Reviews for Sausage Pizza Soup
"very taste, l used pork sausage, had it on hand."
"very good. Even my daughter who is usually a vegetarian couldn't resist a bowl and has since kept saying how good this was. Maybe i can try to make it with vegan sausage & vegetable broth for her."
"I used italian chicken sausage and added oregano and garlic. Delicious!"
"I made this for dinner tonight for my husband and I, with a few changes. I added a little bit of whole wheat rontini since I was making it to be a meal. I also added 2 teaspoons of oregano and about a teaspoon of garlic powder with the basil. I served it with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. Very yummy this way! I loved that it made the perfect amount for the two of us with dinner rolls and a salad. It also went together very quickly :)"
"I did alter this recipe - I added elbow macaroni and I doubled the amount of turkey sausage. I also left out the water and just used the chicken broth. With those modifications I give this four stars!"
