g of protein and the same preservative-free crust. While the calorie count isn’t in the diet-friendly range, this is actually really low in sodium for a frozen meal.

With the Lean Cuisine Thin Crust BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza, Lean Cuisine hasn’t really changed anything besides the box art. This was a great opportunity for the company to upgrade the quality of this frozen pizza, yet they were comfortable re-releasing the same product without any significant changes. We’re a little disappointed.
