If you liked lasagna in soup form, then you’ll definitely love this pizza in soup form!!! This hearty soup is packed with all your favorite pizza toppings and tastes just like a delicious pizza minus the crust!
All your favorite pizza toppings in a warm and hearty soup!
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 lb Italian sausage
- 1 medium sweet onion, diced
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 8 oz fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 4 oz pepperoni, chopped
- 2 small bell peppers (any color), diced
- salt and pepper
- 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
- 14 oz can petite diced tomatoes, drained
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups pizza sauce
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
In a large stock pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add the sausage, breaking large clumps into smaller pieces and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, onions and bell peppers. Cook until fragrant and soft, about 3-5 minutes. Add in the mushrooms and pepperoni and
sprinkle with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Continue cooking until the veggies are soft, about 5 minutes.
Stir in diced tomatoes, chicken broth and pizza sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in cheese and simmer 5 more minutes until melted.
Serve immediately with additional parmesan cheese and garnish with fresh chopped basil or parsley, if desired. Soup goes well with crusty bread or garlic bread!

Do you come up with these recipes on your own. You seem so busy—how do you have the time?!? =P
I usually find a few similar recipes and pull ingredients I like from each and then tweak it a bit! I always make soup on Sundays! 🙂

Yum!! Making this for my family next week. You’ve always got the best soup recipes. I always forget about Italian sausage so it’ll be a fun change of pace for my crew.
