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

Ingredients

  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 package (3 ounces) sliced pepperoni, halved
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 package (11-1/4 ounces) frozen garlic Texas toast
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

In a 6-qt. slow cooker, combine first nine ingredients. Cook, covered, on low until chicken is tender, 6-8 hours .
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."
