This is it! I frequent a resturant that serves pizza soup and this is the closest recipe I've found for it. I added chopped green pepper and used pizza sausage. I also made my own pizza sauce using "easy pizza sauce II" (from this site). I realize that this may be an aquired taste but I think it's great I can't wait to make it for my brother...he's gonna flip! Thanks Pam! Read More

This was very good. We did modify it based on some reviews. We added garlic & peppers and used 1/2 the pepperoni which we cut into quarters. Next time we want to get stick pepperoni to have bigger bits in the soup. Another addition we tried was adding another cup of water and a cup of orzo we liked the texture the pasta added. The flavor was pretty good it does need a boost maybe more italian seasoning next time too. We'll have it again though - it was easy & quick as well that always helps on busy work nights:) UPDATE I made this again using 1tbsp italian seasoning and cutting up a 5oz stick of pepperoni into chuncks and it made the world of difference - we all really loved it - it disappeared this time lol:) Read More

Used hamburger meat instead of Italian sausage and cooked it in the slow cooker. The kids loved it. We'll be making this again soon. Read More

Made some modifications to suit our family's tastes added black olives took out the mushrooms added some green onions. Fried up the onions with the italian sausage along with about a clove of garlic. Had to add about another cup of water and a can of tomato paste due to the increased toppings (i used a whole lb. of italian sausage). Threw it all in the crock pot for about 3 hours on high. My family was skepitcal when i said i was making pizza soup but once tasting it even the picky eaters loved it! Definately one for the recipe books. Read More

This is exactly what I was looking for. Tweeked it a little. Added green and red peppers used pizza seasoning garlic and onion diced canned tomatoes the parmesean is critical and mozzeralla when served. Added 2 tsp jarred garlic and used 6 cups of water for a larger serving amount and adjusted the amounts for the rest of the receipe. Also added pre cooked penne pasta in the end. It was so good I made two pots back to back as my husband and I couldn't get enough. I Served with breadsticks or Italian bread is a hearty meal I will definately be making all winter. I am also giving samples to my friends and the receipe upon request. Read More

I've made pizza soup before & I found this recipe to guide me. I gave it 4 stars because it needs extra seasoning not provided by the recipe. I changed the water for beef stock added garlic SALT (which I find it needs) salt black pepper about a tbsp of the italian seasoning & extra oregano & basil ( 1tbsp of oregano & 1tsp. of basil). I assume the lack of salt is (I didn't have the sausage) because the sausage provides it. I had pepperoni cubes (1"x1" thick) frozen for making pizza pockets but they ended up in the soup. The hubs prefers the peppers crunchy so I'll add them before he goes to work so that they cook a bit when he reheats it there. Not bad just a bit more is needed & you have it all in your spice rack.
