Pizza Soup

Yes! I said soup.
I sounds a little weird.

However, it's a delightfully hearty soup that packs the full flavor of a meat-lovers pizza with each bite.
Go ahead, I dare you to NOT fall in love with this soup!

I've always loved this recipe and got it from my mom. 
She would always be sure to make a HUGE pot of this stew each and every time she would come to visit.
1 1/4 c. fresh sliced mushrooms
1/2 C. onion, chopped
2 zucchinis, sliced
1 tbsp. Olive oil or butter
1 lb. (16 oz) Italian sausage
1 (15 oz.) can pizza sauce
3 C. water
1 package (6 oz) turkey pepperoni, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
garlic salt---for flavoring the veggies

garnish items:
Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
black olives
Canadian bacon
...anything else that you'd love ON a pizza.
Cut up zucchini, mushrooms and onion.
Sprinkle garlic salt over all veggies.
Saute with olive oil (or butter) for about 3-5 min.
In a separate pot, brown the sausage.
Once browned, grab a colander.
Drain the fat. Do NOT rinse.
Return the sausage to the pot.
Add the sauteed veggies to the sausage.
Roughly chop the turkey pepperoni.
Add to pot.
Stir, then add the pizza sauce and 3 cups of water.
Stir and add the Italian seasoning.
Chop the tomato and add to pot.
Stir, then let simmer for about 20-30 min.
serve, alone with a spoon....
....dredged in your favorite toppings!

My boys LOVE pineapple and olives on their soup.
I also serve this soup along side my homemade bread
Enjoy this great rendition of an Italian dish!

Recipe coutesy from: Anne Holdaway, my food-tastic mother, who got it from my Aunt Ruth. ;)

Glad that you like my soup. I actually put it in a crockpot so that it can simmer longer and love it even more. Auntie R
