On Thursday we will be having Pizza Soup for dinner. This is one of my favorite soups and we have it often in the winter. I orginally got the recipe here. I no longer follow this recipe exactly since my husband makes our pizza sauce himself and we no longer buy jar sauce. So here is my recipe in case I am not the only one who makes their own pizza sauce :)
6 cups pizza sauce
5 cups water
1 - chopped up green pepper
1- can chopped up mushrooms or fresh mushrooms if I have them
1 package browned and drained sausage or sometimes I leave this out if we don't have any
1 cup chopped up pepperoni slices ( we usually always have these since we make alot of homemade pizza)
1/3 to 1/2 cup Orzo pasta
Add all of the chopped up veggies and meat to the crock pot. Then add the sauce and water. Cook on low 7-9 hours. Top with mozzarella cheese before serving.
I basically add anything that you would eat on a pizza. I have made this on the stove top before also. This is a really good soup that even my kids enjoy!
