Reviews forSausage Pizza Soup
"I made this last night for supper. I used Johnsonville mild Italian sausage because I had it on hand; it worked well but was probably a little greasier than chicken sausage might have been. My husband thought it was great. I thought it was a bit bland but that may have been because I left out the red pepper flakes. Next time I will definitely add red pepper flakes and maybe some minced garlic. I sprinkled a little shredded Parmesan cheese on the top as garnish and because what's pizza without a little cheese? ;) I did save this recipe in my recipe box so that it stays "in rotation." Very easy to make this 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 made this for my husband who is following the weight watcher points diet.....he loved it......he even had a second bowl!!"
