Pizza Soup

Sometimes something wonderful happens when you just throw some things together.

It works like magic.

And even stranger is when everyone likes it.

Even the picky kid who doesn't like anything.

That happened to me the other night.

We had a 4-H thing to go to and I knew that we probably wouldn't make it home till 8 and we would all be past ready to eat. And - as much as I love Chick-Fil-A - I would rather have chewed my arm off than have to eat another Chick-Fil-A salad.

So I looked to see what all I could throw together in the crockpot and then prayed it would be good.

It was.

It was so good that it was gone before I thought to get a picture (bad blogger).

Now you can try it.

Pizza Soup

As with all soups, if you don't like something, leave it out. If it is your favorite, then add some more.

  • 1 cup of browned hamburger meat
  • 1 onion chopped and browned
  • 1 or 2 bell peppers chopped (and browned if you don't want them crunchy)
  • 4 ounces Hormel pepperoni in a large dice (this is where most of the pizza-y flavor came from but it didn't overwhelm for those that don't like pepperoni)
  • 2 32 ounce cans of tomatoes (diced is good)
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt (or more or less)
  • enough water to make it a soupy thickness you like (2-3 cups)

Dump it all in the slowcooker and stir. Turn it on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

If you like olives, you can garnish with chopped olives. Next time I will be adding mushrooms because I love mushrooms.

We did think that this needs some kind of bread to go with it. Like GingerLemonGirl's Brazilian Cheese bread would be almost like dipping the pizza place cheese sticks into the soup.
