Simple Pizza Soup Recipe

Now that the colder weather is here there is a greater desire for hot stovetop meals such as soup and stews. Soups are also a great way to get kids to reap the nutritional benefits of vegetables without necessarily having to eat the vegetable directly as the vitamins are absorbed into the surrounding liquid. I have a family favorite Pizza Soup recipe that we all enjoy in the winter months. The recipe is much like other pizza soup recipes you will find in cook books and other cooking websites. The common ingredients of any pizza soup is the tomatoes, Italian Seasonings, and cheese. From that point on, the composition of the soup is at your own descretion. I follow this recipe since these are ingredients I would most likely order on a traditional pizza. I strongly recommend a good loaf of Italian Bread to accompany this tasty soup.

Simple Pizza Soup Recipe

1 can diced tomatoes (28 ounces) – do not drain liquid
1 can chicken broth (15 ounce)
1 cup pepperoni, chopped
½ pound Italian sausage, cooked and diced
1 ½ cup mushrooms, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup water
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese


1. Sauté onion and pepper together in large sauce pan.
2. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
3. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking covered for additional twenty minutes.
4. Upon serving, top each bowl with shredded mozzarella cheese.
