This comforting soup satisfies our pizza cravings. It's super versatile, too, as I sometimes substitute light Italian sausage for the chicken or add a little Parmesan cheese. Go nuts and add all your favorite pizza toppings! —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, TX

  1. In a 6-qt. slow cooker, combine first nine ingredients. Cook, covered, on low until chicken is tender, 6-8 hours .
  2. For croutons, cut Texas toast into cubes; bake according to package directions. Add spinach to soup; heat through, stirring occasionally. Top servings with cheese and warm croutons.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled soup in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally. Prepare croutons as directed. Top soup with cheese and croutons.
    Yield: 10 servings (about 4 quarts).
Health Tip: The cheesy garlic croutons put this soup over the top, but it’s still amazing without them (and a lot leaner: just 150 calories and 6g fat per serving).

"I didn't care for this much. I was wishing I either was eating a slice of Pizza or having a nice bowl of soup. Not Pizza in my soup."
