10-minute Pizza Soup

Pizza may come in different forms, shapes and sizes. It may be big or small, thick or thin, square; circle or oblong and it may even come in different forms such as a pie, a pizza pocket, a calzone and even a soup! Call me crazy but a pizza soup can really be made starting with some fresh ingredients. With this soup, you can create tons more of dishes, or be as creative as you can be with pizza in mind.

 

Ingredients:

olive oil          

2-3 Italian sausage links

half bag frozen chopped broccoli

3 cups broth (I like to use half beef, half chicken.)

14.5 oz. can chopped tomatoes (I like Muir Glen fire-roasted.)

2-3 teaspoons Penzeys Pizza Seasoning

Directions:

  1. CCut the sausage into coins, moons, or dice. I like to make moons, then halve them. They look like little slices of pizza!

  2. Heat some olive oil in a saute pan and brown the sausage.

  3. Add the canned tomatoes and the pizza seasoning. Stir to combine.

  4. Pour in the broth, then add the broccoli. It can be frozen or defrosted; doesn’t matter.

  5. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.

  6. Ladle into deep bowls, then drizzle with a teaspoon of high-quality olive oil and a sprinkle of black pepper.
