This robust soup is a family favorite, and it's a big hit with my canasta group as well. I top each bowl with a slice of toasted bread and cheese, but you can have fun incorporating other pizza toppings such as cooked sausage. —Jackie Brossard Kitchener, Ontario

"Made this soup for my youth cooking class for ages 3-15 and it was a big success! Easy to throw together and of course with the pizza theme, it was a big hit with the crowd. Great recipe that can be adapted to suit tastes. Fun to add the cheese at the end too. (We left off the bread). Thanks for the recipe!"
