Pizza Soup

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! 


  1. This sounds great! I would love to know how your husband makes the pizza sauce!

  2. I will ask him for a general recipe. I know that he does not really measure anything and just kinda wings it by taste. I'll do a post on what he tells me :)

  3. Can't wait to make this! I think my kids would like it too.

  4. HMMM I think I am making this friday. thanks for posting it


  5. Love pizza soup! My mom makes a killer pot of this... Sooo good!! Yum!
