Pizza Soup

This family favorite is done in no time at all. I like to serve it with a crusty bread or garlic bread, and I'll sometimes use bacon or salami instead of pepperoni (just like a pizza!).—Janet Beldman, London, Ontario

    On a cold afternoon decided to try this recipe, came out quite delicious if you love pizza toppings. As a field editor I did make some changes/additions to this recipe. It's just what I do when I cook, I used Italian Sweet Sausage and added carrots instead of green pepper. I used what I had during a pandemic. Also used tomato puree to make it nice and thick instead of diced tomatoes. I think either way this is a most delicious recipe for pizza lovers.
