Living in Chicago we are blessed with some of the best pizza on earth. I don’t want to hear from you New Yorkers about your folded over cardboard, haha, you’re not going to convince me or turn me to the dark side!

However, we have our own internal squabbles here in Chicago…which pizza place is better? And there are so many many places. I grew up eating Aurelio’s Pizza….and if we had one near where I live that’s what I would eat every Friday night!

Typically if my family craves deep dish pizza, we make our own Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza recipe. I wondered what would happen if we took our favorite pizza and made soup!

This soup recipe is very customizable to your favorite pizza topping. And the best part is it’s made in the slow cooker!

First though, if adding sausage, you’ll need to brown it. Thankfully my Ninja Slow cooker has a setting to saute the meat before turning it on slow cooker mode. If your crockpot can’t do that, just brown the sausage in a large skillet on the stove top, and remove the excess fat.

Add all the remaining ingredients (except cheese) to the slow cooker with your meat. Turn on low for 6-8 hours.

When ready to serve, ladle soup in bowls and top with shredded cheese!

I love soup this time of year. Especially when it can be made in the crockpot! That’s a double win in my book!

Today’s recipe is like a “SUPREME” pizza soup. But feel free to add/remove ingredients for your family’s tastes!

I whipped up a side of easy refrigerated breadsticks to enjoy and dunk in our soup. Perfect.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Planning to make us for dinner tomorrow night! Yum! Is there a reason it needs to cook for six hours? Everything is already cooked… Input please…. The reason is I don’t think I have six hours tomorrow and so if I could get away with 1 to 3 that would be great

  2. What a fantastic idea! My kiddos will take pizza any way they can get it – they will LOVE finding the little pepperonis in this soup!

  3. When I told my boys about this soup, they were so excited to try a soup called PIZZA SOUP! haha! They loved it and I’ll for sure be making it again!

  4. Sad to say I have never tried a deep dish pizza, I feel like I am totally missing out! This is a soup I know we will be making on repeat!

  5. We love trying different pizzas and putting through taste tests too!!! Now I’m craving some deep dish pizza, but I’m trying to do no carbs this week! Good thing soup works for times like this! Pizza soup is a fav here but I have never done it in the crock pot! Awesome to know it works!

  6. It’s a good thing I don’t have a pizza place within walking distance of my house, I would surely weigh 10,000 pounds! I can’t wait to try this soup. I love soup, but my husband isn’t a fan. However, he loves pizza, so this may be the perfect soup for him!

  7. I will take any excuse I can get to eat pizza throughout the day. I grew up with NY-style pizza around me but actually like the Chicago deep dish kind better (sssshhh!!). 😉

  8. Aimee this soup looks amazing! Yum I want a bowl right now. I am jealous, we don’t have any great pizza places out here in little old desert California. I am so missing out. I need to take a vacay soon huh? 😉 Pinned.

  9. Oh. My. Gosh. I sooooooo miss Aurelios pizza !!!!!!!! I can still remember going tot he original one in Homewood. Living in South Texas good deep dish pizza is really hard to find, like non-existant. Once or twice a year we will order Lou Malneti’s thru the mail.

    Pinning the soup recipe.

  10. I completely agree about NY style pizza. One of the best things about living in the Chicago area (i’m in the southwest suburbs) is the great pizza. If you have one nearby I would recommend Beggar’s Pizza. Their regular (non-Chicago style) is a thin crust and it’s to die for. They have a Chicago style and a stuffed also, but my fave is the regular.

  11. My husband sometimes does commentary about what I can or should post. It is funny to have him so into it and at others times not so much.

  12. pizza in soup form…this is just genius! and I’m sure delicious, and this New Yorker has never had deep dish pizza, but now I am craving one

  13. You crack me up, Aimee! I love a good pizza and feel as though I should travel to Chicago just to get one. Until then I’m going to enjoy this soup. I looks incredible!

  14. This line: “this is my blog and my husbands vote doesn’t count”. You had me in stitches. How perfect. Love this soup. I have this with a slice of pizza on the side, please! 🙂
